We’re incredibly excited to be working with with the brand new festival, Summercamp, on two unique screenings, accompanied by live soundtracks. The festival features two days of music, art, food and family activities throughout the Camp and Furnace in the Baltic Triangle. 

Saturday night will see Liverpool band Mugstar soundtrack Ho Tzu Nyen’s 2009 film Earth. The movie is a 45-minute long, slow-moving story of body-strewn apocalyptic landscapes, inspired by Neo-Classical paintings and the brutality of Caravaggio. The film acts as a digital re-imagining of these instantly recognizable artworks, relocating their action and savagery to a futuristic Singapore. 

Mugstar are reknowned for their full on, intense live performances of their own distinct brand of psychedelic/noise/space/kraut rock. Throughout their career they have collaborated with artists and filmmakers to experiment and explore new territories.

On Sunday, Bronnt Industries Kapital will provide the soundtrack for the Russian film Turksib. The film follows Russia’s attempt to build a railway through one of the most inhospitable deserts in the world. The film was originally released in 1920 but only made it to Western audiences in 2011 as part of a new release from the BFI. Guy Bartell, a.k.a Bronnt Industries Kapital, will perform his newly commissioned soundtrack alongside the screening.
