The techno veteran’s composition of the 1928 movie will premiere at Centre Pompidou in Paris on September 19th.
Richie Hawtin has scored a 1928 silent film called Brumes d'automne, originally directed by Dimitri Kirsanoff.
The Minus chief is no stranger to avant-garde projects: in 2011 he played at the opening of Anish Kapoor's Leviathan sculpture in Paris, and just last year he performed as Plastikman at New York's Guggenheim Museum. (The Guggenheim gig formed the basis of Hawtin's recent album, EX.)
His latest endeavour sees him re-score the 12-minute black-and-white film as part of an exhibition curated by French director Bertrand Bonello. His effort is one of three new scores for Brumes d'automne: the other two come from Bonello and Singaporean composer Diana Soh. The aim, according to the press release, is to ask: "What would we see differently if the music was different?”
Hawtin will present his work at the opening on Friday, September 19th, at Paris's Centre Pompidou. The exhibition will run from September 19th through October 26th, open every day except Tuesdays.
