Explore the sonic world of Jim Jarmusch as Mulatu Astatke, Camille O’Sullivan and more revisit musical highlights from the director’s poetic and compelling cinematic oeuvre.

Music is the blood running through the veins of every Jim Jarmusch film. Think of John Lurie’s No Wave sax in Permanent Vacation crying out like the siren of a cop car; Tom Waits’s broken down, whiskey-soaked experimentalism propelling the limping jailbreak in Down by Law; or the dreamy desert haze of Neil Young’s soundtrack for the psychedelic Western, Dead Man.

This richly eclectic sonic palette is a longstanding source of fascination for David Coulter, the musician behind 2014’s In Dreams: David Lynch Revisited, who tonight brings together a team of players to pay tribute to the surreal sound of these films, including Ethiopian Jazz pioneer Astatke, Irish chanteuse Camille O’Sullivan, Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos, Jolie Holland and many more. Featuring the music of Tom Waits, Iggy Pop, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Neil Young, John Lurie, Sqürl and more, this is a chance be immersed in the strange and beautiful imagination of a maverick director.
