ABC is an album by electronica group Kreidler, released in 2014. It marks the 20th anniversary of the band.


Cover artwork

The front-cover depicts an (untitled) artwork by Georgian artist Thea Djordjadze. The back-cover shows stills of the group's recording session in Tbilisi shot by Heinz Emigholz. The inner sleeve (vinyl version) depicts another (untitled) artwork by Djordjadze; the CD is packed in a jewel case with the artworks on two changeable cardboards.

Music videos

Similar to the previous two albums of Kreidler ABC is accompanied by a collaboration with a film director. Lior Shamriz contributed clips to four of the songs of ABC.

The videos for "Alphabet", "Destino" and "Ceramic" conjoin to a love story between three boys on a beach. In Tornado an off-voice speaks about the strange encounter of an architect with a billionaire to a black screen, when the music sets in the picture stars flickering (the spoken word section The Cultural Attaché isn't part of the original song).

"The Cultural Attaché /Tornado" was awarded with 2nd prize in the MuVi competition of 62. International Short Film Festival Oberhausen. According to the jury, "... we thought this video presented an interesting start to negating some of the more conventional music video tropes".

Film: 2+2=22 (THE ALPHABET)

Additionally there is a video for "Modul" by Heinz Emigholz. He accompanied the band during their recordings in Tbilisi, Georgia, shooting footage for 2+2=22 (THE ALPHABET) a film scheduled for release in 2017. With "Modul" as the trailer for the film.
