Boomkat Product Review:
Tech-house polka, Turkish psych disco and fluffy electronica dub; a soundtrack by Console’s Martin Gretschmann aka Acid Pauli
“Acid Pauli and Nico Stojan's label Ouïe proudly presents the original film score and soundtrack album for the new German moive 'Es war einmal Indianerland' which roughly translates into 'Once upon a time there was Indian's Land', which will be released internationally on 13th October and which is centered around twelve brand new songs by Acid Pauli.
On this vinyl version you'll find a fine selection of new workls by Acid Pauli that are taken from the soundtrack.
The soundtrack of Acid Pauli aka Martin Gretschmann (The Notwist, Console) plays a central role and originates from the close collaboration between Acid Pauli and director Ilker Çatak. « When I confirmed the film project, I was at that time constantly listening to Acid Pauli’s music. Everytime I looked at the screenplay one of his mixes were playing. So I thought : it would be awesome if the film was accompanied by this kind of music. » says Çatak.
Acid Pauli’s music, as prooved on his BLD album, is as eclectic and adventurous as Acid Pauli himself : from dystopic, carnivalesque moods via moments of high intensity to deep melancholia and fragile atmosphere – boundaries are being teared down. Sometime psychedelic and far out, sometime focused, catchy with one eye on the dancefloor. But never expectable. A musical work for the adventurous.
This was the basis for a close collaboration, a joint journey to Mexico and the fascinating soundtrack of an exceptional film.
'His œuvre is much more than the stuff he made as Acid Pauli. And that’s what he offered me - it was like you’re going to a lake but instead you see an ocean.' says Ilker Çatak. 'He always grasped what I was looking for. The soundtrack is a mixture of his old and new tracks and music of artists that he knows.’”
