2010 release. From the award-winning filmmakers behind Monks: The Transatlantic Feedback (PL 004DVD, 2006), Dietmar Post (USA/Germany) and Lucía Palacios (Spain), come two direct cinema documentaries, Klangbad: Avant-Garde in the Meadows (85 minutes, 2009) and Faust: Live at Klangbad Festival (70 minutes, 2010). The first takes as its subject the pop avant-garde music festival Klangbad, curated by Hans-Joachim Irmler (founding member of the seminal krautrock band Faust). Since 2004, the picturesque German village of Scheer has hosted an innovative musical journey crossing various genres. In today's profit-oriented event scene, it is hard to find anything comparable. The festival is small but growing constantly. Despite this fact, it abandons commercial sponsoring, unlike normal open-air festivals. Post and Palacios paint a portrait of this fine festival in the style of such direct cinema pioneers as Murray Lerner (Festival!, 1967), Albert and David Maysles (Gimme Shelter, 1970), and D. A. Pennebaker (Monterey Pop, 1968). Klangbad: Avant-Garde in the Meadows follows that tradition of carefully chronicling an event, with appearances by Minit, Jutta Koether, Steven W. Lobdell, Kammerflimmer Kollektief, Cpt. Howdy, Circle, Faust, The One Ensemble of Daniel Padden, and Nista Nije Nista. Faust: Live at Klangbad Festival captures a rare live performance by Faust (Steven Wray Lobdell, guitar; Michael Stoll, bass and flute; Lars Paukstat, percussion and vocals; Hans-Joachim Irmler, organ; Ralf Meinz, drums and FX; and Arnulf Meifert, percussion). This DVD also contains 25 minutes of bonus material, including trailers for the films Klangbad: Avant-Garde in the Meadows, Faust: Live at Klangbad Festival, Monks: The Transatlantic Feedback, FM Einheit + Irmler: Live at Berghain, Doc Schoko: Oktopus im Pentagramm, A Summer Evening with Floating di Morel, and Martin Rev: Electronic Pioneer, as well as the art film "Pesadilla" by Baseline. Includes eight-page color booklet with detailed liner notes, track listings, photographs, reprint of original Klangbad poster, and a list of every band to play at the festival from 2004-2009. Drawings by German painter Daniel Richter. Concept, artwork, compilation, and production by Dietmar Post and Lucía Palacios. DVD is all-region; NTSC format.
