Pretty into Werner Nekes lately, although I see there's a learning curve ahead. Here are some film stills. "Hynningen" and "Makimono," two early-70s meditations on Finnish landscape, are totally captivating. A lot of these films feature music by Anthony Moore. Here's the lovely foresty blissout drone poem from the end of "Makimono."
And here's Moore's trippy guitar interlude from Nekes' "Abbandano" in 1970. The music on this one is the best of the lot -- experimental but quite moving and beautiful. Here's a link to the full score of about 30 minutes or so. Recommended.
