Following the album release of the acclaimed soundtrack to the UK TV version of the The Moomins, one of its original composers, Graeme Miller, has created a new full re-scoring of Tove Jansson’s second and almost visionary second Moomins book, Comet in Moominland, featuring some of the original themes by Leeds post-punk duo Graeme Miller and Steve Shill. Miller will be joined by Jamie Telford to perform this re-score live in the Brunel Goods Shed with the pair using a kitchen table-full of small instruments (including a box of cornflakes), whilst Moomin troll’s wild adventure pans out on screen. This is a rare chance for Moomins fans old and new to experience Anne Wood’s TV adaptations of Film Polski’s breathtakingly charming animations, all accompanied by a live score which mixes Casios with ocarinas and the voices of vintage synthesisers with instruments from around the world.
Please note this isn't a Moomins feature movie - whilst children are welcome it is quite quirky material with a live music score and is followed by a Q&A with Graeme Miller. Young people very welcome but should be accompanied by an adult over 18.
Tickets £10 (£8.50 children) advance or £12 on the door
