Description

Bronnt Industries Kapital - TURKSIB

Turksib is the fourth long player from Bristol-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Guy Bartell, AKA Bronnt Industries Kapital. The album marks Bronnt’s first full length release since 2009’s Hard For Justice (released on Berlin’s Get Physical Records), praised as a “pumped up and muscle-shirted Eurodisco epic” by The Wire.

Turksib is taken from Bartell’s soundtrack to the acclaimed Russian film of the same name (1929, dir. Viktor Turin), commissioned by the British Film Institute and released as the centrepiece of The Soviet Influence: From Turksib to Nightmail, a collection of films looking at the influence of Soviet propaganda on British filmmaking.

Turksib explores the clash of man, nature and machine in the building of the massive Siberia - Turkestan railway (one of the great achievements of the first Soviet Five Year Plan) through one of the most inhospitable deserts in the world, and is a picture of the civilisation of man versus the savagery of stark nature. Bronnt’s soundtrack takes a similarly epic sonic journey, pitching the metrical, electrical roar of industrialisation against the primitive folk drones and interwoven melodies of the natural order.
