Eastercon 2017, Innominate, is only a week away, but the excitement is mounting. An interesting and fun programme is always on the cards at Eastercon, the annual British SF conventions. This year there’s a cracker though!
There will be a World Premier at INNOMINATE. As a part of the Sunday evening live music event there will be a performance of music composed by Johann Johannsson for the new science fiction film “Blade Runner 2049“.
This will be the music’s first public performance and will make a great addition to the evening SF & Fantasy themed recital by Ondes Martenot player Thomas Bloch (www.thomasbloch.net) and harpist Pauline Haas (www.paulinehaas.com).
For the youngsters in the audience, know that the original movie, starring Harrison Ford, came out in 1982, in which a blade runner pursued and tried to terminate four replicants who stole a ship in space and had returned to Earth to find their creator. It was based on the Philip K. Dick’s book titled: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Quite different from the movie, but a very insightful SF classic.
