Nick Cave and Warren Ellis -White Lunar (2009)

Zealot Films

The Girls of Phnom Penh (2009), Matthew Watson’s film investigating Cambodia’s “virginity trade”, describes a sorority of three young sex workers, struggling with degradation and poverty against Cave and Ellis’ urgent sound-scape of humid loops, serrated cymbals and geysers of steam. Accompanying the soundtracks on the second disc are four pieces drawn from the Cave & Ellis archives, all named after craters: “Magma” is constructed from a chorus of Warren’s singing a pitch-shifted riff, “Zanstra” swarms like a storm of hornets besieging a submarine, “Halo” finds pastoral calm in the eager teeth of defeat and “Daedalus” rises sure as the sun, with dewy flute and fluttering piano motes, before a sudden fade. The sequence is conceived as a suite. “Listen to it as you might listen to an instrumental album” recommends Ellis, as “some kind of trip”.
