The Mistress of Dark Ambient, Experimental Sound Art, Zeena Schreck, releases her first solo recording project. Limited signed & numbered edition of only 89, offered to pre-order now, before official release date of March 11, 2020!
Zeena's latest sound art project comes at a fitting time, as we enter into a new era of twenty-first century "Roaring 20's," waxing into centennial anniversaries and celebrations of Germany's Weimar Republic art movements and UFA Film's golden age of Expressionist films. A long time in the making, 'Bring Me The Head Of F.W. Murnau: A Ghost Story in Six Acts,' was inspired by news reports on July 15, 2015, that the director's head had been stolen from his grave under mysterious circumstances:"That day, as I learned of this odd occurrence, I hearkened back to my 1990 recording 'Bring Me The Head Of Geraldo Rivera,' under the auspices of my former band Radio Werewolf. The calling to create a similarly titled sequel seemed obvious." --Zeena Schreck

The tone poems in this recording are sonic necromancy, reflecting the transition from the end of Murnau's worldly life to what his disembodied consciousness may have experienced in the afterlife. Many of the intricate sounds heard in these tracks were captured in field recordings at Murnau's former residence in Berlin and at his grave site in Stahnsdorf, Germany. The presence of the cinematic Master is perceived most effectively when listening to the tracks altogether, in sequential order, preferably with eyes closed and/or lights out.
All music and vocals composed and performed by Zeena Schreck, with the exception of drums by Hisham A. Bharoocha on track 4, “Tabu”.
Format: Extended Play CD with digipak cover and four-color, four-page, side-pocket insert. A signed and numbered limited edition of 89 CDs (the number of years from FW Murnau's death to the CD release date) is offered, in addition to normal shrink-wrapped, non-signed open edition.
Cover art: Original mixed media painting created especially for this sound art project by Ben Vaughn Zeitlin; concept by Zeena Schreck.
