Animat have appeared at arthouse cinemas, festivals and other venues across the UK with our unique 'soundtracking' interpretations of weird and wonderful films. Performances incorporate specially written music, dialogue, effects, remixed themes from the original score and carefully chosen tracks from our eclectic DJ archive. We are currently working on a new film project and associated album which should see the light of day in early 2019 - watch this space.
Un Homme Qui Dort (2016)
Based on a novel by Georges Perec, the Jean Vigo prizewinning Un Homme Qui Dort (The Man Who Sleeps) turns its back on conventional narrative or dialogue, instead telling its story through voiceover and inventive black and white cinematography. Animat have composed and produced a new soundtrack which uses elements from the original narration (in both English and French) and creates a hypnotic, ambient electronic soundscape that fits perfectly with the pace and mood of the film: “an astonishing tour de force” - Time Out
