Terrific — half originals, half Ukrainian, Hungarian and Romanian folk re-worked under the spell of Paradjanov’s marvellous film Shadows Of Forgotten Ancestors. Raptly melodious, thunderous, super-charged.
You Have Already Gone To The Other World (2013) is A Hawk and a Hacksaw's sixth studio album with the subtitle "Music inspired by Paradjanov's Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors". It is a concept album which is written as a retrospective soundtrack for the 1964 movie Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors by Sergei Parajanov.
The album is a concept album, it is arranged as a soundtrack for an already existing movie. Eight tracks are Eastern Europe folk songs from Hungary, Ukraine and Romania which are partly sampled from the movie and newly interpreted and arranged by Barnes and Trost. They also composed new music for the movie and played live along the movie in cinemas and theatres in 2012.
