Techno veteran Richie Hawtin was recently in the news for musically scoring a 1928 silent film called Brumes d’automne, originally directed by Dimitri Kirsanoff. It should come as no surprise, Richie Hawtin has always seemed to share a very close relationship with art.
His latest project shall have him re-scoring the 12 minute black & white film as a part of an exhibition that’ll be curated by French director Bertrand Bonello. Richie’s effort is to be matched by two other scores from Bonello himself and Singaporean composer Diana Soh. According to the release, the aim of this endeavor is to ask, “What would we see differently if the music was different?”
Hawtin’s work shall be presented at the opening on Sept 19th at Paris’s Centre Pompidou.
