Electronic soundtrack recording by Zn'shñ for its "Butoh sweets" work.
A full electronic soundtrack accompanying the eponymous silent movie inspired by Butoh performances & iconography — realized by Elvire Bastendorff & Franck Smith. The disc "Butoh sweets" (adventures in dance, flour & colours), interlaces subltle noise machinery, refined glitchy pulses & sophisticated bitcrushing, to create an inedit composition full of passion for darkness. A work dedicated to Butoh founder Hijikata Tatsumi (1928-1986).
