Filmbar70 and El Diabolik invite you to partake in an adventure in audio as we take you by the ear and trawl the wild and way-out grooves of the Psychotronic soundtrack.
Fueled by the unrestrained requirements of exploitation cinema, the psychotronic soundtrack emerged from the alchemical reaction when psychedelic pop, beat and the avant-garde infected
the formally constrained confines of the classical conservatoire.
We’ll be unearthing the history of this sprawling topic with a track listing that takes us from the beach parties of the ‘60s through to the dawn of the synth in the ‘80s, showcased via a series of chats, clips and specially made content, all scored by the spinning platters of El Diabolik.
And, for after, you’ll be taking the lead for a party where your requests will be sounded and your vinyl spun. And if that’s not enough, on entry, you will receive a free exclusive psychotronic soundtrack CD, mixed el diabolik himself.
Here’s just a smattering of what to expect, pop pickers!
The kids are allright – Beat, psychedelia and how teenagers changed the film soundtrack.
Kino klangfarben – How avant-garde outrageousness freaked a generation out.
Dustbowls, bells and whistles – The Spaghetti Western and its influence on Italian genre cinema.
Wig out – How progressive rock and jazz-fusion bomblasted the unsuspecting cinema audience.
Proud vision – The cinematic sounds of the new empowered black youth of America.
Dawn of the synth – How one man and his trusty synth changed the face of the Psychotronic Soundtrack.
And much, much more!
