Architects Office - Caswallon The Headhunter (LP, Silent Records SR 8602, 1986)

I guess this band is best known for working with experimental film maker Stan Brakhage. There is a video (not DVD, I guess) with four short films from him, and music by Architects Office. I believe Joel Haertling was the main man, but the membership was always quite open. I never knew what 'Caswallon The Headhunter' was about, it some kind of electronic opera, but it sounds nice. Spoken word, not so much to the foreground, collage and electronic music.

The Criterion Collection's DVD "by Brakhage" actually has a few Brakhage films with a soundtrack by Architects Office.
