musique concrete at the movies (2 of ??)

I was struggling to remember this one and then Andrew Parker comes through... 

the electronics in the movie came from Rupert Hine, whose long winding career in the biz I find fascinating (quirkfusion novelty hit "The Lone Ranger" with Quantum Jump; a motley panoply of productions; fake pop group Thinkman with all the music by him solo but actors hired to play the band for publicity shots and videos, including then-emerging comedian Julian Clary aka the Joan Collins Fan Club)

musique concrete at the movies (1 of ??)


(via Tony Drayton)

a vehicle for Brit rock'n'roller Adam Faith, with some satire of bohemians and modern art going on, abstract painting and abstract musicking (as in the scene near the end of this clip) 

other suggestions of cinema concrete welcomed!

the electronic sounds in the movie were supplied by Desmond Leslie, whose Music of the Future was reissued by Trunk some years ago 

Could also have titled this post 'musique concrete at the theatre', because Leslie provided noise bits for these recordings of the Bard's great plays in the Living Shakespeare series

i am nutty enough to have bought a couple, although I'm not sure I ever listened to either all the way through

punky Legs


love the fake 'mean' expressions

better than the song, in many ways

as game efforts by resident TOP dance troupe to enact the spirit of the music, it is only rivaled by this
