In the history of movies, the list of films with essential, iconic and influential looks is short. Films like Metropolis, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and 2001: A Space Odyssey all instantly come to mind. On that list, too, is Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. The “future noir” aesthetic it helped pioneer over thirty years ago remains a standard in science fiction to this day.
That legacy makes it an absolutely perfect film to commemorate in an art show, which is exactly what the Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, New York is doing this weekend. The Blade Runner art show is called Moments Lost – Music and Art Inspired by Blade Runner and is centered on a brand new album released by Analog Sweden. Fully funded through IndieGogo, the album is full of music inspired by and made with the same equipment Vangelis used to compose the score to the film. Each track also has an accompanying piece of art and those pieces, along with many more, will be on display beginning May 31.
