Baraka bustin' beats

It's time to put a little beat to some artsy film.

Tonight at midnight in the University Community Centre's McKellar Room, Western students are planning to show the movie Baraka but with a twist – they will create their own soundtrack for the film.

Mike Oliver, the disc jockey for the event, said he plans to put the film to some trip hop, hip hop with a little drum and bass. The power of some scenes in the film can be increased if put to different music, Oliver said.
