Cry Parrot presents: Umberto
This listing is from a previous year. Search for current listings.
A true master of the horror film soundtrack aesthetic, Umberto's music is a hypnotic, all-consuming journey, reeling you into a foggy, neon-lit world of graveyards, stalkers, haunted houses, witches and blood-stained corpses. Evoking the unsettling progressive rock of Goblin and the sinister, dystopian synth-work of John Carpenter, his acclaimed releases are as playful and experimental as they are expertly crafted. Flying over from Kansas City, Missouri for this special performance, Umberto will provide a live soundtrack to a secret film of his choice in cutting-edge arts venue SWG3. Co-presented by independent promoters Cry Parrot, expect a suitably creepy production and otherworldly performance. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Music and Film Festival.
