Description

Japanese alt-rock band BO NINGEN release an alternative soundtrack album to cult director Alejandro Jodorowsky's seminal film The Holy Mountain.

 

Commenting on the release, Kohhei Matsuda (guitar/synth) and Monchan Monna(drums) said: "We wanted to make something more than 'a band jamming to the film' live score. To do so, we tried to decipher the secret of Jodorowsky's alchemy
to reach our own Holy Mountain, reflecting the underlying structure of the film - which is delusional at sight, yet mystically logical throughout - in each stage of the music. It was quite an experience to work on the piece that way, diving deep into the director's vision where the border between the reality, delusion, the film, and real life blurs. Trying not to drown in it all, we had to find our own path back to our own version of reality. This is an aural representation of our own version of the film. We hope each of you find your own way to your own version of The Holy Mountain through reliving this mind-altering journey with us."


The band originally performed their alternative soundtrack to the film in July 2019 for 2 sold out nights at the Rio Cinema in Dalston, where it was nominated for 'Best Event Cinema Campaign Of The Year 2019'.  In partnership with Deeper Into Movies, the band will also be hosting a very special live performance of their alternative soundtrack at EartH, Hackney on 1st March 2024 - a 700 capacity tiered seated venue with original Art Deco features and state of the art L-ISA sound system, to provide the best possible experience of this must-see-and-hear event.
