Tomorrow (5/1): Wrekmeister Harmonies Score Haxan

CIMMfest 2014 – Wrekmeister Harmonies live score: "Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages" I Verma I Dark Fog– The Chicago International Movies & Music Festival 
CIMMFest - Double Door - Thursday, May 1 - 8:00 PM (Doors) / 9:00 PM (Show)  -  21 +

Wrekmeister Harmonies, the brainchild of sound artist and filmmaker JR Robinson, has been animate since 2006. This experimental sound installation, with its beautiful and dusky visuals intermingled with ambient composition, is a fabricated experience that can only be described as beautiful and haunting. This special festival performance is accompanied by the film "Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages,” a 1922 Swedish/Danish silent horror film written and directed by Benjamin Christensen. 


Verma is bent equally on bristling psychedelic squall and driving motorik that constructs and explores cinematic sonic landscapes, rooted in the dark and hypnotic.

Dark Fog opens with intense, guitar-driven crunch sublimates into reverb-drenched ruminations as this duo blends garage, space rock, shoegaze, and psych.
