Plan 9 From Outer Space (music that inspired the BFI re-score)

In 2014 I was invited to pitch ideas for the BFI Sci-Fi festival in the UK. The outcome was a re-score of the most infamous of all sci-fi films ‘Plan 9 From Outer Space’. Officially licensed, this was premiered at The Watershed (Bristol, UK) in Nov 2014.

This is not an audio version of the re-score but a mixtape that blends many of the tracks and ideas originally sidelined for the project alongside some sections that ended up featuring.
Throughout the mix I’ve also added narrative clips from the movie, highlighting elements of the story, underlining the atmosphere of the scenes and illustrating some of the inspiration for the track selection.

For further info on the project, the re-score and the live show please click HERE

Thanks for listening. I’ll sort out a download link for those that are keen asap
