The Music of Pipilotti Rist's "Pepperminta"
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Book and CD
Distributed for Verlag Scheidegger and Spiess
For more than two decades, Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist has been acclaimed for her works in a variety of media, including film and audio-video installations. Her first venture into full-length motion pictures, Pepperminta, premiered at the 2009 Venice film festival, telling the charming, whimsical story of a young lady who has set out on a quixotic quest to rid humanity of bad moods and dull routine.
The Music of Pipilotti Rist’s “Pepperminta” is a brief, illustrated volume designed to accompany the film and its memorable soundtrack, created by Rist with musician Anders Guggisberg and DJ Roland Widmer. It features full-color reproductions of film stills alongside an interview with Rist and brief texts that set the images and music in context.
