You many not know his name, but if you’re a movie fan you’ll certainly know his music: Simon Boswell is one of the UK’s finest living soundtrack composers, whose work has graced films such as Danny Boyle’s debut ‘Shallow Grave’, Alejandro Jodorowsky’s mind-melting ‘Santa Sangre’, loopy Angelina Jolie cybercrime flick ‘Hackers’ and shedloads of European horror movies by the likes of Dario Argento, Lamberto Bava and Michele Soavi. Now, for the first time, Boswell will bring his synth-rock soundtrack supergroup The And to the stage with a live show set to combine music, film clips and video art. The event is part of the Raindance Film Festival, London’s leading showcase of independent cinema, and follows the UK premiere of ‘The Otherworld‘ , a new documentary by one of Boswell’s most fruitful collaborators, Richard Stanley (‘Hardware’, ‘Dust Devil’).
To make things even more exciting, we’ve got a special ticket offer for Time Out readers: book your tickets for the live show online at leicestersquaretheatre.ticketsolve.com, enter the code timeout14 and you’ll only pay £11, a saving of £5 on the official price.
