Love that first cover- it's a Herzog megamix!

That first comp pictured above was my introduction to PV, I'd actually recommend it as a good starting point.

Die Grosse Ekstase die Bildschnitzers Steiner (The Great Ecstasy of the Woodcarver Steiner) (director: Werner Herzog, 1973)
This is a typically idiosyncratic Herzog documentary on the Swiss show jumper, Walter Steiner. Features some lovely Popol Vuh music, music which I’ve yet to hear on any album – damn it!

Has any of the music for this ever been released? It drives me crazy that I can't find the main theme for this film anywhere.

Nice-looking boxset, though it's just five of the SPV soundtracks and no bonus tracks:


**Super luxurious, Limited edition 5CD collector's box including 98-page hardback book** The divine music of Popol Vuh is inextricable from the Werner Herzog films it soundtracks. German label SPV have compiled their body of five full length cinematic commissions Heart of Glass (1976), and the Klaus Kinski-starring Aguirre (1972), Nosferatu (1979), Fitzcarraldo (1982) and Cobra Verde (1987) in one beautiful box set. Scoring Herzog's 'Aguirre', Popol Vuh, lead by Florian Fricke, established a longstanding relationship with the director, providing him with a milestone of electronic music which is still named as a masterpiece to this day. Fricke's innately moving compositions presaged the electronic ambient and new age genres, incorporating avant-garde classical, religious music, prog and krautrock themes into a substantial, harmonically rich sound. As fellow krautrock pioneer Klaus Schulze says "Here, he went on to create a new world, which Werner Herzog loves so much, transforming the thought pattern of electronic music into the language of acoustic ethno music" perfectly reflecting the films inherent themes of humanity, religion and nature. Over the next fifteen years Fricke's musical evolution was charted by his work for Herzog, weaving increasingly elaborate instrumentation into the electronic fabric of his compositions. Between his captivating choral work for Nosferatu, the operatic classicism of Fitzcarraldo, or the breathtaking lushness of Cobra Verde, Fricke and Popol Vuh inspired a generation and re-defined the art of the soundtrack. This box set is a tremendous testament to his accomplishments - grab one while you can.

Aguirre is the only own I already own out of those five.

Trip Maker, Thursday, 20 January 2011 15:51 (seven years ago) Permalink

Same here, though the fact that they're all on Spotify makes me substantially less likely to shell out £40. It does look nice though.

Can your monkey do the Bot? (seandalai), Thursday, 20 January 2011 15:58 (seven years ago) Permalink

yeah kinda want this -- don't have cobra verde or heart of glass. box is not terribly expensive, given that it's "super luxurious"

tylerw, Thursday, 20 January 2011 15:58 (seven years ago) Permalink

already have most of these, curious about the book but not enough to buy it

am0n, Thursday, 20 January 2011 16:26 (seven years ago) Permalink

coeur de verre is one of my favorites of all of their records -- get it immediately!

here's the latest reissue, with a disc of remixes by Moritz von Oswald, Stereolab, etc:


geeta, Wednesday, 1 June 2011 19:31 (six years ago) Permalink

I've been waiting for this to come out!! It's even on my calendar. Have you heard it?

Garyln (La Lechera), Wednesday, 1 June 2011 19:33 (six years ago) Permalink

june 24th -- i guess i'm going to be reviewing it? i'm trying to figure out who's working the promo for this. it's not forced exposure.

geeta, Wednesday, 1 June 2011 19:37 (six years ago) Permalink

i guess i'm only really interested in disc 2 since i could assemble disc 1 myself, but w/e

oh man i thought this came out on june 24, and i started to get excited, but then i realized it was july 24 :(

Fa la la (La Lechera), Wednesday, 29 June 2011 14:49 (six years ago) Permalink

ah. it's already out in germany, but it won't be coming out til july 24 in the US.

geeta, Wednesday, 29 June 2011 23:52 (six years ago) Permalink

just got my hands on this--reviewing it for the Voice.

my favorite remixes: 'In den Gärten Pharaos' remixed by Moritz von Oswald, 'Nachts: Schnee' remixed by Mika Vainio

the Thomas Fehlmann remix of 'Schnee' is also very nice

'Through Pain to Heaven' remixed by Mouse on Mars is super glitchy, sounds like Mouse on Mars circa 'Radical Connector'

not really feeling the Stereolab remix of 'Hosianna Mantra'

geeta, Wednesday, 6 July 2011 16:21 (six years ago) Permalink

cool, sounds interesting. did anyone buy that soundtracks box set? i still haven't dropped the $$$. convince me to do it! is the book pretty?

tylerw, Wednesday, 6 July 2011 19:28 (six years ago) Permalink

Still loving the Moritz remix...it's kind of refreshing to hear him making straight up techno again after all that Moritz von Oswald Trio stuff

The Stereolab remix I have more time for, after listening to it a few more times...but there's something very mysterious about the original, and Stereolab's take on it sounds very Stereolab, and not mysterious at all

geeta, Thursday, 7 July 2011 20:10 (six years ago) Permalink

i finally got a record by these suckas!

it's good

aguirre it's call, think it's a film soundtrack, got it on vinyl at a garage sale
