Happy new year all from Kenya ! Just out of fantastic Kilifi Festival.
Nice article and behind the scenes video from Vice on our film The Bomb with live score by The Acid. It's not too late for us to prevent annihilation !
Friends, Earthlings, beings of The Universe. Our score is out on all platforms today
The back story: We ( @theacid ) scored a film called The Bomb. It's a documentary about the story of nuclear weapons, how little the general public knows about them and why they are a really really bad idea! A documentary of archival footage, no narrative, just our score. Based on the book ‘Command and Control’ by Eric Schlosser ( a must read!). We have had the pleasure of working alongside ...Eric, Smriti Keshari, Kevin Ford , Stanley Donwood, Kingdom of Ludd on the film and United Visual Artists helped us bring it alive into a massive 8 screen 360 installation, in which we have been performing the score live to the film.
We premiered at Tribeca Film Fest last year, have since performed it at The Berlinale, Glastonbury festival ( @shangrila) built us a huge gas tower to perform it in over 3 nights. We are soon off to perform it at the Sydney Festival. A massive congratulations to our friends at ICAN who just WON THE NOBEL F*ING Peace prize!!! Nobel Peace Prize for getting 122 countries to sign up to pledge to prohibit and eliminate Nuclear Weapons from the Earth. Fingers crossed, if all things align, we will be off to perform this score at The Nobel Ceremony in Oslo next month.
This film and score could not be about a more crucial issue- the survival of our earth and all that dwell upon her. SO please come see us perform it somewhere, watch it on Netflix, play the score to everyone you know and get involved in the issue.
