John Carpenter - Live in Concert


American film legend, director and composer - John Carpenter - goes on his first live tour this spring and gives his only Scandinavian performance on May 30th in Copenhagen - a concert arranged by CPH PIX, artFREQ., DR Koncerthuset and LiveNation.

From 'Halloween' to 'Lost Themes'

John Carpenter's live performance will include his film scores and new compositions from the 'Lost Themes' records, and audiences can expect a massive visual experience as well with scenes from the whole catalogue.

Though CPH PIX has moved from its April dates to October 27th, the film festival will host a number of film related performances around its old dates. These include Tindersticks' 'The Waiting Room' on April 26th at DR Concert Hall, Xiu Xiu (US) plays Twin Peaks at Jazzhouse on April 13th and not least John Cleese with his 'Last Time To See Me Before I Die' performance on 11th in Aarhus and 12th in Copenhagen.

John Carpenter's concert on May 30th 2016 is exclusive to Scandinavia, and tickets are now on sale HERE.

The Prince of Darkness

John Carpenter defined the horror genre through the 70's and 80's with films such as 'Assault on Precinct 13 (1976), 'Halloween' (1978), 'Escape from New York' (1981), 'The Thing' (1982), and many more.

And he not only directed these groundbreaking thrills, he also wrote and performed the original scores for most of his films.

I was deeply shocked when I saw 'Assault on Precinct 13' for the first time, and felt caught by his demonic use of music. Any director who wants to create a universe from scratch can learn from him. - Director, Jørgen Leth.

John Carpenter is the master of the memorably terrifying synthesizer riff. His scores always have a strong signature and a lot of character, sending chills down the spine of the listener with the simplest and most direct means available. - Composer, Jóhann Jóhannsson.
