‘Sorge*’ by Film 2 | Special Album Release
Film 2 is a Swiss experimental noise-kraut band featuring Jonas Albrecht, Elias Bieri and Elischa Heller. Their new album ‘Sorge*’ is out today via BlauBlau Records and it is unique!
The LP consists of a 40-minute song called ‘Welt,’ that has been performed, captured and processed three times in three different contexts and no one knows which version will end up on the turntable. The three versions are all the same and they are different, simultaneously.
If you order a vinyl, you will always get a random version. There are 33 vinyl records for each version. There are three covers as well. There is no correlation between the artwork and the version of ‘Sorge*’ you receive. Additionally, every new moon and every full moon, one version of ‘Sorge*’ streams for 12 hours on http://unbewusst.love
You can order ‘Sorge*’ via Bandcamp here.
Declaring the phenomena of a one-perfect-version as a scam, Film 2 reports back with an album as a piece of meditation, named ‘Sorge*’. Between concern and caution, worrying and caring, it depicts a state of calmness and vibration in the midst of an overwhelmingly complex chaos, a gentle good-bye to an outdated home.
‘Sorge*’ will end up on the turntable, not the DJ, not the critic, and certainly not the band. It’s an invitation to entangle authorship, work, and originality, to challenge intuition, coincidence, and chance. To praise the shared labour on being emotionally precise, to bury perfectionism deep into the ground and let this three-headed dog sweep over it.
The three young musicians have been playing their way through the Swiss underground, drawing circles between dark cellars and niche festivals like Bad Bonn Kilbi for almost a decade. The explosive concerts full of brute emotionality, reaching from 20-minute-high speed-sets to 4-hour-performan- ces, have always been vital in searching for artistic and social urgency through high-volume sound and collective meditation.
