February 9 street date. 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. Heart of Data and Babel is the first 12” release on Factory Floor’s own imprint H/O/D Records. 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. 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.
