Nick Cave and Warren Ellis to Perform their Film Scores With the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis will upsize their backing band from the Bad Seeds to the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra when they perform together as part of the Melbourne International Film Festival.

The orchestra, conducted by Benjamin Northey, will collaborate with Cave and Ellis on selections from their soundtracks for the films The Proposition, The Road, Hell or High Water, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, West of Memphis and Wind River.

The Film Music of Nick Cave and Warren Ellis will be presented as part of the 68th Melbourne International Film Festival.

‘’Very often a tension can happen between music and picture that is about chance and a kind of unknowingness that can be really amazing,” Cave said in a statement. “Just by putting together two things that were created in isolation, music and film, suddenly something quite magical can happen.”

MSO Associate Conductor Benjamin Northey said: “This is a unique opportunity to celebrate the work and creativity of two outstanding composers who have made a significant and lasting contribution to Australian music. I know everybody at the MSO is deeply committed to this project and I see it as one of our most exciting and artistically meaningful collaborations to date.”

Tickets on sale at 10am Thursday 11 April.

The Film Music of Nick Cave and Warren Ellis
