Menuet & GU-film presenteren een film van Kadir Balcı Turquaze - release 29 september 2010


The music for the film Turquaze was composed by Bert Ostyn, singer and writer/composer of the Belgian band Absynthe Minded.

This is Bert´s first film score. For Turquaze he composed both classical music (played by the Spiegel String Quartet) and world music recorded by Osama Abdulrasol (qanun), Tim De Jonghe (trumpet) and Renaud Ghilbert (violin) as well as pop songs (Little Rascal).


The song ´Little Rascal´ will be released as a single in September, accompanied by a video clip composed in part of images from the film. This video clip is also directed by Kadir Balcý.

In the past year Absynthe Minded achieved its real breakthrough with the general public, thanks to the hit single ´Envoi´. Their fourth CD, entitled ´Absynthe Minded´, went platinum. The CD was also recently released in France, where the single ´Envoi´ is a summer hit. Germany will also follow later.
