Pet Shop Boys - Battleship Potemkin: Wikipedia Album Entry
Battleship Potemkin is a 2005 album of electronic and orchestral music written by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe from Pet Shop Boys. The music on the album is performed by Pet Shop Boys and the Dresdner Sinfoniker. It was written to accompany the 1925 silent film The Battleship Potemkin by Sergei Eisenstein.
In April 2003, Philip Dodd, director of the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, approached Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe and suggested that they might write a new score for the film and perform it as a free concert in Trafalgar Square (Sept 12, 2004) as part of a series of events organised by the Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone.
