Wim's - Driven By Music 3LP


Driven By Music – Honoring Wim’s 70th Birthday 

Deluxe 3LP box. Limited to 5000 individually numbered copies.

In his over 45 years as a filmmaker, Wim has been responsible for over fifty cinematic works. Most of his films are genuine ‘road movies’, where the protagonists fly, walk, ride or drive a car, up or down some road, searching what was left behind or seems to lie ahead of them, and as the car’s wheels keep on spinning, so do the records that play that music. This spinning motion in movement and music seems to keep everything and everyone running, even if nobody is moving. All of Wim’s films feature music and show that music is Wim’s motor. Devices that play music are akin to life-saving machines for Wim. 
Celebrating his 70th birthday this year, what better present to get him than a vinyl LP album with musicians and bands that became his and his film’s friends and companions through all the years. 
So we started asking around, who would be joining this compilation album, and in the end 36 musicians contributed. Some of them sent songs that appeared in one of Wim’s films, others composed new tracks to appear on the album. All in all it became a special collection of great music on three vinyl LPs. And as this was made for Wim, the album is called “Wim’s”. 
But you do not just cut one album. We made 5,000 as a limited birthday compilation, so everyone can have their own edition of “Wim’s – Driven by Music”.
