DECONSTRUCTING DAD – THE MUSIC, MACHINES AND MYSTERY OF RAYMOND SCOTT

Dir. Stan Warnow   USA  2008  1hr 40mins

One of the most prolific, pioneering figures in 20th century music, Raymond Scott’s career started with a 1930s swing jazz quintet and continued through to the avant garde electronic music of the 1970s.  Scott was quoted as the man that ‘made cartoons swing’ – his music was used in Warners’ Bugs Bunny and Road Runner animations. He later invented the electronium, a prototype fax machine and worked for Motown as their Head of R&D. Still largely unknown to the general public, this documentary tells the story of Scott’s life and career from the perspective of his son Stan Warnow.

Director Stan Warnow will be interviewed by Martyn Ware (Future of Sound/Heaven 17) and give a Q&A following the screening.
