“Sometime in the future in a state controlled society, conformity and homogeneity are the rule; a time when people have designations instead of names. A man, THX 1138, and a woman, LUH 3417, rebel against their rigidly controlled society…”

Matt Clark, Brighton based experimental guitarist and composer, performs an improvised live score to the film, interweaving with and adding to Lalo Schiffrin’s sparse original soundtrack.

Support from Cinerama [Stripped Back 3-Piece Format]:

In 1997… [David] Gedge (The Wedding Present) started work on a new project called Cinerama in which he indulged his love of film music from John Barry to Ennio Morricone via Serge Gainsbourg, Blaxploitation, easy listening and surf music!

THIS EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE IN OUR MAIN SPACE – KOMEDIA DOWNSTAIRS

AGES 14+ (UNDER 16s MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT)

Matt Clark; Three

Matt Clark; Three is a new, rhythm based jazz project I’m starting. The music takes influence from the burgeoning new jazz scene on both sides of the Atlantic, but also throws a nod to influences as diverse as Krautrock, funk and hip-hop.

It’s a convergence ideas inspired by all the new music I’ve heard over the last couple of years, and aims to be more than just a gigging band. Think events, happenings, art installations, film scores…

It’s early days, but stay tuned for more…

Elephant’s Graveyard Review


Excellent review of Elephant’s Graveyard from Fringe Review – I’m really proud to have been part of this, and the play will now be a full production run next year!

“Billed as a rehearsed reading director David Eaton has managed more in the flexible NVT Studio space. With Kasha Goodenough on production and managing, Vanessa Barrett and Mark Green on seedy costume designs – this is a full costume performance. The overall scarlet/black detail of costumery is carried to Adam Kinkaid’s scarlet/black scene painting. Keith Dawson’s light design is unfussy. Leanne McKenzie’s light and sound operation comes to the fore in balancing the live musicians: Adam Hewitt music director, Becca Huggett singer, guitarist Matthew Clark and Neil Rocks on drums. Marie Ellis deserves notice for voice coaching.”
