Inkfolk join forces with Gezellig to bring you this cult Sci-fi classic by John Carpenter with LIVE
re-score by Animat
Dark Star, John Carpenter’s first feature is widely regarded as a cult classic and a seminal influence on 21st century sci-fi. Co-written by and starring Alien Screenwriter Dan O’Bannon, this 1970s low budget space comedy has found its place in the science fiction pantheon as the missing link between 2001: A Space Odyssey and Red Dwarf.
Animat have developed a new soundtrack to the film which they perform live using a mixture of their own original brand of dubby downtempo, an eclectic selection of tracks from their DJ archive and remixed versions of themes from the original score.
Sheffield-based musicians, producers and DJs Mark Daly and Michael Harding, aka The Only Michael, have been working together as Animat since 2004 and have released six EPs and two albums on the Big Chill label. Their previous film re-scores have included The straight story, The last Man on earth and Belleville Rendezvous, which sold out at both Gezellig nights at the Trades Cub and Picture house for the Arts Festival and even had the Mayor of Hebden Bridge in attendance.
