Belly of An Architect is a 1987 British-Italian film directed by Peter Greenaway. Its soundtrack is a result of the collaboration between Wim Mertens and Glenn Branca. Greenaway is known for his cynical comedies with a minimal plot, augmented by lush and surreal photography. The Mertens soundtrack fits the story and visuals like a glove with its minimal, neo classical repetitive themes.
