Graeme Stephen’s Metropolis
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Stephens far-reaching guitarist-composers voice, now vast and scary, now dreamily delicate, now devilishly catchy, thats making this strain of his output so enthralling (Herald). Award-winning Scottish composer Graeme Stephen presents the world premiere of his score for the 1927 silent film Metropolis. The movie is a pioneering futuristic classic by German auteur Fritz Lang. The screening features a live soundtrack performed by the composer, innovative string quartet ZAPP 4 and acclaimed drummer Tom Bancroft. Metropolis is Stephens seventh film score. His composition for FW Murnaus Sunrise won the Innovation Award at the Scottish Jazz Awards.
