Blood Of A Poet (Le Sang D’Un Poète)
Genre: Dark Ambient, Score, Experimental.
This is founding member of the legendary Siouxsie and the Banshees, Steven Severin’s debut album for Cold Spring Records titled Blood Of A Poet (Le Sang D’Un Poète). This is Steven Severin’s score for the film of the same name and part of his Music For Silents series.
This is his entire interpretation of the soundtrack to Jean Cocteau’s 1930 black & white surrealist cult horror classic and is the second in his ongoing series of “Music For Silents”.
Blood Of A Poet is Filmmaker Jean Cocteau’s cult masterwork from 1932. An abstract collection of dark imagery that’s connected to the feelings within a poet’s heart and soul.
Blood Of A Poet received its premiere at the Silent Movie Theatre in Hollywood in January 2010 since then Severin has gone on to create more unique film scores from films from yesteryear including the amazing Vampyr in 2012.
This is a stunning feast for the ears and a showcase of Severin’s Avant-garde musical talent. This time he’s not going post punk he’s tackling the musical score for the cult flick from Blood Of A Poet (Le Sang D’Un Poète) and for whatever reason it just works. I fell in love with Severin’s unique execution that haunts your very soul and keeps you wanting more, this is an amazing score and works so well when watching the film in the background, a truly underrated masterpiece!.
