Joshua Light Show Create Psychedelic Installation Inspired by ‘Inherent Vice’ Soundtrack

The Joshua Light Show, who have been creating psychedelic light shows for almost fifty years, take inspiration from Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice, and specifically the soundtrack by Jonny Greenwood, for their latest installation–now on display in London’s Ace Hotel.

Says the Joshua Light Show, “To my ears, [Greenwood’s score] evokes Bernard Herrmann’s best scores for Hitchcock, full of classic mystery and intrigue, and in many ways helps remind the Inherent Vice audience that, behind the haze of marijuana smoke, we are essentially watching a film noir. The movie itself is gorgeous, and captures the period of early ’70s Los Angeles so well. It makes complete sense that Ace Hotel pegged us to create a more abstract work of art that ties into the aesthetics of the Inherent Vice world, and Greenwood’s music in particular.”
