2024 marks the 10 year anniversary of Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi masterpiece Interstellar. To celebrate this milestone, Roger Sayer – the organist who collaborated with Hans Zimmer on the film’s beloved score – is to tour ‘Interstellar 10’, a unique concert showcasing music from the film. And what better place to experience this magnificent event than the extraordinary St Mary Redcliffe Church, the home of “Britain’s finest organ”, in the city of Bristol.
Ellie Bowes, St Mary Redcliffe’s Visitor Services & Commercial Manager, said “we are delighted to host Roger Sayer, the chief organist who worked alongside Hans Zimmer to create the revolutionary soundtrack back in 2014. As part of this concert, Roger will be discussing crafting the soundtrack with Zimmer as well as performing arrangements from the film on our world class organ”.
On the power of the instrument, Zimmer commented: ‘There’s something very human about (the organ) because it can only make a sound with air, and it needs to breathe. On each note you hear the breath, you hear the exhale.’
Set in a dystopian future where humanity is embroiled in a catastrophic blight and famine, Interstellar follows a group of astronauts who travel through a wormhole near Saturn in search of a new home for humankind. The film starred Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, and was nominated for five Academy Awards.
