Industrial Artists Frausun Release Classic Phantom Film with New Score
We love things that are in the "public domain". They allow artists to use existing art as a launching point for their own creations, and that's never a bad thing in our book. Case in point: Dallas-based industrial twosome Frausun have created an original score to accompany Lon Chaney's classic The Phantom of the Opera. After performing the score live at popular Dallas venue La Grange, they have now released the film complete with the new score.
By visiting Frausun's official website, you can check out a trailer for the work, 'rent' the movie to watch online, or purchase a DVD of the film. The DVD includes the trailer and a bio of Frausun as well as the film with the score.
Frausun, a duo comprised of Kurtz Frausun and his wife/slave Paloma, perform electronic/industrial Goth music with performances involving scarification, burlesque, and video. It's a wild ride!
In September of this year, Frausun's original opera, Dawn, will be performed at the Eisemann Center in Richardson, Texas. The performance will combine Wagnerian opera with electronic beats. In the meantime Frausun continues to perform live in and around Dallas; check the official Frausun website for dates and details, and be sure to also stop by and "like" Frausun on Facebook!
