Eccodek On The Fritz
Published August 20, 2007

Eccodek's Andrew McPherson and Deliveryboy will perform live an original accompaniment to the Fritz Lang's 1927 silent film classic Metropolis in Toronto August 28.

Tuesday August 28, live in Yonge-Dundas Square in the heart of Toronto, Eccodek's Andrew McPherson and resident beat master Deliveryboy will be performing an original soundtrack accompanying a screening of Fritz Lang's 1927 silent film classic Metropolis.

Patrick Carnegie, the Yonge-Dundas Square’s artistic director, commissioned Eccodek to create a contemporary soundtrack for the marquee presentation as part of the square’s City Cinema summer film series presented by Best Buy. Incorporating a rich musical tapestry of downtempo beats, electronica, jazz, dub, IDM and quite possibly a kitchen sink or two, the pair hope to translate the visionary film’s hypnotizing effect into sound.

The event is free and is set to run from 9:00 pm to 11:00 pm. Crowd expectancy is set for close to 1,000 spectators.
