Vier Leben (The Four Times), by Michelangelo Frammartino, I/D/CH 2010, 88 Min.

With Nouvelle-Vague vocalist Phoebe Killdeer and Party Dictator Ole Wulfers two successful musicians have teamed up to shake up the music world with experimental electronic music that is inspired by jazz and punk. The impressive videos to their tracks illustrate just how important also the pictorial level is in their collaboration. Visual inspiration for Howling Wolf's music will be the poetic film Le quattro volte (The Four Times) by Michelangelo Frammartino. The film is a lyrical view of the ever-recurring cycle of life and nature.

The artist Phoebe Killdeer was born in Antibes and moved with her family from there to England. Upon her return to London from Africa where she was exposed to Hip Hop during her travels in Zimbabwe and South Africa, Phoebe began her musical career. She made her first big appearance in 2003 as a guest vocalist on the Basement Jaxx album Kish Kash. From 2005 to 2007 Phoebe Killdeer was a member of Nouvelle Vague. As a band member of Party Diktator Ole Wulfers did a Peel session at BBC London and has participated in numerous bands and performance groups all over the world. He worked in collaboration with experimental electronics helsinki and cirkuljia Ljubljana where he investigated the correlation between fluid dynamics and sounds of stressed materials. In early 2016, Ole Wulfers and Phoebe Killdeer have released a first joint album under the band name Phoebe Killdeer & The Shift.

The feature film Le quattro volte by Michelangelo Frammartino is probably one of the quietest and most contemplative in film history. On the surface hardly anything happens, and yet one is witness to life itself, of becoming and passing away. Frammartino is not concerned with man, but rather with the various "reincarnations" that he undergoes. Le quattro volte radiates a great inner peace, which stimulates to ponder, to meditate on the primal life in nature and thus about the meaning of the creature altogether.
