About the soundtrack
This soundtrack is the equivalent to a quadruple vinyl box set. It was composed for the legendary and infamous film ‘Häxan - Witchcraft through the ages’. The film was banned in the USA and heavily censored in other countries when first released in 1922.
The way in Häxan investigates superstition, mysticism, paranoia, conspiracy theories, misogyny, prejudice, manipulation and exploitation eerily captures and exposes what in essence is the same poison that has been re-released, transposed and commoditised by ‘social media’ in the mass psychology of the here and now in the 21st century.
Häxan was one of the first drama- documentaries, integrating fact, fiction, objective reality, investigation, delusion and hallucination. The film's mixture of narrative methods is astonishing for its freedom and audacity. Film Director Benjamin Christensen's uninhibited and experimental style endeared Häxan to the Surrealists: it's transfused with humour: a witches' brew of the horrific, gross, and darkly comedic.
