Ben Power and friends re-interpret score to 2013 film paying homage to 1970s Italian horror films

This year’s East End Film Festival will feature a number of exciting music-based accompaniments to bolster the program for the 16th edition of the festival, having been founded in 2000.

Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani’s The Strange Colour Of Your Body’s Tears, a tribute to the revered Italian horror films of the 1970s will get a new soundtrack devised by Ben Power, otherwise known as Blanck Mass and one had of Fuck Buttons. Collaborating with a number of artists from across the world, each musician was assigned a scene to work with and given creative freedom to soundtrack that scene as they saw fit, without any knowledge of what others involved in the project were planning. Contributions to the new score come from Roll The Dice, Helm (who has just released his latest album through PAN), Moon Gangs, Phil Julian, Konx-Om-Pax and C. Spencer Yeh, plus Blanck Mass himself of course. The soundtrack will also be released by Death Waltz in double vinyl format, while the screening will followed by a DJ set from Ben Power and friends. This specific screening will be held at Shoreditch’s Red Gallery on July 10, and tickets are priced at £10. You can find full details for the screening here.
