FIMUCITÉ 16 - Cyberpunk, concerts & Brad Fiedel


Complete press release:

“The sci-fi genre “cyberpunk”, borne of noir fiction in the 80s, with authors such as William Gibson or Bruce Sterling, in which dystopian futures where technology and robotics dominate the world, is the theme of inspiration for the 16th Edition of the Festival Internacional de Música de Cine de Tenerife (FIMUCITÉ), an event that will take place from the 16th to the 25th of September with the support of Cabildo de Tenerife, Gobierno de Canarias, and the councils of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and San Cristóbal de La Laguna, among others. This way, the music from key ‘cyberpunk’ sagas such as ‘The Matrix’ or ‘The Terminator’, and other titles such as ‘Tron’, ‘Robocop’ or the legendary ‘Blade Runner’, this being the 40th anniversary of Ridley Scott’s masterpiece, will be performed by the Orquesta Sinfónica de Tenerife and the Tenerife Film Choir under the direction of renowned composer and orchestra conductor Diego Navarro, director of FIMUCITÉ.


In this new edition, as well the concert lineup, the audience will be able to, once again, enjoy encounters with great composers, such as American Brad Fiedel, composer of the scores for ‘Terminator’ and ‘Terminator 2’, who will be one of the guests for FIMUCITÉ 16. James Cameron gave him his big break in 1984 and the iconic score he wrote for the sci-fi classic starring Arnold Schwarzenegger shook the movie world and brought him international recognition. Known for his innovative style and his unique style of combinations of acoustic and electronic sounds, Fiedel composed the score for other successful films such as ‘Fright Night’ and its sequel, ‘The Serpent and the Rainbow’, ‘True Lies’ or ‘Johnny Mnemonic’. It’s worthy to note that this will be the first time that Brad Fiedel, creator of over 100 scores for film and TV, takes part in a specialized festival.


Tickets will soon be on sale for the themed concerts that will take place on Friday the 23rd of September and Saturday the 24th, respectively, ‘Cyberpunk Remastered (Vol. 1) – Manga / Anime’ and ‘Cyberpunk Remastered (Vol. 2) – Mecha’. Both concerts will share a section, which will include pieces from ‘The Terminator’, ‘Transformers’, ‘Total Recall’, ‘The Matrix’, ‘Blade Runner’ and the videogame ‘Cyberpunk 2077’, as well sections exclusive to either concert. In short, the concert programmed for the 23rd, dedicated to Manga and Anime, will include ‘Akira’, Ghost in the Shell’ and ‘Alita’, whereas the concert on the 24th, ‘Mecha’, will take us from silent classic ‘Metrópolis’ to ‘Tron’, ‘Pacific Rim’ or ‘Robocop’.




The Festival Internacional de Música de Cine de Tenerife is also announcing the opening for submissions of works for the new edition of FIMUCINEMA, the Festival’s Official Competition Section. This year, FIMUCINEMA celebrates its tenth edition and is using this anniversarty to change dynamic and broaden the award categories with a view to continue growing and faithfully representing the spectrum of composers in the audiovisual field. Thus, the categories that have made up the Competition field of FIMUCITÉ until now (Best Original Song, Best Original Score for Short Film, Best Original Score for Documentary and Best Original Score for Feature Length Fictional Film), will be joined by Best Original Score for Videogames. Another new aspect is the the awards will be of a monetary value, which will be presented to the composer of the winning pieces.


Creators the world over are called to take part in this important platform coordinated by Manuel Díaz Noda, which is one of FIMUCITÉ biggest initiatives to give visibility to new productions in the audiovisual field, and their composers. In this new edition, we welcome the participation of feature length fictional films, short films, documentaries and videogames which have been produced after January 1st 2020 and which have not been distributed previously theatrically or digitally in Spain. The competition rules are available on the Festival’s official website and the works can be submitted directly through the contact methods on the website itself or on Filmfreeway.
