Mogwai do art and advertising

stolen wholesale from the forum (thanks kahlo):

A Mogwai track is to be used as the soundtrack of an art installation in Bucharest for the Urban Art festival on September 20th. The track Friend of the Night will be used while images are projected 84 metres high onto the Romanian Parliament - Europe's largest building.


Scottish post rock heroes Mogwai have kindly let me use one of their tracks "Friend of the night" as the soundtrack for the upcoming projection show in Bucharest.

The track is taken from their 2006 album "Mr Beast", which is among one of my favourites, and was what I was mainly listening to when I took many of the photos from the "Sonnets from Scotland" series.

Many thanks to Barry Burns for giving permission to use the track.
Here is the mock up of one of the pieces:

and whilst we're on the theme of other people using mogwai's music, many of you will already have seen the nike commercial 'a dream deferred', featuring 'i know you are but what am i?', first aired during the beijing olympics last month.
