James Williamson's 'Night Theme' Video Selected for 2017 San Francisco Dance Film Fest

James Williamson's "Night Theme" video was directed by Ben Estabrook & Heath Orchard and was choreographed by Meghan Horowitz. From an inauspicious melody written for and recorded on the 1970s album "Kill City" by Iggy Pop and James Williamson, "Night Theme" was given new life by this orchestral arrangement, contemporary choreography, and a modern take on psychedelic imagery.

The Stooges' guitarist and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer explains the origins of this new version of the track, "For 'Night Theme' I enlisted the help of Mark Culbertson, musician extraordinaire who had played contra-bass for me on the albums Ready to Die [Iggy & The Stooges] and Re-Licked [Williamson's solo album], to do the arrangement. He did an extraordinary job! I was able to find an incredible group of players called The Awesome Orchestra from Berkeley, CA under the direction of David Moschler to realize Mark's arrangement and I couldn't be happier with the results."

James Williamson and Deniz Tek's Acoustic K.O. EP is available on vinyl, digital and streaming formats.
