Moderat and Monkeytown reveal film score for ‘A Thought of Ecstacy’

Monkeytown Records artists Moderat, Gajek, Plaid and Anstam have joined forces in creating an ethereal score for the erotic German arthouse film A Thought of Ecstacy.

Curated by Szary of Modeselektor and Matti Gajek, the soundtrack features poetic spoken word moments from actress Deborah Kara Unger and numerous dramatic soundscapes from these cutting-edge artists.

Taking place in the unrelenting heat of the California desert, A Thought of Ecstasy follows a tortured man who journeys to America to find his lost lover, a woman hellbent on revenge and their youthful memories that bring about feelings of destruction.

The most notable moment on the score is Moderat’s contribution ‘Invaluable Waste from the Outlying Districts (Part I, II, III, IV)’. The power-group, which announced its indefinite hiatus last year following the release of the album ‘III’, create blissed out compositions with a repetitive and meditative aura.
