Awesome: Electronic Musician Dan Deacon Scoring Francis Ford Coppola's 'Twixt Now And Sunrise'

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist January 12, 2011 at 8:46AM

Well, it's now a bonafide trend. With Daft Punk tuning up "Tron: Legacy," Basement Jaxx working on "Attack The Block" and now Dan Deacon scoring Francis Ford Coppola's "Twixt Now And Sunrise" it looks like electronic beatmakers are the new go-to musicians for ambitious soundtrack work. What's next? Girl Talk scoring a John Sayles film? (Actually, that would fucking rule).

Well, it's now a bonafide trend. With Daft Punk tuning up "Tron: Legacy," Basement Jaxx working on "Attack The Block" and now Dan Deacon scoring Francis Ford Coppola's "Twixt Now And Sunrise" it looks like electronic beatmakers are the new go-to musicians for ambitious soundtrack work. What's next? Girl Talk scoring a John Sayles film? (Actually, that would fucking rule).

Details are scarce right now but considering Dan Deacon's party hearty tunage (hard to describe exactly but it falls somewhere between Andrew W.K. and LCD Soundsystem; but even that is a pretty glib comparison) it's certainly a surprising maneuver which has us every more curious about Coppola's secretive project which my or may not have a mid-film 3D sequence. At the very least, it seems someone has been borrowing Sofia Coppola's iPod (or maybe Jason Schwartzman's). And at any rate, we find it to be a wickedly inspired choice and really heartening, as we've said time and again, that Coppola senior is out there taking risks and chances while his fellow colleagues (mostly George Lucas) stick to very familiar, safe routines.

“Twixt Now And Sunrise” stars Elle Fanning, Val Kilmer, Joanne Whalley, Bruce Dern, Ben Chaplin, Don Novello, David Paymer and Alden Erenreich and is a gothic horror tale said to have “the imagery of Hawthorne or Poe.” Damn, if we were curious before we positively getting excited for whatever madness Coppola is cooking up. But that's not all Deacon and Coppola are working on as they are "collaborating on a larger level, details of which will be announced soon." Whoa.

You can check out "Wham City" by Dan Deacon below -- it's not entirely indicative of his entire oeuvre but pretty much a marker of what makes him hugely popular in the indie set (his in-the-round concerts are the stuff of legend).
