Pinch and Bass Clef To Deliver Robocop Rendition
It wasn’t that long ago Bristolian bass impresario and Tectonic label head Pinch revealed that he was to undertake a new project with the launch of a new imprint called Cold Recordings to showcase a different, more techno orientated side of his musical personality.
Well now we’re getting to see several others as Pinch shows off his charitable and geekier sides for a new performance to help save Bristol arts space The Cube with a live version of the soundtrack to classic sci-fi film Robocop. The Cube is currently seeking funds in order to buy the building from which it operates as the lease they currently have on the venue expires this year. So to raise the capital required to keep the place afloat the organization has introduced the novel idea of hosting a night of bespoke film soundtacks at Bristol’s Old Vic in September.
Amongst the performances will be indie band Goan Dogs tackling Tim Burton’s off kilter fairy tale ‘Edward Scissorhands’ whilst the The Atlas Mountains Francois will provide the accompaniment for Claude Lelouch’s Un Homme Et Un Femme. The highlight for us however is the launch of a new score for 1987 cyber-fantasy Robocop by Tectonic founder Pinch alongside Bass Clef with the pairing promising “electro-retro-futuristic music” to get the crowd going. Sounds good to us…
The night will take place on September 6. Visit the website for tickets and further information by clicking here.
