TOUNDRA - Announces the release of an album with the original soundtrack the band composed for 'The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari'
Toundra, the Spanish instrumental prog-rockers, just announced the release of an album with the original soundtrack that they composed for Robert Wiene's classic silent movie 'The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari' from 1920 and that will come out as an album via Century Media records on 28.02.2020.
"The idea of composing a soundtrack has been in our minds since the band's inception, the idea of writing music for images appealed to us like something completely different compared to what musicians normally do. 'The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari' was really stimulating and inspiring, specially from the aesthetic point of view, but not only because of that; while reading about the movie we go to lear that the it uses a terror façade to speak about authoritarianism and how the human can be manipulated into terrible actions, so, considering the in-between-wars period in which it came out, gives it a very contemporary approach that makes us all to think that's importance of rebelling against what uncompromising forces wanna take us to, a fearful place that's way more scary than 'The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari'"
