Tom Waits, no stranger to scoring original movies and scores, has created Blood Money. Based on the socio/political play “Woyzeck,” originally written by a young German poet Georg Buchner as a spare, cinematic piece in 1837 and inspired by the true story of a German soldier who was driven mad by bizarre army medical experiments and infidelity, which led him to murder his lover. Waits and Brennan wrote songs for an avant-garde production of “Woyzeck” directed by Robert Wilson.
“Written as theatrical scores, these records bloom on their own. They are also testaments to Waits’ gift for making tangible magic from odd clatter: dusky strings, mooing horns, ancient keyboards. The atmospheres around his voice are so vivid you feel like you‘re there with him“- Rolling Stone
