Under the Skin
Film screening with live orchestra
Jonathan Glazer’s 2014 film Under the Skin impressed both filmgoers and critics with its darkly seductive portrayal of an otherworldly predator, played by Scarlett Johansson. Mica Levi’s beautiful, elemental and skewed music provided the intoxicating soundtrack.
Previously known as a DJ and singer-songwriter in her band Micachu and the Shapes, Levi was catapulted to international fame and earned herself a BAFTA nomination for the film score. With a dizzying mix of digitally-processed and live sound, Levi’s microtonal world is captivating in performance – veering between sensuality and disquiet to compelling effect.
This performance offers the unique opportunity to watch Under the Skin with Levi’s score performed live with by the world renowned London Sinfonietta.
Under the Skin is being screened by arrangement with STUDIOCANAL
* Please note that Under the Skin includes nudity and some scenes of a sexual and violent nature.
"Mica Levi's score ups the dread level: it sounds at times like a new electronic language being born or a subtle form of communication between aliens."Time Out
