VIDEODROOM: DIE HARD: REST NOW! FILM SCREENING + talk with Alberto Cattani
“L.A. 1988. Christmas Holidays. There’s a big party at the Nakatomi Plaza, the sumptuous sanctuary of a Japanese corporation in Downtown L.A.”: anyone with a soft spot for 80s action movies will immediately recognise the setup for the ultimate action flick ‘Die Hard’, starring Bruce Willis. As part of VIDEODROOM we’ll be presenting an ode to this cult classic, together with a very special screening of the film and some nice surprises. The Belgian-Italian experimental label Rest Now! has updated the original score by Michael Kamen and you’ll have the opportunity to hear it live, in its entirety, on 11 October.
Prior to the film screening we’ll be hosting a talk with Alberto Cattani, co-founder of Rest Now!. He’ll tell us all about the creation of ‘Die Hard: Rest Now! Motion Picture Soundtrack’, the alternative soundtrack with contributions by up-and-coming electronica talents Swan Meat, Chevel, Piano Princess, Benelux Energy, Lensk and Kris Vango. Cattani has also invited Chevel and Swan Meat to play live at the afterparty in our Balzaal. Soundscape phenomenon bod [包家巷] completes the line-up. Alberto Cattani himself will conclude the evening with a DJ set together with Mika Oki.
