The immense Amiina will perform their latest release – a live soundtrack of the movie Fantomas at Radialsystem V in Friedrichshain this April.
With amiina one of the most original and adventurous bands from Iceland dedicate themselves to the legendary film classic „Fantômas“. Since the publication of the first novel more than one century ago, the sinister villain Fantômas with his innumerable faces and disguises has stimulated the imagination of a constantly large audience and appeared in diverse films, comics, and theatre plays. The first film version by Louis Feuillade with René Navarre in the title role was one of the biggest successes in the cinema of its time.
Until today it has not lost any of its gloomy fascination, thereby perfectly fitting the timeless beauty of amiina’s music: Between playful pop experiments and fragile chamber folk, the Icelandic band, also known for its long-time collaboration with Sigur Rós, creates a unique sphere of sound. amiina’s soundtrack for „Juve contre Fantômas“, the second episode of Feuillade’s legendary serial, had its premiere in the renowned Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris – within a programme curated by Yann Tiersen on the occassion of the 100th anniversary of the first film version. In the meantime the film score was also released as an album (Morr Music / Mengi).
In April, UM:LAUT welcomes amiina for one of their rare film concerts: With their extraordinary instrumentarium and multilayered sound, the Icelanders weave a captivating film music spectacle – melancholic and ethereal, yet full of suspense, pounding rhythms and haunting melodies.
