Dark Star, with live Soundtrack by Animat
Dark Star is a cult classic and a seminal influence on 21st century sci-fi. John Carpenter’s 1970s low budget space comedy has found its place in the pantheon as the missing link between 2001: A Space Odyssey and Red Dwarf.
Sheffield re-score maestros Animat’s new soundtrack mixes up their original brand of dub-infused downtempo with an eclectic selection from their DJ archive and remixed versions of themes from the original score.
The Third Half
The Third Half spin an entrancing web of harp, guitar, and angelic vocals and have already made an impact at ambient electronica and roots festivals. Recent work includes contributions to albums by Reverend and the Makers, I Monster and Animat, who will be joining them for an exclusive live set at Beacons.
‘When the songs end you suddenly find yourself back in the room, slightly disorientated as if emerging from an intense daydream’ – Jay Cousins, Melting Point
