Italian legends Goblin are to play Unsound 2010, with members Claudio Simonetti, Massimo Morante, Maurizio Guarini, Bruno Previtali and Titta Tani included in the lineup.
Goblin are best known for the creation of unique and influential soundtracks to classic horror films by Italian director Dario Argento. These include 1975’s “Profondo Rosso” (“Deep Red”) and 1977’s “Suspiria”, remarkable for its experimental sounds and creepy vocals. Goblin also scored George A. Romero’s “Dawn of the Dead”.
Although Goblin reformed in 2009 to play five shows, this current line up marks the first time co-founder Claudio Simonetti has performed with the band live in many years.
The show will include visuals from Dario Argento movies, to be re-mixed live by a Norwegian visual artist soon to be announced.
Goblin’s appearance is part of the Unsound 2010 theme “Horror – The Pleasure of Fear and Unease”. The project is presented with Norway’s Insomnia Festival and Iceland’s Rejkiavik Round-Up.
Berlin’s CTM (Club Transmediale) are also partners for this project, and have been instrumental in bringing Goblin to Unsound. CTM intends to present a second part of the “Horror” program in the near future in their hometown.
Goblin’s performance is scheduled for 23.10.2010.
