The Whale and the Prince


For the last few days the music from the film Werckmeister Harmonies has been haunting me. Plaintive pianos and violins, and something that sounds like and uileann (sp?!) pipe. The film features a stuffed whale and a demonic prince, neither of whom would be out of place in a classic 70s Herzog film (although you should also check out his 90s films).

I'm mentioning this because a) I'm haunted by this music, and b) this is a more interesting site when people talk about themselves and not about sex. I have nothing at the moment to say about the latter. (Although on the subject of the former I could at least add a total enthusiasm for Kiarostami's Taste of Cherry.)
