Original Soundtrack

Description from brianjosephdavis.com: Original Soundtrack is a live performance of 20 television sets and DVD players. On each DVD player is a different, commercially available movie left at its “menu” stage. The DVDs all feature endlessly looping musical cues (this is a design feature found on approximately 50% of all DVDs).

Performed using a customized mixer, loops are combined and stacked, resulting in a slightly unstable but scored 90-minute performance that moves from psyched out strings to destroyed funk and beyond. 

Featuring selections from: Carter Burwell, Jerry Goldsmith, Bernard Hermann, David Holmes, Goblin, Cliff Martinez, Ennio Morricone, Giorgio Moroder, Walter Murch, Popol Vuh, Howard Shore and others.
