DetailsNeil Campbell’s ‘FRANKENSTEIN’ is a new multimedia work written by local composer Neil Campbell and based on the famous Mary Shelley novel. The composition has been scored to be performed by an expanded version of the Neil Campbell Collective (Neil’s band) an ensemble which combines the energy and intensity of a rock band with classical instrumentation such as classical guitar, cello and operatic soprano. The piece will feature sound design, narration and specially developed visuals synchronised with the live music. This world premiere performance in St. George’s Concert Room in Liverpool, will take the audience on a musical journey through the Frankenstein story. Neil Campbell said "The piece uses the Frankenstein story as a basis to construct a series of musical movements for rock band with classical instruments and choir integrating specially developed visuals and sound design... it will be a gothic and dramatic musical experience taking the listener into the world of Victor Frankenstein, a visionary whose high scientific ambitions ultimately lead to tragic consequences ".
