Kristin Asbjornsen's Factotum
2-Sep-2006 - From Milan Records comes the score for Factotum. This drama centers on Hank Chinaski, the fictional alter-ego of "Factotum" author Charles Bukowski, who wanders around Los Angeles, trying to live off jobs which don't interfere with his primary interest, which is writing. Along the way, he fends off the distractions offered by women, drinking and gambling. The film's music is composed by the singer Kristin Asbjørnsen. She performs the music together with her band Dadafon, plus Tord Gustavsen, Jarle Bernhoft and Yvind Brandtsegg among others. Kristin is one of the leading singers in the Scandinavian jazz scene. Layered over Asbjørnsen's magical, sad and poignant music, she performs two poems by Bukowski: "Slow day" and "I wish to weep." The soundtrack also contains two more songs based on poems by Bukowski.
