Gudrun Gut – Gut Soundtrack
„The music for my mini-series comprises of newly created music during filming, original tracks, new mixes, and later edited material.
The work on the film developed so associatively that I quickly realized that the music had to be similarly spontaneous. This resulted in many improvisations that fit the rhizomic and random style of the mini-documentary series.
I created some layouts directly during the filming, e.g. the track Nostaglie/Accordion was later developed from the live recording. Of course, it's also about memories, about nostalgia, about how I discovered the accordion as a teenager. I played around with many small instruments - analog and electronic - and really made use of my collection. I remixed older tracks such as "How Can I Move" or "Bist Du Schon Weg". The version of 'Kaltes, Klares Wasser' is new, namely from the rehearsals for the live performance of Mücken/Moskitos in 2021, where Bettina Köster and Manon Pepita were of course also present.
Some of the music is taken directly from the series, such as fragments of the small Monotron set in the park or part of the Monika Werkstatt concert in the garden with Pilocka Krach and Midori Hirano.
Short sketches, musical jokes, hard breaks are closely linked to each other to create a good (gut) flow.“
GUT - A mini-series
Gudrun Gut, who was part of Malaria!, Matador, Mania D., various collaborations and solo projects, dares to take on a new, untried challenge in her 40-year career: a mini-documentary series about herself. As co-director, leading actress and composer, she invites you to her country estate in the Uckermark region, 100 miles northeast of Berlin. Here she takes on the challenging task of bringing her own life to the screen. Gradually, a profound portrait emerges of a woman who has held her own in a male-dominated industry and never lost sight of her own artistic vision. "Gut" not only provides an impressive insight into the fascinating world of an extraordinary artist who courageously explores the unknown, but is also a tribute to the female power of creativity and the love of music and nature.
Episode 1 The Blank Page. In the first episode of "GUT," everything revolves around the mysterious blank page that means so much to artists. A Boat trip at moonlight with Thomas Fehlmann, a foto session with Mara von Kummer, and the surprise guest Ben Becker.
Episode 2 MMM. In the second episode the letter M takes center stage: Music, Mother, Malaria, and the mysterious Monotron. Gudrun composes the soundtrack for her series, everything turns into a pink dream. In the studio with her bandmates Manon Pepita and Bettina Köster.
Episode 3 The Sourdough. In the final episode, Gudrun turns her attention to the everyday, the routines, the laundry, and the bread. Here, an artistic ode to the freedom hidden in the seemingly ordinary unfolds. The visit of musicians Pilocka Krach and Midori Hirano culminates in a garden performance with Monika Werkstatt. A delicate symphony of the everyday, the essence of art and community resides.
