simon fisher turner - The Epic Of Everest

*Limited Edition Deluxe Vinyl, includes an 80 minute CD with additional tracks* This is just gorgeous - Simon Fisher Turner has scored the BFI National Archive’s restoration of 'The Epic of Everest', the official film record of Mallory and Irvine’s ill-fated 1924 Everest expedition as filmed by Captain John Noel. Turner is renowned for his film soundtrack work which began with Derek Jarman's Caravaggio (1986) and Blue (1993), plus scoring restorations of Un Chant D’Amour dir Jean Genet (1950) and The Great White Silence for the BFI. This new score was composed, orchestrated and conducted by Turner and features Andrew Blick (Gyratory System), James Brooks (Land Observations), Cosey Fanni Tutti (Throbbing Gristle / Carter Tutti Void), Peter Gregson, Asaf Sirkis (Asaf Sirkis Trip / Gilad Atzmon) and The Thapa Family. Working on the project for over a year, Turner “went about gathering the musicians in the same way I cast extras for Jarman’s films”. Brass plays a big part in the overall soundtrack (“the album was almost jazz”, he admits) and the score features Cosey Fanni Tutti (Throbbing Gristle, Carter Tutti Void) on cornet (“she sounds fantastically Tibetan”, says Fisher Turner) and Gyratory System’s frontman Andrew Blick on trumpet. To complement the brass, he enlisted labelmate James Brooks (Land Observations), drummer Asaf Sirkis (Asaf Sirkis Trip / Gilad Atzmon) and the pioneering cellist and composer Peter Gregson, currently the Artist in Residence at the School of Design Informatics of Edinburgh University as well as the Thapa family, a Nepalese family he found through the Embassy in London. In addition Simon Fisher Turner explains, “Both my children were keen to help so we recorded sounds throughout the last year and in two different churches, with them playing cup gongs and prayer bowls.”
