The Miners’ Hymns To Premiere At The Tribeca Film Festival

The film The Miners’ Hymns, a collaborative effort between FatCat’s Jóhann Jóhannson and filmmaker Bill Morrison, will premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival next week.

Centered around the Durham coalfield in Northeast England, The Miners’ Hymns focuses on the hardships of pit work, the powerful role trade unions have historically played in bettering the lives of miners, and the trade unions’ battles with police during the famous 1984 strikes.

The soundtrack marks a welcome return to brass instrumentation for Jóhannson, whose recent work has paired his electronics primarily with strings. It was performed and recorded live by a sixteen-piece brass ensemble whose ranks included players in the current incarnation of a brass band started by miners in 1877. The ensemble was led by Iceland’s Gudni Franzson.

The Miners’ Hymns album will be released June 7. Order it from our webstore
