‘Scores III’ is a collaboration between RE:VIVE (The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision) and Dekmantel. I was commissioned the composition of a new score with a short film and had the amazing opportunity to work with their extensive archive, focusing on nature-related material.
Scores III was released digitally on all platforms and on vinyl.
«On the B-Side, Italian abstract artist and Dutch native Guenter Råler concocts a deeply introspective, and perfectly choreographed, ambient soundtrack to a select series of pieced together clips from the Collectie Natuurbeelden, [the Institute’s Collection of Natural Images]. The music plays against the depiction of multiple biological communities in transition; what is referred to as an ecotone. The title itself not only recalls that of a musical tone, but represents the ever-evolving aspect of life and nature as similar colours, along with movements of animals and plants pass on from one image to the next.»
