One of the most immediately striking and memorable elements of the film 2001: A Space Odyssey is its score. All of the music in the film was already in existence when he made the movie, not a single note used was written for the film. Somehow, after his work in post production editing, he wove music, film and theme together to form a nearly inseparable braid of cinematic experience.

To honor this mastery of the medium, we decided to re-score the film by commissioning original compositions from contemporary composers. So, all of the film's original score is out, replaced with new compositions written specifically for the film.

This afternoon screening at Barbes will be the world premier of the new score in its entirety, from opening to closing credits. Following the screening we will have a post show discussion and q&a with some of the composers. 

doors open at 2:30pm
