A new album Film Soundtracks and Ideas of the guitar player and composer David Kollar contains a music to the short films of young directors Mikhail Verner and Erik Bošnák. An unique poetic music language and a fragile structure of the delicate melodic motifs create a connecting line of all record. Besides the pure acoustic music the album contains also colourful echoic elements as reciting the text in Russian, different noises, industrial sounds and sometimes also rough rock riffs. Yet a lyric atmosphere, introvert searching and colourful spaces still prevail here. Besides David Kollar also accordion player Peter Katina presents on this album as a musician and an author of two compositions.The films and their music are the confession of one generation of artists who have a similar view of the world and similar opinions about the art function. The KOVEBO Group whose members are Verner, Bošnák and Kollar by their works suggests that the art should not have only entertaining and relaxing character, it should not offer only primary emotions as the consumer culture media underthrust us but on the contrary, it has to raise worrying questions about our own life, to suggest possible fall backs of own existence and to lead to some kind of catharsis if a modern human being is still able to experience it. The films of Verner of Bošnák together with Kollar´s music thereby leave foot marks on the paths that nobody has walked down for a long time because they are muddy, grey and impassable but they bring a liberating sadness and leave beautifully ephemeral feelings in one´s soul. Because of that it is worth to start listening and to get rocked by the moods glowing of this record.
