Moon Safari


Air scores a newly restored edition of George Méliès’ 1902 film Le Voyage dans la Lune (A Trip To The Moon). Méliès hand-painted every frame of the color version of the film, which "pioneered the use of trompe l’oeil objects, papier-mâché props and double-exposure to tell the first science fiction tale in cinema." Air's score features vocals from Au Revoir Simone and Victoria Legrand (Beach House), and “when the people talk [in the film], we decided to use animal sounds,” says Nicolas Godin of Air.
