Join Clint Mansell For An Evening Of Uneasy Listening In March 2016

 

Clint Mansell - Please Stand ByIf you’re in Los Angeles or the UK in March would advise you get yourself tickets for Clint Mansell’s Uneasy Listening tour ASAP.

Fans of MOON will be well aware of Clint’s stunning score for Duncan Jone’s debut feature film, an integral part of the film.

Clint is the man behind some of the most celebrated soundtracks of the past two decades.

His music has been recognised with Grammy and Golden Globe nominations and he is a longtime collaborator of groundbreaking director Darren Aronofsky, for whom he scored Black SwanRequiem For A Dream, The Fountain, The Wrestler, Noah and Pi.

In addition to his work on MOON and Aronofsky’s films, Clint created the scores for Jon S. Baird’s Filth and Park Chan-wook’s Stoker. Most recently he has completed work on Ben Wheatley’s film of JG Ballard’s High Rise, due for release in early 2016.

Clint will also be reuniting with Duncan soon to score his next film, MUTE! (That’s a bit bloody exciting eh?)

Clint Mansell - Uneasy Listening Tour March 2016

Mansell’s band, pianist Carly Paradis and the Sonus Quartet, join him on stage to perform his work.

I went to see Clint at the Barbican in London in 2014 and I can promise you if you get to see any of the dates on this tour you are in for a treat. Can’t wait to experience it all again in Brum 🙂

Uneasy listening, aural pleasure.

Akber Ahmed Creates New Age Pyschedelia MOON Poster

Akber Ahmed - MOON Poster

Akber Ahmed popped up on Twitter earlier today to draw attention to a set of “New Age Psychedelia” style film posters he’s just released featuring Duncan Jones’ MOON, so we thought you’d enjoy a look at what Duncan Jones himself described as “Beautiful work!”
Here’s the project description from Akber over on his site where you can view his versions of posters for DRIVE and NIGHTCRAWLER too:-

“Every few years a film is released that is generation defining. It stands as a testament to the times it was made in as well as the mindset of the masses.  The best of these carry a universal message that holds true even decades after the film is released.”

“This series revolves around the modern cinematic masterpieces of this generation. Although we may be bombarded with blockbuster films all year round, a true cinephile can spot the diamonds in the rough. While perhaps not the greatest commercial successes, these films are groundbreaking and their cult status has been cemented. These films have also served as vehicles for some of the finest actors of our time.”

“The films have been done in the psychedelic poster style made famous by the 1960’s love generation. As this is a modern take on the style, the term I use for this is New Age Psychedelia, not to be confused with the music genre Neo-Psychedelia.”

Talking about MOON specifically Akber said:-

“Why did I choose Moon? Well the answer is quite simple. The film reinvented the sci-fi genre and Sam Rockwell’s career-defining performance as Sam Bell really made us feel the isolation one would feel 250,000 miles from home.”

“In my opinion, the real secret ingredient is Duncan Jones.”

Thanks to Akber for creating such a great poster and allowing is to share.
