An album from Khan (*) through Caipirinha (*), loosely drawing inspiration from early 20th century silent movies.

I wish I had found some info on this project, but there doesn't seem to be anything around and the CD's leaflet stays totally uninformative. Some of the films I know, for the others I'm still guessing. The project unfolds in two parts; the first one ('Berlin') is a brooding, very minimalistic techno affair, borrowing its mood from early german expressionism films like 'The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari' or directors like Max Reinhard. The second part ('Hollywood') moves more into scarce electro beats and experimental breaks territory, mentioning Kenneth Anger and Carmen Miranda.
