CUTS - composer and filmmaker Anthony Tombling Jr - releases music from his experimental film ‘EXIST’ for the first time.

CD combines both ‘EXIST 1’ and ‘EXIST 2’.  ‘EXIST 1’ and ‘EXIST 2’ each available separately on heavyweight purple vinyl and digital download, with all original artwork by CUTS.

Inspired by a poem by HP Lovecraft, ‘EXIST’ explores night terrors and sleep paralysis. The 40-minute film, described by CUTS as an “existential journey into nowhere” features narration from cult graphic novelist Alan Moore (‘Watchmen’, ‘V For Vendetta’, DC Comics, ‘2000AD’). The film was premiered at Dark Outside, the unique 24 hour site specific festival in the Galloway Forest Dark Skies Park, in 2015; the music hasn’t been made available until now.

CUTS’ music has been described as “diving-bell-deep growls to sky-scraping, synthetic peals” by Crack Magazine with The 405 noting “clear influences from the powerful build of Mogwai tracks to the My Bloody Valentine-esque use of distortion and distant vocals.” On CUTS’ ‘EP1’ released by Invada, The Quietus wrote “the buzz and hum of fed-back electronics get underscored by the undoubtedly sinister-feeling creep of industrial percussive mechanisms.”

‘EXIST 2’ includes the track ‘Bunsen Burner’ (in original and Redux form), which can be heard on the Ivor Novello-winning original soundtrack to Alex Garland’s sci fi masterpiece ‘Ex Machina’, featuring in the film’s memorable climactic final scene. The track also featured in the finale of JJ Abrams’ cult hit US TV show ‘Person Of Interest’
