about

Based on the eponymous play by brothers and author/performer team Mike and Tobi Müller at Schauspielhaus Zürich, Swiss experimental documentary film A1 traverses through time and space along Switzerland’s first and most elongated highway structure. Rich in archival sources, it sheds light on the costs and benefits of rapid movement: social, migratory and ecological patterns, economic and military designs that are mostly not immediately obvious to the casual motorist.

Stefan Goldmann’s soundtrack engages the film’s multi-layered aesthetics full on, providing a dazzling array of short-form compositions. Profoundly synthetic in production, this free-wheeling phantasmagoria of peculiar, yet intensely likeable miniatures branches off into a multitude of directions – from minimalistic to overflowing, calm to banging, nightmarish to soothing. The visual patina of historic documents is playfully mirrored in intense distortion and noise artifacts, bound into rhythmic units and melodies formed of ghost notes.

For longer versions of some of the tracks, please check the 12" release A1 Tools (Macro M50X).
