Following the album release of the acclaimed soundtrack to the UK TV version of the The Moomins, one of its original composers, Graeme Miller, has created a new full re-scoring of Tove Jansson’s second and almost visionary second Moomins book, Comet in Moominland, featuring some of the original themes by Leeds post-punk duo Graeme Miller and Steve Shill. Miller will be joined by Jamie Telford to perform this re-score live in the Brunel Goods Shed with the pair using a kitchen table-full of small instruments (including a box of cornflakes), whilst Moomin troll’s wild adventure pans out on screen. This is a rare chance for Moomins fans old and new to experience Anne Wood’s TV adaptations of Film Polski’s breathtakingly charming animations, all accompanied by a live score which mixes Casios with ocarinas and the voices of vintage synthesisers with instruments from around the world.
Please note this isn't a Moomins feature movie - whilst children are welcome it is quite quirky material. Young people very welcome but should be accompanied by an adult over 18.
Doors open at 7.30pm, film and performance starts at 8pm followed by Q&A
