The Music of Pipilotti Rist's Pepperminta

Pipilotti Rist is one of Europe's most renowned contemporary artists. Educated in commercial art, illustration, photography and audio-visual communications, she has been working as an artist since 1986. Rist has created a vast oeuvre of video/audio works that has been shown internationally in many solo exhibitions at important museums, such as the MoMA and the Centre Pompidou. Pepperminta is Rist's first motion picture, introducing a young lady, Pepperminta, who has set out to free humanity from bad moods and everyday routines. Amiably and naughtily she pursues her fantastic campaign against fear. Colour is the miraculous weapon of 'Pepperminta' and her allies that brings everything to life. The artist and musician Anders Guggisberg and the musician, sound designer and DJ Roland Widmer have written and recorded the soundtrack for Pepperminta . Soft sounds and spurring rhythms, licking, clattering and knocking noises, tingling and rattling make the cheerful and exhilarating acoustic background to the colourful images. This small book includes an audio-CD with the original soundtrack of the film and features 25 catchy double-page colour film stills, brief texts introducing the film and the music, and a short interview with Pipilotti Rist.
