To coincide with the release of The Last Few Seconds Before Sleep, I decided to put together a little companion mix traveling through the psychic landscape of some of my favourite corners of cinema. Obviously you can take the list of films and directors as a recommendations list also.

Get it free here but I’d recommend subscribing to the BK20 podcast via iTunes or whichever delivery system you use. Here’s the spraff on it.

Erstlaub – BrokenCinema

When he’s not forging mystical drone behemoths out of the void as Erstlaub, Dave Fyans is also the Art Director here at Broken20 and something of a cinema obsessive. He’s put together a mix in the form of BrokenCinema, an 80 minute collection of soundtrack music based around films, directors and musicians that have particular resonance within the context of the basis for the label, summed up perfectly by his favourite director Andrei Tarkovsky in the following quote.

“The Japanese therefore see a particular charm in the evidence of old age. They are attracted to the darkened tone of an old tree, the ruggedness of a stone, or even the scruffy look of a picture whose edges have been handled by a great many people. To all these signs of age they give the name, saba, which literally means “rust”. Saba, then, is a natural rustiness, the charm of olden days, the stamp of time. Saba, as an element of beauty, embodies the link between art and nature.”

(Andrei Tarkovsky, Sculpting In Time).
