Metropolis Metropolis is an abbreviated version of the most recent Electronic Music soundtrack for Fritz Lang’s Metropolis (1927) by Jeff Mills. Unlike his first soundtrack where tracks addressed specific segments of the film in a track listing form, which was created and released in 2001, this version is more a symbiotic mix of compositions that proposes a nuanced representation of the plot and storyline. As an electronic symphonic music creation, Mills proposes a few interesting points in the schematics of this album. 1- the positioning and role of the listener as the soundtrack is based on the environment of the scenes, rather than pure transcription, 2 – as a storyline that takes place in the year 2000, the choice of sound elements refer to some future commonality and foresight between the genres of Classical and Electronic music – between man and machine. And 3, in many parts of the soundtrack where sounds are played in unison. This is symbolic of the hopefulness the storyline works towards. Jeff Mills about „Metropolis Metropolis“: Creating music for Fritz Lang’s masterpiece film “Metropolis” over the many year has been and continues to be a great experience. The film is a story about „man vs man“ with the help of a machine. It’s dramatic theme is as relevant now as it was when the filmed debuted in 1927. A film to enjoyed, but also noted and examined. - Jeff Mills
