The soundtrack to the investigative documentary Asasin in Lege by John Atkinson (of the long-running Brooklyn experimental rock ensemble Aa) is the inaugural release from Florabelle, a New York-based label for experimental music and media founded by Ned Milligan. Debuting on Romanian and Moldovan national TV in November 2014, Asasin in Lege (Killers Inc.) investigates the assassination of an influential Russian businessman, tracing a barely-underground war between Kremlin-connected businessmen and bankers fought with brigades of assassins for hire. The soundtrack's eight instrumental compositions combine field recordings with dense digital textures to establish an atmosphere that is alternately luminous and menacing, giving the sinister proceedings an otherworldly air. The album was mastered by Andrew Weathers (of Full Spectrum Records). Limited to 200 in four-panel gatefold sleeves and comes with a download code.
"Sometimes beautifully distilled in an orchestral way, but then, with a single tone, crushing the moment into pitiful darkness...a great album." - Vital Weekly
