Boomkat Product Review:
'La Sangre Iluminada' (Enlightened Blood) is Murcof's OST to a 2009 film directed by Ivan Duenas and inspired by Jose Carlos Becerra's poems. The film tells the story of six characters who mutate into new bodies. Deep down, all six keep traces of their past lives, of the former bodies they miss; deep seated nostalgia has a hold on them. Murcof's vaporous soundscapes track a tale hovering between tragedy and science fiction; an aesthetic clearly reflected in his individual fusion of neo-classical string arrangements and spectral, spatialized electronics. Murcof has re-edited his work specially for this release, which has also been mastered by another sound sorceror, Rashad Becker at Berlin's Dubplates & Mastering. Lovers of contemporary soundtracks will be in their element!
