The Holy Mountain is the kind of film we highly recommend whenever it’s playing in theaters. After all, a “sanctuary of 1,000 testicles” looks so much better on the big screen. And so, I’m happy to tell you that Alejandro Jodorowsky’s surrealist masterpiece is playing at East Williamsburg’s dine-in theater, Syndicated, at midnight this Friday and Saturday. But here’s something even more far out: The Knockdown Center, our favorite colossal arts venue in Ridgewood, just announced that it’ll be screening the film along with a new score by the venue’s music production manager, Adrianna Moschides.
Moschides, who’s also the owner of bass and techno label Loveless Records and a DJ by the name of Gooddroid, has her work cut out for her. The original soundtrack was in part a collaboration between Jodorowsky and jazz legend Don Cherry, and brilliantly incorporates elements of funk, gamelan, smooth jazz, spaghetti western, psychedelic rock, and sorrowful pan-flute music. There’s harps, there’s sitars, there’s even a Kraftwerk-esque song called “Fuck Machine.” Given Gooddroid’s Miami roots, we’re guessing she has something a little more deep-bass in mind. For an idea of what to expect, tune into her show, Loveless, on The Lot Radio, or listen to the most recent installment below.
You can get tix ($8) for the Sept. 21 screening here. If you’re looking for a quicker Jodo fix, Syndicated is showing the Chilean auteur’s new one, Endless Poetry, one last time tonight. We spoke to Jodorowsky about the autobiographical film (and also Trump) when it opened earlier this summer.
