Krach – Verzerrte Erinnerungen

Autobiografie und Memoire

Krach ist Autobiografie und Memoire eines Ausnahmemusikers und Zeitzeugen der Berliner Untergrund-Musik-, Kunst und Filmszene.

Vom genialen Dilettanten, der die Schule hinschmiss, um seinen Traum zu leben, hin zum Ausnahme-Autodidakten, der als Musiker und als Komponist von Filmmusik in der Hochkultur angekommen ist, ohne seine Lust auf Neues und Abwegiges aufzugeben – so ließe sich die Karriere von Alexander Hacke in einem Satz umschreiben.

The Cut

Soundtrack By Alexander Hacke

’The Cut’ ist ein Soundtrack, der meine Emotionen und Gedanken, die ich mit dem Film verbinde, musikalisch ausdrückt. Die Musik hat den Film von der ersten Drehbuchfassung bis zur Fertigstellung begleitet und gestaltet. Alexander Hackes ’The Cut’ ist ein stolzer Western- Soundtrack, der sich vor der Arbeit Ennio Morricones verbeugt, gleichzeitig völlig innovativ und neu klingt. ’The Cut’ ist das Opus Magnum des Alexander Hacke.“ Fatih Akin über die Filmmusik von Alexander Hacke

Alexander Hacke's music for THE CUT, the new movie by Fatih Akin will be released Oct 17, 2014 by Hamburg label Bureau B.
