Following A Field In England, Doomsday, 2001 and Flash Gordon, Teeth of the Sea are writing and performing a live soundtrack to another film.
This time it is the movie '1984' and it is being perfumed live at the legendary CERN in Geneva, Switzerland as part of the CineGlobe festival on Thursday March 20th
The festival says:
British Band Teeth of the Sea perform live their original, CineGlobe commissioned, audio-visual musical interpretation of George Orwell’s 1984, 30 years after the legendary date.
The Last Man resonates thematically with the theme of the festival-Beyond The Frontier. A visual interpretation of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, in conjunction with an entirely original score, this will draw parallels between the totalitarian nightmare of Orwell’s Oceania and the information-saturated modern age, questioning the abilities of the individual to find passage through the blizzard of data that constitutes twenty-first century life. The titular character of Winston Smith herein represents both a cipher for identity in a landscape evolving to ever more automated and anonymous realms, and a glimmer of hope for humanity itself.
Teeth Of The Sea, in collaboration with director and visual artist Benjamin Barfoot, will attempt to take the intensity, austerity and atmospheric landscapes of Nineteen Eighty-Four to transcend the text’s cultural ubiquity and render it freshly potent. Yet this is no aesthetic Newspeak, rather a portrait of a dehumanising world surrounding us that continues to prove the universal power of Orwell’s message.
