Factory Floor was originally commissioned by curator Chris Bell of London's Science Museum to write a live score for Fritz Lang's 1927 silent cinematic landmark, Metropolis. Widely regarded as a pioneering work of science fiction, Metropolis depicts a dystopian future where a city's downtrodden, exploited underclass of workers secretly plot a revolt. The 150-minute brand new score was first performed at the Science Museum's IMAX on April 28th 2017, coinciding with the 90th anniversary release of Metropolis and as part of the acclaimed Robots exhibition and event series. Following the success of the London Science Museum event, Factory Floor took to the studio to record the score in it's entirety. Mixed by Nik Void, except for "Heart Of Data" and "Babel" which were mixed by award-winning producer Marta Salogni. The box set includes the entire 2.5 hours of the reimagined score on four 12" records. Artwork by British artist Haroon Mirza adapted and arranged by Nik Void in collaboration with illustrator Sam Moore.
