Editorial Reviews

Peter Strickland's Berberian Sound Studio has emerged as one of the most critically acclaimed indie films of the year, The film's sublime soundtrack, composed by Broadcast (aka Trish Keenan and James Cargill), before Trish's untimely passing last year, sets a sinister and atmospheric tone that still exists well within Broadcast's sonic universe.

Format: Audio CD
'Berberian Sound Studio,' which contains Broadcast's soundtrack work for the recent Peter Strickland film of the same name (and which was composed and partially recorded before singer Trish Keenan's death in 2011), is a rather strange and unique--even scary--listening experience that recalls the band's collaboration with the Focus Group from a few years ago. It's more of a musical collage than an actual album, with 39 "songs" stuffed into its 38 minutes, producing a myriad of sounds and moods, and resulting in an extremely kaleidoscopic listen.

Much like their work with the Focus Group, these songs are heavily influenced by 60's and 70's European "library music" (music made cheaply available for use in TV shows and movies), especially the minimalist, retro/futuristic type used in the weird French and Italian art-house films from the era. The music in the 70's British TV show 'Space 1999,' for those interested, is a pretty apt comparison to the style found here, and a good example of the kind of library music Trish Keenan and James Cargill are influenced by, as that show used some of the same composers--sometimes even the exact same compositions--that those cult movies used.

But this soundtrack is so much more than just an homage. The music here needs to be experienced as a whole, imo, as each song blends seamlessly into the next, producing a vibe that is at times mysterious and ominous, at times blissful, and at times just-plain-horrifying. These tracks are mostly surrealistic mood pieces, with lots of drones and effects, no real lyrics, and seemingly very little structure, but songs like the hypnotic, eerie-yet-soothing "The North Downs Dimension" and the classic Broadcast, "60's futuristic" lounge-pop of "The Equestrian Vortex" are no less absorbing because of that.

“Berberian Sound Studio” is a soundtrack which features the last known tracks Broadcast recorded. But beware, Broadcast fans- with thirty-nine tracks at under thirty-eight minutes and quite a bit of that containing dialog and sounds from the film, these are basically fragments of Broadcast with no real songs per se. Having said that, the disc is enjoyable to listen to, particularly if you’re into the avant-garde genre, dig eclectic soundtracks, and/or you’re a Broadcast completist. When taken in context with their previous effort “Broadcast and The Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age”, their direction seemed headed toward short, collage-like pieces.

I already miss Trish Keenan and the wonderful sonic world she created with partner James Cargill.

Seek out their other mysterious recordings! The sad passing of a band member makes this their final statement. For the adventurous ear!
