On Germaine Dulac is the debut LP by Belgian musician Mathieu Serruys. B.A.A.D.M. commissioned Serruys to revisit Germaine Dulac, female pioneer of the early experimental film. Loosely inspired by moods, scenes and sceneries of La Coquille et le Clergyman (1928), Serruys creates a sound spectrum that reflects the bewildered states of mind that mark her avant-garde masterpiece.
Atmospheres range from fierce monumentality to delicate emotions, evoked by eroded textures and brittle two-tone melodies. Maltreatments of broken tape recorders, instable sound constructions and instant technical seizures mirror the shaken universe of distorted cinema.
On Germaine Dulac is the result of a surprising confrontation between disciplines and collocutors separated in time and space.
