Heart Of Data / Babel

Factory Floor were originally commissioned by London’s Science Museum to write a brand new live score for Fritz Lang’s 1927 silent cinematic landmark, "Metropolis" (see also: Jeff Mills' inspired version - ed). The 150 minute score was performed live at the Science Museum’s IMAX in April 2017, coinciding with the 90th anniversary release of "Metropolis" and as part of the acclaimed Robots exhibition and event series. "Heart of Data" and "Babel" are the first 12” releases on Factory Floor’s own imprint H/O/D Records.

An inspired six and half minute track, "Heart of Data" bears all the hallmarks of a Factory Floor record but as you’ve never heard them before. An animated modular synth groove sets in motion the atmospheric textures within the spacial arrangement. The b side "Babel" which traverses many scenes in the film, retains a transient meditative pulse in pursuit of space and time. Both bring together an emotive relationship between the machine like qualities of their instruments and visual images provided by Fritz Lang’s industrial masterpiece. Following the success of the London Science Museum event, Factory Floor’s reimagined "Metropolis" score was performed live at Sheffield’s Sensoria Festival in October 2017 and the recorded audio was showcased at the Brighton Film Festival at the Attenborough Centre for creative arts on November 2017. The H/O/D label art was designed by British artist Haroon Mirza, adapted by Sam Moore and Nik Void.
