Augustus Muller, one half of Massachusetts electronic duo Boy Harsher, releases two original scores through own label Nude Club records on April 10th. The films, ‘Orgone Theory’ and ‘Hydra,’ are Muller’s first foray into scoring. Both films were produced by UK based collective Four Chambers.
Four Chambers, or A Four Chambered Heart, produces adult material that focuses on DIY practices and non-traditional bodies and narratives. Four Chambers is self-described by creator Vex Ashley as “deliberately ambiguous, rejecting labels for both (the) films and performers, existing in-between genres of both art and pornography and dismissing the need for a definition of either.”
After a successful collaboration between Boy Harsher and Four Chambers, with the film ‘Archetype,’ Vex sought a direct collaboration between Muller. ‘Hydra’ is a short, sci-fi experience studying invasion and consumption. Muller’s score delves into the film’s dystopian attitude, utilising eerie industrial tones and wet synthesisers.
The second short, ‘Orgone Theory’, takes a more dogmatic approach: sexual scenarios confined within a metal box simulating the Wilhelm Reich’s orgone accumulator. In Orgone, Muller embraces more of a rhythmic preposition, referencing the film’s dynamic subject matter and alluding early work by Patrick Crowley.
Hear “Taste of Metal” (from 'Hydra'):
Hear “Arrival” (from 'Orgone Theory':
There’s no need to confine the score to particular genres, yet for context - within these tracks, Muller combines disparate soundscapes, melancholy drone, and minimal synth.
‘Machine Learning Experiments (Original Soundtrack)’ will be released as one single full length on digital, CD, and vinyl 12” on April 10th, 2020, by Nude Club. Pre-order it BELOW.
