[LISTEN] AIR: ‘Le Voyage Dans La Lune’

Air’s soundtrack to the restored version of George Méliès’ classic 1902 short Le Voyage Dans La Lune (A Trip to the Moon) is set for release next week (Feb 7), which comes with a DVD of the groundbreaking sci-fi film (popularised recently by Martin Scorsese’s wonderful Hugo). We’ve already heard several cuts, including the Victoria Legrand-featuring ‘Seven Stars’, and now all 31 minutes of the album is available for streaming thanks to NPR. So far I’m enjoying the soundtrack – it’s an interesting psychedelic departure for Air – but mostly I’m looking forward to watching the DVD and discovering how Air’s new music works with this restored version of such an important piece of cinematic history.
