Album Review: PC Nackt – Der Einzige und sein Eigentum

The Breakdown


This music is a memory of an experience, a dream, open to speculation, a fleeting moment to close your eyes and see the beauty with your ears, an invitation to own time and choose your perspective on the crystal of possibilities. It is a zooming into the perspective of a creator – an encouragement to touch the microstructures of the world and form something big out of something small, to make waves. It’s an opportunity to shape things and redefine meaning. It is a zooming out of manifestos in order to strip the lion skin off the donkey and celebrate the fertilising harmony of chaos. – PC Nackt

The multiple Grammy-nominated post-genre composer, performance artist, multi-instrumentalist and producer is co-founder of the electropunk band WARREN SUICIDE, the orchestra THE STRING THEORY, the recording studio CHEZ CHÉRIE and the band RAISON with Schorsch Kamerun, with whom he has been staging musical theatre at opera houses and theatres since 2015. With his eclectic projects, as a solo artist and as a collaborator (including José Gonzáles, Apparat, Hans Unstern, Dieter Meier), Nackt has released many recordings and played concerts at festivals (including Glastonbury, UK), in concert halls (including the Royal Albert Hall, London) and in clubs (including the Apollo Theatre, New York) around the globe. At the same time, Nackt has composed music for cinema (including Wim Wenders, Drake Doremus), TV and streaming platforms (including Netflix‘s „Dark“, „Breaking Bad“), theatre (including Sebastian Hartmann, Jossi Wieler) and orchestras (including the Bremen Philharmonic Orchestra, Kharkiv Orchestra). His work has received numerous awards (including the American Independent Music Award, Best Soundtrack Cannes, Theatertreffen 2023) and chart placements. His record label for stage music.

Stage music exists outside of formats. Seemingly genre-free, music in the theatre enjoys a unique freedom that is tenderly explored with imagination and passion. This results in unconventional compositions and sounds whose emotional impact is surprisingly familiar and independent. However, as stage music is part of a Gesamtkunstwerk, it is often overlooked and not consciously heard. Distracted by the wealth of impressions, the audience completely misses the genius and emotional depth of some works and their creators. Therefore, Grammy-nominated composer/producer PC Nackt and publisher Sophia Blume (Bosworth / Edition PostgenrePublishingChristensen) are launching the record label for stage music, Naked Records. Naked Records puts the music at the center of attention and celebrates its composers. Through the focus of an album release, the artists are invited to reshape their works with a self-image for pure listening. In this way, audience and music can encounter each other intimately, music fans can awaken a desire for the theatre, theatregoers can experience the sensuality of the pieces they have seen in a new way. Naked Records is releasing a Deutsche Theatre Berlin trilogy for its launch. Three soundtracks of award-winning productions of Deutsches Theatre, three theatre evenings in which directors and composers have together dared to blur the boundaries between spoken theatre and concert. Works that develop a special power through this symbiosis and fascinate the audience.

The perfect prelude for the label to enrich both, the theatrical and musical cosmos.

Verdict: A wonderful second installment of a three part release. a super combination of Piano, vocals and a touch of sonic experimentation. As with the first release, it cements the fact that music compositions used to enrich a Theatre production should have the chance to be be heard away from the stage, and appreciated in their own right. While side ‘A’ focuses more on the vocal performances from the collection, side ‘B’ is a three part instrumental swirling piano dream of wonder that leaves you in awe. Waiting in anticipation for the third release.
