Guitar legend GARY LUCAS at BUT Film Festival
on Thursday 18 september
Guitar legend GARY LUCAS, "possibly the world's most popular avant- rock guitarist" (The Independent), unleashes his live music and film project 'MONSTERS FROM THE ID' at the BUTFF Festival at the Electron Breda on Thursday Sept. 18th at 10pm.
Gary Lucas, an afficonado of horror, fantasy and science fiction cinema whose longtime band is appropriately named Gods and Monsters, here creates a fever dream of intense visuals and wild sounds as he improvises savage and intense guitar scores and other-worldly soundscapes to accompany a collection of his favorite clips from horror, science fiction, and erotic cinema--including Polanski's "Rosemary's Baby", Mario Bava's "Black Sunday", "Carnival of Souls"-- plus many more cinefantastical surprises. In each sequence, Lucas' music blends with and enhances the existing film soundtrack to create something new, shivery, and beautiful.
This concert will be the rarely performed unexpurgated version of "Monsters from the Id" commissioned specially for the BUTFF Festival, as Lucas will include some hardcore erotic sequences by renowned photographer Roy Stuart in his program for the evening.
