    Man Of Marble

    [engl] Opening further doors in the sprawling labyrinth of unreleased music by Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski, Finders Keepers Records present the soundtrack to the 1977 Polish film Man Of Marble by ‘national filmmaker’ and long-term collaborator Andrzej Wajda. Presented for the first time ever on vinyl (featuring exclusive unreleased bonus tracks) this synthesiser fuelled soundtrack marks a distinct stylistic manoeuvre towards a unique brand of Polish cosmic disco, celebrating the cinematic debut of Korzynski’s Arp-Life project - widely respected as Poland’s first “synthesiser orchestra.” Begging direct comparison to Russia’s Zodiac and sharing an uncanny resemblance to other 1970s European post rock cinematic disco bands like France’s Arpadys (formerly Jean-Claude Vannier’s Insolitudes) or the later projects of Italy’s Goblin (such as Discocross) this soundtrack witnesses Korzynski and Arp-Life at their halcyon; making fantastical and experimental musical approximations of the burgeoning synth funk disco boom which had erupted on the other side of the Iron Curtain. Man Of Marble unearths Korzynski’s first steps into electronic dance music, and with the addition of bonus tracks from the 1981 sequel Man Of Iron, provides the perfect companion piece to his recently liberated score to Possession (directed by Andrzej Zuławski) which blends the same ingredients through another darker corridor of this versatile composer’s creative mind. Accompanying our release of the first anthology of rare Korzynski archive material Secret Enigma (FKR055), the aforementioned Possession (FKR062) and Third Part Of The Night (FKR063) soundtracks, Man Of Marble provides further glimpses into a deeper archive of electronic pop. This release captures prime- era Korzynski as a forward- thinking keyboard artist and experimentalist who managed to move with global musical and technological trends under the stifling communist regime while still displaying compositional versatility polarised by Poland’s most famous and infamous national directors.

    Possession

    [engl] As our maiden voyage into an expansive vat of unreleased music by Polish com- poser Andrzej Korzynski, Finders Keepers Records presents his previously unre- leased electro/orchestral/experimental score for Andrzej Zulawski's surrealist 80s horror classic, Possession. These 25 cues were written and recorded exclusively for the 1981 award-winning film starring Isabelle Adjani and Sam Neil, but due to the progressive, stark and modernist nature of the finished film less than half of them made it on to the actual director’s cut - leaving many of the tracks on this package totally unheard outside of Korzynski’s studio. The intended Possession score in its entirety marks an important axis in Korzynski’s career where his various musical disciplines overlap. In one respect it marks his first forays into to synth driven electronics and disco drum machines, while other tracks epitomise the well honed techniques used in previous Zulawski scores, such as Third Part Of The Night and The Devil, which rely on his inimitable orchestral arrangements and combination of clavinet, Rhodes, piano and electric guitar. This is the first time any of this music has been released outside of the films origi- nal context and is packaged on CD, 12" vinyl and conceptual green compact cas- settes housed in miniature clamshell cases reminiscent of the films original VHS release that briefly adorned UK video shops in the early 1980s (before being banned by over excited censors as one of the unproscecuted ‘video nasties' in the infamous 1983 tape cull). The important restoration of Korzynski's music aims to shed new light on the seldom manufactured productions of the composer whose vast cinematic catalogue warrants overdue global status alongside other golden era Eastern European composers such as Kryzstof Komeda, Jan Hammer and Zdenek Liska - not to mention the best of the French and Italian soundtrackers, such as Roubaix, Vannier and Nicolai. Duplicated and carefully remastered directly from Korzynski's original master tapes this album boasts the uninhibited studio experiments and retains the pre-cut ambi- ence as an exclusive archival forerunner to our expanded selection of Korzynski releases later in 2012.
