Dungen ~ New York Times Pick Of The Week
Swedish psychedelic rock outfit Dungen will perform their dazzling original score to the 1926 silent film The Adventures of Prince Achmed for two shows in BRIC’s Ballroom.
Weaving music into the storytelling seamlessly, Dungen grabs at jazz, folk, and classical influences, taking you on journey through what is understood to be the oldest surviving animated film. While the quartet usually features sung lyrics, the Prince Achmed score, entitled Häxan and released in November 2016, was Dungen’s first instrumental album, and is sure to provide a rich sonic landscape during this BRIC House Session with the beloved Stockholm band who opened for Tame Impala at the 2016 BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival.
