Hot on the heels of the announcement of the Making Moon book coming in September from Titan Books, we have news of yet more goodness celebrating the 10th anniversary of the release of Duncan Jones’ debut feature.
MOON will be screened at the Barbican Centre in London on Friday 19th July 2019 accompanied by a live score performed by The London Contemporary Orchestra and introduced by Clint Mansell himself. Details from The Barbican Centre…
On 20 July 1969, man set foot on the moon for the first time, now the LCO celebrate that day’s 50th anniversary, and ten years since the release of Duncan Jones’s cult sci-fi film Moon. It’s a story of celestial loneliness, with Sam Rockwell playing astronaut Sam Bell, in his third year as the sole caretaker of a space station. The music reflects this distant longing – plaintive piano forms the bedrock of each piece, joined by small steps of hushed strings and giant leaps of glitchy electronics.
Composer Clint Mansell will be in attendance and will open the evening with an introduction. Mansell was lead singer of Pop Will Eat Itself, before collaborating with director Darren Aronofsky on his film Pi. He’s since produced acclaimed scores for films such as Requiem For A Dream, The Wrestler, Black Swan, Loving Vincent and High Rise.
