Luna llena #7
Etüde um Der Blaue Engel
The idea of selecting The Blue Angel (Der blaue engel) by Josef von Sternberg is because it was the first sound film to receive an almost universal critical approval as such, it was released on April 1, 1930.
Marlene Dietrich reached stardom by co-starring with then-famous Emil Jannings, her daring role as the Lola-Lola cabaret that leads to the destruction of a respectable teacher caused international sensation; especially because she sang insinuating lyrics displaying her thighs at a time when commercial cinema was very prudish and more or less erotic films circulated only clandestinely. In 1933 The blue angel would be banned in Germany by the Nazi regime.
The sound records have been taken to deconstruct them as a piece of concrete music divided into two pieces, and created respectively by ea7_dmZ and Johannes de Silentio.
