The Cinematic Orchestra – In Motion 2011

The Cinematic Orchestra continue the In Motion series with a 2nd installment and a return to the Barbican in London on October 1st

In Motion is an ongoing live event curated by the band, where a selection of films chosen by the artists will be given original scores

The Cinematic Orchestra have invited Dorian Concept + Tom Chant, Grey Reverend, Austin Peralta, Kutmah and of course themselves to perform exclusive scores

this is a gig i’m rather excited about (my tickets arrived today) as i’ve not seen The Cinematics since the release of their second album, Every Day, in 2002

in 2003 they recorded a soundtrack for the 1929 silent film, Man With A Movie Camera, from Russian director Dziga Vertov. it was given a limited DVD release which i highly recommend seeing, if you can find a copy. their music fits the images perfectly. should you not be able to find a copy then simply get the album as it’s superb. here are a couple of tracks from that recording

Reel Life (Evolution II)

Work It! (Man with the Movie Camera)
