**2021 Repress** Shukai is psyched to announce our second release - music for the animated television film Alice Through the Looking Glass, which has never been released before. The music was recorded in 1981 and the film was broadcasted on Soviet television in 1982.
Alice Through the Looking Glass was created by Kyivnauchfilm studio and directed by Efim Pruzhansky is a colour animated film based on the novel by Lewis Carroll.
Volodymyr Bysrtiakov is a Soviet analogue of French Vladimir Cosma or Italian Ennio Morricone. Great soundtrack composer whose most active years were '80-90s when he worked at the Kyivnauchfilm studio which audio department was like the British BBC Radiophonic Workshop at those times.
The soundtrack for the animated film Alice Through the Looking Glass is an attempt to create a psychedelic electroacoustic piece with victorian flavour. The film animation style is similar to Terry Gilliam’s Monty Python cartoon clips.
