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.
