Antoni Maiovvi at the Lash this Thursday

21Oct13

Antoni Maiovvi and BodyheatThis Thursday I’ll be VJing a special Italo Horror movie set for Antoni Maiovvi and Bodyheat DJs Skin_BOT, Georgeo, and Dr.

Antoni Maiovvi is a project started in 2006 by composer Anton Maiof to expand upon the world of horror soundtracks.  Working in the style of old movies conjures a certain internal imagery and a set of nostalgic feelings.  Evoking the memory of movies watched but not well remembered.

Watching sci-fi and horror as a teenager was always exciting because I had no idea what was in store for the future, the movies were setting the bounds of possibility.  However the future in film was a different world, where people struggled with new questions about the nature of humanity.  I’m a little disappointed the real 2013’s uses of technology boil down to new ways to date and advertize.

For Thursday I’ve clipped up several Dario Argento films as well as Blade Runner to somewhat reinstate the imagery that inspired this music.

A post script
The first scene of Blade Runner is perhaps the classic example of futuristic imagery heightened through a synthesized score.  Hearing those first chords Vangelis lays down is a magical moment.  And rather than attempt to describe all the nuance of this opening, I’ve simply posted the video below for you to enjoy yourself.
