Watch Air Score First Ever Science Fiction Film

Publish date:

Another day, more info about Air’s upcoming record Le Voyage Dans La Lune! NPR reports that the band were asked to write a score to accompany a newly restored version of renowned French filmmaker Georges Méliès’ 1902 short film of the same title, which is widely accepted as the first science fiction film ever made. Inspired by the music they penned for the 16-minute film, they decided to expand their ideas into enough material for an album, which will drop February 6.

Now, you can check out about two minutes of part of their score for the film along with the visual images themselves – sticking with the tropes we heard on first cut “Seven Stars,” the band expertly amalgamate rock elements with electronic ones to create a playful, fun accompaniment to Méliès’ exciting, action-filled images.
