Performance for the Misty Moon Film Festival this weekend

This weekend we will be giving a very special live performance for The Misty Moon Film Festival at The Ladywell Tavern in South London.

We will produce an improvised soundtrack to an edit of the 1963 Czech sci-fi film "Ikarie XB1".

It's an obscure black & white masterpiece of a film that is said to have partly inspired Kubrick's 2001 - A Space Odyssey.

Here is an excerpt from the original film:

Hopefully we will do something that suits this amazing movie..

The performance will last for an hour and will be part of an interesting evening of film and art, the opening night of the Misty Moon Film Festival. You will also be able to view the current Halloween Exhibition in The Misty Moon Gallery (which includes some photography by myself).

Please come and join us this Saturday the 26th of October from 7pm at The Ladywell Tavern, 80 Ladywell Road, South London. SE13 7HS. Entrance is free and because of the refurb that is in progress at the Tavern, it will be a cash only bar.

The nearest station is Ladywell, and this is probably the best way to travel there as parts of Ladywell Road are closed for major roadworks - please take this into account when travelling.

Hope to see you there!

UPDATE: We must thank the kind people at Second Run DVD for granting us permission to do this performance. Here is a link to their site where you can buy a newly restored version of Ikarie XB1:

  1. Hi,

    Erm... this is Second Run DVD and we've just released IKARIE XB 1 on DVD here in the UK and we own the UK rights. No one approached us to ask permission to screen this. Can you contact me at: info@secondrundvd.com
