SFJAZZ GoGo Penguin: 'Koyaanisquatsi'

GoGo Penguin present a live performance of their original score to Godfrey Reggio's cult film Koyaanisqatsi performed live with the film. 

Originally scored by Philip Glass. Koyaanisqatsi is a remarkable cinematic masterpiece and a firm favourite of the band's for its powerful fusion of music and image. In 2015 GoGo Penguin wrote and performed their new score for the film as part of the opening season of Home - a new centre for international contemporary art, theatre, and film in Manchester. 

GoGo Penguin's richly emotional music offers a perfect contemporary dialogue with Reggio's profound images. Moving from fragile beauty to powerful frenzy their rich new score reflects the original themes of the film and in performance offers an over-whelming audio-visual experience that will appeal to fans of GoGo Pemguin and cult cinema in equal measure. 

In a night of film and music, the trio applies their hypnotic, swirling grooves informed by EDM and post-modern classical composition to this performance of their new score go filmmaker Godfrey Reggio's landmark 1983 film Koyaanisqatsi, accompanying the iconic Philip Glass soundtrack.
