"Zoetrope" (1999) is an experimental avant-garde short film by music-video director Charlie Deaux. It presents a haunting, apocalyptic story of man’s metaphysical existence. Inspired by Franz Kafka’s story "In the Penal Colony", the film is an attempt to transfer Kafka's dark, nightmarish vision and gloomy atmosphere to celluloid. Consisting of both the music and extensive sound design of the movie, melded and mutated to recapture the atmospheric nightmare of the world that is Zoetrope, where walls breath and dreams become nightmares. Originally conceived as a two month music and sound design project, it quickly evolved into a three year journey into madness, as Zoetrope the movie became a complex exercise in pure cinema and sound. For this score, Lustmord maintained the focus on aleatoric sound manipulations made of echoing effects, tormented voices, industrial artifacts and slightly neglect the specific rumbling and layered electronic textures that were heavily substantial in his previous efforts. Originally released in 2002 by Nextera. This beautiful vinyl reissue features the never before released track 'The Abhorrent Apparatus' and is presented in a sumptuous gatefold sleeve.
