Preview: 13 Most Beautiful…Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests
Dean and Britta‘s 13 Most Beautiful…Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests sets music to the screen tests of some of the best-known members of Warhol’s Factory crew, including Billy Name, Nico, Lou Reed and Edie Sedgwick.
The idea behind 13 Most Beautiful… is somewhat reminiscent of John Cale’s Eat/Kiss, a magisterial and deeply moving musical accompaniment to the eponymous Warhol films. The Andy Warhol Museum and the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust commissioned Dean & Britta to write these soundtracks, and togther with the museum, they developed the multimedia performance that you’ll see at Live Arts this fall. In the meantime, you can watch this preview of the 13 Most Beautiful… DVD.
