Kagel's Kinema

Friday, 22 April 2011

The late Argentinian Mauricio Kagel (24 December 1931 – 18 September 2008) is one of my favourite musical composers, who also created film. I was aware of his strange and unsettling 1969 full-length feature Ludwig Van, about Beethoven, but didn't know he also made a series of rather strange shorts from the 1960s onwards. The combination of bizarre sounds and visuals are most satisfying, and they can be seen at the always amazing UBU labyrinth here.
