Hiroshima Mon Amour

Composed as a part of the project “Transglobal Exodus Complex” – Chapter ASIA FILES, this new track plays with various motives of the “Far East” fantasy and resumes [dunkelbunt]s earlier sampling and turntablism experiments.

The reference to the feature film of the same name and to the topic of atomic bombing was at first rather associative: The theme of yearning for a different, “Oriental” world is reflected in the bitter-sweet violins (erhu), in the percussive plucked strings and in the song line recorded by the singer Lisa Cantabile: “Ne me quitte pas, mon Amour”.

Due to the deliberately associative production process and in the context of current DJ mixes such as “Bass of Asia” and “Bass of India”, the track “Hiroshima Mon Amour” is a further step within [dunkelbunt]s exploration of the topics “Asia” and “Far East”. It includes dark aspects such as civilization collapse and climate change into the musical imagination. Daniel Krammer’s artwork, which was carried out in the [dunkelbunt]-studio, integrates these apocalyptic vibes, but remains – just like the leisurely shuffling track – confident and serene.

He has a degree in Piano and Keyboard Instruments at the University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna.

[dunkelbunt] + Band is a internationally successful live act in the genres „World“, „Transglobal Club Music“, „Dub“, „Balkan Beats“ and „Electro Swing“.

Hiroshima Mon Amour

Der im Rahmen der Arbeit am “Transglobal Exodus Complex” – Chapter ASIA FILES – entstandene Track spielt mit verschiedenen Motiven der Fernost-Sehnsucht und stellt eine Wiederaufnahme von [dunkelbunt]s früheren Sampling- und Turntablism-Experimenten dar.

Der Bezug zum gleichnamigen Spielfilm und zum Thema des Atombombenabwurfs war zunächst eher assoziativ: Das Thema der Sehnsucht nach einer anderen, fernöstlichen Welt spiegelt sich in den süß-schwermütigen Geigen (Erhu), in den perkussiv gezupften Strings sowie in der von der Sängerin Lisa Cantabile eingespielten Liedzeile “Ne me quitte pas, mon Amour”.

Gerade durch den bewusst assoziativen Produktionsprozess und im Kontext von aktuellen DJ-Mixes wie “Bass of Asia” und “Bass of India” stellt “Hiroshima Mon Amour” allerdings auch eine Weiterführung und Brechung von [dunkelbunt]s Auseinandersetzung mit “Asien” dar: Mit seinen Anspielungen auf den Film bezieht “Hiroshima Mon Amour” auch Schattenseiten wie Zivilisations-Kollaps, Klimawandel und Krisen in den Schwellenländern in die musikalische Phantasie mit ein. Daniel Krammers – ebenfalls im [dunkelbunt]-Studio entstandene – Titelgrafik integriert diese apokalyptischen Vibes, bleibt dabei jedoch – genau wie der gemächlich shuffelnde Track – zuversichtlich und heiter.
