    Heart Of Data

    Factory Floor 'Heart Of Data/Babel'

    £11.99

    Factory Floor were originally commissioned by London’s Science Museum, to write a brand new live score for Fritz Lang’s 1927 silent cinematic landmark, Metropolis.

    The 150 minute score was performed live at the Science Museum’s IMAX in April 2017, coinciding with the 90th anniversary release of Metropolis and as part of the acclaimed Robots exhibition and event series.

    Heart of Data and Babel will be the first 12” release on Factory Floor’s own imprint H/O/D Records.

    The label was originally set up by the band with Cargo distribution in view of having an outlet for there collaborative projects, an idea that came into phase during their residency at London’s ICA in 2011. An inspired six and half minute track, Heart of Data bears all the hallmarks of a Factory Floor record but as you’ve never heard them before. An animated modular synth groove sets in motion the atmospheric textures within the spacial arrangement.

    The B side Babel which traverses many scenes in the film, retains a transient meditative pulse in pursuit of space and time. Both bring together an emotive relationship between the machine like qualities of their instruments and visual images provided by Fritz Lang’s industrial masterpiece. 

    Following the success of the London Science Museum event, Factory Floor’s reimagined Metropolis score was performed live at Sheffield’s Sensoria Festival in October 2017 and the recorded audio was showcased at the Brighton Film Festival at the Attenborough Centre for creative arts on November 2017.

    The H/O/D label art was designed by British artist Haroon Mirza, adapted by Sam Moore and Nik Void. Heart of Data is the first of two 12” releases planned for early 2018 with a full length audio of the score on CD and download to follow.

    Factory Floor are Gabriel Gurnsey and Nik Void, whose electronic improvisational style of performance has seen them at home in gallery spaces like Tate Modern, to clubs like fabric and Berghain to a remote volcanic Island of Stromboli in collaboration with artist Haroon Mirza.

    Their critically acclaimed second album 25 25 was released in the summer of 2016 on DFA Records.
