Erotic cult classic set to exclusive live soundtrack

The Antwerp band Condor Gruppe already has a number of top records under their belt. Their last release, 'Interplanetary Travels', was likewise a hit. “Haunting and cinematic, this instrumental work is a cut above the rest", noted online magazine daMusic. New work is set for release in early 2022 – something to look forward to. In the meantime, for VIDEODROOM, the band will focus on François de Roubaix's majestic work for the film 'Daughters of Darkness'. 

Daughters of Darkness' is a surreal, erotic vampire film from 1971, made by the Belgian cult director Harry Kümel. Rather than giving away the plot, we’ll just leave you with a few key words: 'horror', 'blood' and 'sadomasochism'. Our very own ‘Queen of Seaside Resorts’, Ostend, has a major role in the movie. Reviewer and author Geoffrey O'Brien about the film: “If Fassbinder had made a vampire movie it might have looked something like this."

The soundtrack to this film is by François de Roubaix, a self-taught musician and jazz enthusiast. He composed almost a hundred soundtracks, mostly for French films. In 1976 he won a César for best soundtrack with his work on 'Le Vieux Fusil’ – awarded posthumously as de Roubaix had passed away just the year before.  

De Roubaix has always been a great source of inspiration for Condor Gruppe. So they are only too happy to sink their teeth into his dark, hypnotic score. Unique, exclusive show!

“If Fassbinder had made a vampire movie it might have looked something like this.”
