"The funky, seedy, bow-chicka-bow music of '70s porn films has become a cultural touchstone — even for generations too young to recall a time when people watched X-rated movies in theaters.
Not much of the genre's music has survived into the Digital Age, however. Which makes Klaus Harmony, Germany's foremost erotic film composer, a standout. His oeuvre is available for download at http://www.klausharmony.com/.
Known in niche circles as the Mozart of Porn, Harmony's brassy — dare we say it? horn-driven — film funk helped motor the narrative of such Dutch porn classics as "Who Needs Dialogue?" and "The Ladies Man." He was killed in a mysterious London record store explosion in 1984.
A Harmony biopic, "A Touch of Klaus," is in the offing. And Britney Spears, to name one high-profile Harmony fan, has boasted of keeping her iPod stocked with the composer's songs — compositions with titles such as "Get Off Marta, I Don't Dig You," "Gay Showers Punch Up Montage" and "Cycling Teens in Love" — that pack a visceral punch even before you hear them." Chris Lee, LA Times, February 2007
"Although you may not have heard of this German composer he was, this website claims, "the Mozart of porn". Klaus was certainly prolific, scoring such 1970s erotic masterpieces as The Ladies Man, Elektrische Lippen and Who Needs Dialogue? as well as the classic Wundercrotchen. According to the biography here Klaus "thrust the genre beyond its known limits until his disappearance in an unexplained explosion during a visit to a second-hand music store in London's East End". It certainly sounds plausible but some people on the internet - including the know-it-alls at Wikipedia - believed this moustache-sporting playboy is a spoof. Ridiculous." Johnny Dee, The Guardian, November 2007
"Having trouble lubricating the ears of that special someone’s ears in your life in their ears? Let Klaus Harmony smooth the rusty cogs of your sonic seduction techniques with his sticky songs – your stinking cesspit of conditioned subordination will be transformed into a palatial pimpo pad thanks to his seasoned understanding of music’s notes, people’s bits, and the nuances of how to mush them all up in the middle. Make sure and scream “Die sexorcist! Die sexcorcist!” just as it all comes crashing together. The cars that is. Klaus, you’ve spoilt us, but we’ve spoilt the nice lady’s sheets, HERE."
