PRODUKTINFORMATION

Beide Soundtracks auf einer Doppel-CD. Andrew Kidman ist ein australischer Künstler, der als Filmemacher, Maler, Musiker und nicht zuletzt großen Passion für das Surfen in Erscheinung getreten ist. "Litmus" ist der Soundtrack seines Avantgarde-Surt-Films von 1996. Hier wurde zuerst die Musik geschrieben und aufgenommen, erst dann das Drehbuch aufgesetzt, um der Musik und der Stimmung zu entsprechen. Der Film hatte großen Einfluß auf das Board-Design und brachte die Frage: "Ist Surfen Kunst oder Sport?" Singer-Songwriter/Surf. Mit Kidmans Band The Val Dusty Experiment, Galaxie 500, Yothu Yindi and The Screaming Orphans u.v.a.

Litmus, Andrew Kidman's first avant-garde surf film, served as a soulful reaction to the pop-punk progression that dominated the "alternative" mainstream. With the film's visceral and cerebral moodiness, folksy soundtrack, and meditative spirit, critics swooned over surf misfits like Wayne Lynch, Derek Hynd, Tom Curren, and Joel Fitzgerald. Despite the acclaim, the film was not much of a commercial success at the time. The aura of Litmus' soundtrack, however, has found its cultish corner in the surf world. Prior to filming Litmus, Kidman's band, The Val Dusty Experiment, recorded a total of thirty-five songs in one day. Additional contributions from Galaxie 500, Yothu Yindi and The Screaming Orphans diversify the score. Litmus was a defining moment in surf filmmaking -- it sparked an open-minded retro-progressive movement as surfers formed a higher consciousness about the types of boards they were riding and why. Kidman released his second film, Glass Love, ten years later. As with Litmus, the music came first; Kidman felt his songwriting was ready to take on a new life. Thanks in part to Litmus, experimentation in board design progressed as surfers became more contemplative, questioning, 'is surfing art or sport?' Glass Love and its soundtrack highlights this mindset and time period, creating an extra dimension to surfing that is still prevalent today.
