Things That Go Bump In The Night
Bernard Herrmann’s music for Hitchcock’s Psycho still creates a spine-tingling feeling nearly 60 years after its premiere. Saint-Saëns’ famous Danse Macabre sets a scene where Death calls the dead from their graves to dance for him as he plays his spuriously tuned fiddle.
Youmi Kimura’s hit song Always With Me from the 2001 Japanese anime film Spirited Away tells the story of Chihiro Ogino, a sullen 10 year old girl who, while moving to a new neighbourhood, inadvertently enters the spirit world.
A spooky special event in the tradition of American Halloween concerts, Things That Go Bump In The Night features specially commissioned short films by talented Australian filmmaker, Anthony Lucas (Oscar-nominated director of The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello).
