Galway’s Shampain brings ‘The Man Of Aran’s Nightmare’ to the Sugar Club next month. Following a sold out An Taibhdhearc on Halloween night, the G-Town Records boss will bring the 1930s silent classic Man of Aran by Robert Flaherty, with a re-scored soundtrack mixed live by the man himself.
Shampain presents a night of tradition and tension as The Sugar Club screens the 1930s silent classic Man of Aran by Robert Flaherty. The reimagined soundtrack aims to blur the divisions between Ireland’s modern day contemporary culture, with those of the past.
Taking the scenic and dramatic activities of the hour-long feature and draping it in obscure, dry and cold left of field electronic sounds, the islanders’ lives are turned upside down throughout an hour and 15 minutes of on-screen and auditory tension.
The film will then be followed by very special guest DJs in the main room, with the legendary Andy Bell and Arveene taking on the terrace until late at night, to dance off the intensity of the movie well into the night.
Taking inspiration from the legendary Jeff Mills’ soundtracking of Fritz Lang’s ‘Metropolis’, the G TOWN Records co-founder decided that curating a soundtrack for a movie more close to home would tie together a lot of his electronic influences and skill as a DJ with his Connemara roots that seemed quite alien from each other up until now.’
