Independence Day soundtrack special edition, and hear it performed LIVE at RAH #ID4Live

David Arnold’s epic, fun and Grammy Award-winning soundtrack for the 1996 film Independence Day celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

There are only 50 copies left of a limited run (5,000) of the 2-CD format available from La-La Land Records – and you can also hear the film’s full score performed live by an orchestra alongside a screening of the film at the Royal Albert Hall on 22 September, details below. The end credits will also feature at a concert of David’s music in Prague on 5 June at which David will be a special guest.

#ID4Live is a chance to see and hear Independence Day screened on a massive screen at the Royal Albert Hall while an orchestra (the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra) performs the film’s score, LIVE, woohoo! These events are amazing, I’ve been to a few ‘live to picture’ screenings, and I hugely recommend going if you can.

The orchestral screening will be conducted by Nicholas Dodd who was also the orchestrator for David’s original score and David will give a pre-film talk about his work too. There’ll be subtitles and a 20m interval and you’ll hear the dialogue and special effects, it’s just the music track that’s replaced by the orchestra. It’s really clever 🙂
