Hypnotic ambient electronic soundscapes

Animat's 4th full-length album 'How to be a Shadow' consists of studio recordings and remixes of the themes and tracks written for the duo's live soundtrack to the film 'Un Homme Qui Dort' which they premiered at last year's Scalarama festival.

Musicians, producers and DJs Mark Daly and Michael Harding have been working together as Animat since 2005. Over the last decade they have released albums on the Big Chill, Mareld and Bloodsugar labels, as well as appearing on numerous compilations.

They have worked with guest vocalists including Sanchita Farruque (Nitin Sawhney, Trilok Gurtu), Anne Garner and Lisa Palmer, remixed tracks for acts including Pitch Black, Banco de Gaia and Deep Dive Corp, and had music used in multimedia projects at Tate Britain and New York's Leverhouse Gallery.

They have established a national reputation in the UK for their unique live soundtracking events, performing live at cinemas, festivals and other venues across the country with cult films including Dark Star (John Carpenter), Belleville Rendezvous (Sylvain Chomet), and The Straight Story (David Lynch).

Based on a novel by Georges Perec, the Jean Vigo prizewinning 'Un Homme Qui Dort' turns its back on conventional narrative or dialogue, instead telling its story through voiceover and inventive black and white cinematography.

Animat's live soundtrack created a hypnotic, ambient electronic soundscape that sat perfectly with the mood of the film.
