British Sea Power will premiere a powerful new soundtrack performed by Yan and Noble of British Sea Power in the CERN Globe of Science and Innovation, in association with Branchage Soundtrack to OUT OF THE PRESENT.
Formed in 2000, British Sea Power have built a reputation of both being a blistering live band with a Mercury nomination for their 2007 release Do You Like Rock Music? alongside championing alternative performances in unusual locations from seaforts to caverns to village halls. In 2008 they were commissioned by the British Film Institute to create a new soundtrack to the 1934 silent documentary Man of Aran, which they’ve toured extensively to music and film festivals, including the Branchage Jersey Film Festival in 2009.
Out of the Present is a new challenge for the band, with the film firmly rooted in the futuristic world of space travel mixed with the historical aspects of the Cold War and the fall of Communism. In bringing this to the very location which is at the forefront of science and technology, to perform at at CERN, we can expect a completely new experience in sound and vision from this exciting band.
