‘It is unusual to sit silently through a football match in this city of 1000 football chants. But Mogwai delivered a different kind of soundtrack... a sense of how it really feels to be out there in the middle, fighting with the pressure and the noises inside your head.’
Played live for the very first time, Mogwai’s celebrated score for Douglas Gordon and Philippe Parreno’s Zidane, A 21st Century Portrait was a hypnotic and heavy counterpoint to the drama on the pitch. The event, introduced and overseen by Gordon, drew in capacity crowds for this most beautiful likeness of the beautiful game.
Since MIF13 Mogwai: Zidane, A 21st Century Portrait has been seen by audiences in London and Glasgow.
