In December 2011 it was announced that LOCOG had appointed Underworld, the British electronic music duo, as Music Directors of the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony. Underworld’s Rick Smith and Karl Hyde had previously worked with film-maker Danny Boyle on film soundtracks such as ‘Trainspotting’, ‘The Beach’ and ‘Sunshine’, and most recently on the Olivier-nominated music for ‘Frankenstein’ at the National Theatre.
Starring a cast of more than 10,000 performers, the theme of the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony was inspired by The Tempest, the dream of Caliban - ‘Be not afeard the isle is full of noises’. ‘The Isles of Wonder’ will not only feature newly-composed music by Underworld, but also choirs, orchestras, vocalists and musicians alongside the chimes of a specially-commissioned 23-ton bell. The largest harmonically tuned bell in the world, it will be rung at 9pm on 27 July to mark the formal start of the Opening Ceremony.
