Doktor Faustus und Neubauten
(5 out of 5 stars)
"1991: Neubauten provides instrumentation for Heiner Müller's stageplay, Die Hamletmaschine. If you have been lucky enough to hear it, and possibly enjoy it, this one still takes some adjusting to, but hang in there!!1996: Faustmusik is from Werner Schwab's "Faust: My Thorax, My Helmet" [don't quote me on that translation!]. Einstürzende Neubauten again make the musik that accompanies the play, whose legendary concept was made famous by Goethe. Blixa Bargeld is actually a character in the play, Mephistopheles [the Devil]. If you know the Faust legend, this recording will be much easier to tolerate, so definitely check up on that before you sit down and try to understand this cd.The most amazing track on this record is "Das Orchestrion." It consists of a nightmare journey through a deserted house, the wanderer [the listener] not knowing how you got there, what to do, or how to get out. [if you hear it you'll know what i mean.] Suddenly the outside door opens, into a stampede of night creatures, whispering indecipherable phrases to you while they run through the dark... then it is over, merging in with a short sweet vocal solo.It's quite a ride, and if you're up for something more original than you've ever heard, Faustmusik is the place to find it: beautiful, terribly frightening.. mythical and enchanting all at once."
