Back in 2021, Fuck Buttons’ Benjamin John Power is back with his solo project Blanck Mass and has released a new album called In Ferneaux. Now he has shared a new album called Ted K which is out now digitally and it is out on vinyl in June via Sacred Bones. It is the original score of Tony Stone directed film, Ted K.

Listen below and read the full story.

According to the press release, Recording during lockdown at his studio in Edinburgh, Scotland, Blanck Mass’s Ben Power was in the perfect setting for a musical piece intended to capture the isolation central to Kaczynski’s story. Power was also working with a director in a time zone 10 hours behind and thus many sessions required working in the middle of the night, which added a fitting intensity to the composition process. He said of the project “I wanted it to feel like an ‘epic’” and drew on the legends Sergio Leone and Ennio Morricone for inspiration in encapsulating the energy of the perceived good vs. evil.

The gentle madness of sound achieved is exquisite and slowly builds in intensity and desperation as the score moves along. Power is able to perfectly capture the complexity, the terror and the deep emotionality of the film while presenting an often breathtakingly beautiful and always masterful album that stands on its own as a work of art.
