New master of electronic music Dan Deacon has signed on to score Francis Ford Coppola’s next film, Twixt Now And Sunrise, Coppola’s most recent venture into horror since 1992. Deacon’s distinct sound will also be used in another project with Coppola, which will be announced soon.

The film stars Val Kilmer playing a novelist, along with Bruce Dern, Elle Fanning and Ben Chaplin. Known for such films as The Godfather triology, Apocalypse Now, and Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Coppola is stepping away from making blockbuster films and venturing into more indie territory.

In addition to his new scoring venture, Deacon will play a string of shows with experimentalists So Percussion, and will debut his recent orchestral work with the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony.
