Mica Levi

Under the Skin

Film screening with live orchestra

‘Mica Levi's score sounds at times like a new electronic language being born or a subtle form of communication between aliens.’ Time Out

Jonathan Glazer’s 2014 film Under the Skin impressed critics with its uncomfortable portrayal of an otherworldly predator, for which Mica Levi’s beautiful, elemental and skewed music provided the intoxicating soundtrack.

Previously known as a DJ and singer-songwriter in her band Micachu and the Shapes, with whom the London Sinfonietta have collaborated, Levi was catapulted to international fame and earned herself a BAFTA nomination for the film score, which she conducts live. With strains of Ligeti and Cage running through its hazy mix of digitally-processed and live sound, it veers between sensuality and disquiet to compelling effect.
