Metropolis: Audio Redux - Loop - 21st, 26th, 28th Sept 2011

(forwarded from Kate Philip):
Fritz Lang’s dystopian vision of the future has been ceremonially draped in musical pomposity for 84 years. The clumsy grandeur of this symphonic tragedy has finally been erased.

Electronic musician Miles Philip has taken the challenge to rewrite the soundtrack to remaster a masterpiece, to reform celluloid history with his own musical trappings. Sweeping electronic strings, synthetic arpeggios and deliciously sharp tech beats drive this cinematic masterpiece at light speed, colliding willingly with the 21st century.

For fans of Vangelis and Brian Eno, Orbital, Autechre and Underworld alike; let Miles Philip (aka Miles Cosmo) take you on a musical flight of fancy through Fritz Lang’s filmic genius.
