Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein performing the music of Stranger Things
Saturday 7 April 2018 / Barbican Hall / 20:00
Tickets £18.50 - 25 plus booking fee

Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein, half of American experimental synth band S U R V I V E, take to the Barbican stage to perform music from Netflix original series Stranger Things on 7 April 2018. Dixon and Stein’s score for season one of the series won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Main Title Theme Music, as well two Grammy nominations. For Stranger Things’ latest series they have added new elements and styles of composition to support the continuing story. Stranger Things 2 – Original Netflix Series Soundtrack is available digitally via Lakeshore Records and Invada Records.

Dixon and Stein, both Texas natives, were born in the early 1980s when the inspirations for Stranger Things were being made. They met as teenagers and both gravitated towards the analogue, electronic tones of their childhoods. They formed the band S U R V I V E in 2009 along with Mark Donica and Adam Jones, since then the group have toured the U.S. and Europe, and recently released their second studio album, RR7349 (Relapse Records). Creators of Stranger Things, the Duffer Brothers, enlisted the talents of Dixon and Stein after hearing the band’s classic synths spun into distinctly modern sounds.

Stranger Things is a multi-award winning science fiction-horror web television series with a cast including actress Winona Ryder. Debuting in July 2016, series one centred on the disappearance of a young boy amid supernatural events occurring in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana. Series two will be released to much anticipation via Netflix on 27 October 2017.
