Master of Horror John Carpenter in concert at MTELUS

Montreal, Tuesday, October 3, 2017 It’s Halloweeeeeen (soon)! On Monday, November 13 at 8 p.m., the legendary director and “Master of Horror” John Carpenter will be visiting MTELUS as part of his Anthology Tour, Movie Themes 1974–1998. It is behind his keyboard and with 5 musicians that we will find him on stage. Tickets for this concert of the Jazz All-Year Round series presented by TD and the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal are already on sale.

Legendary director of a dozen cult classics, Carpenter also composes most of the music for his films. The minimalist, hypnotic aural ambience of Halloween, Christine, Jack Burton, Escape From New York and Assault on Precinct 13 is as indelible as the visual signature: timeless pieces that Carpenter brings to the stage in an anthology of his greatest work, all of it accompanied by projections that plunge us into the dark heart of the genius of the “Master of Horror”.
