LUDS Write Night- 10th March 2017

Write Night, as the name suggests, is the bringing to life of written pieces for just one night each semester. This event is hosted and curated by the Liverpool University Drama Society, who write and perform a collection of original works.

Top 10 Film Soundtracks of All Time

  10. Tron (2010)  Composed by funky electro duo Daft Punk, these glitchy synthesised songs with a heavy bass perfectly reflect the sleek cityscape visuals of the alternate cyber universe that is Tron. For anyone who already appreciates the work of this helmet-clad pair, this soundtrack is a great marrying of the electronic roots of their music with the computer-game based concept for the film.                               9. Clockwork Orange (1972) Monte Cross revamps some classical pieces, giving them an electronic vibe in Stanley...
