The Genius of Hitchcock –The Ring

Hackney Empire, London E8
13 July, 8pm, £10-£30

The Mercury Prize-nominated saxophonist and hip-hop artist Soweto Kinch has written a score to accompany a screening of a newly restored print of Alfred Hitchcock’s silent boxing drama The Ring (1927). The score will be performed live and Kinch promises “a lot of the sounds of the conventional jazz ensemble”, mixed with “more challenging”, modern beats.
