Cinema and sound set to clash for latest effort by Goldfrapp

Written byROB SMYTH

A MERGER of music and cinema is set to spark the start of an electronic music duos latest assault on the industry.

Goldfrapp are just weeks away from beginning their 2014 UK tour in the Midlands and will mark the occasion with a special cinema event.

The pair are set to kick off their tour on March 26 at Birmingham Symphony Hall before going on to play a host of other dates in Manchester, Brighton, Portsmouth, Bristol, Reading, Glasgow, York and Gateshead.

However before they delight the crowds, on March 4, Goldfrapp are hosting a special Tales Of Us cinema event.

This will see the worldwide screening of the movie followed immediately by an exclusive dramatic live performance transmitted into cinemas from the magnificent surroundings of the legendary Air Studios in London.

Inspired by Goldfrapp’s latest album, Tales Of Us, the film is a 30-minute journey through five of the individual stories featured on the album. Stranger, Laurel, Jo, Drew and Annabel interconnect subtly, featuring themes of love, loss, madness and identity, taking the viewer on a unique musical journey.

The film was co-created by Alison Goldfrapp and director and writer Lisa Gunning (Nowhere Boy, Seven Psychopaths, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen).

Alison Goldfrapp said: “We’re very excited to present a unique event, the Tales Of Us film alongside an intimate live performance, to our fans across the world. We’ve loved touring the Tales Of Us album and can’t wait to bring our live show to cinemas.

“With only two stories having been seen previously this is an incredible exclusive opportunity to see the film Tales of Us as it was intended, as a complete journey and on the cinematic big screen, available in select locations for one night only.

“Cinema audiences will see the Tales Of Us film transition beautifully into a live 50-minute dramatic theatrical performance.”
