Slowdive and Ben Chatwin remix music from Cuts’ soundtrack to an experimental film; ‘Exist’
Anthony Tombling Jr a.k.a. Cuts’ original composition ‘Dream Voyager’, featuring vocals by Patti Aberheart, opens the 12” with a noise-fringed surge of synth pomp and swooning gothic feels which we’d imagine sounded suitably epic as part of the film’s screening at Dark Outside 2015, the festival in Galloway Forest Dark Skies Park.
Slowdive manipulate those emotions with a more tempered, steady grandeur urged by a slow pounding bass drum, and Ben Chatwin (Talvihorros) makes his first appearance since ‘Heat & Entropy’ to reimagine ‘Dream Voyager’ as a pent-up drama worthy of a cinematic blockbuster.
