Initially commissioned by the Barbican Centre for their Silent Film and Live Music series, Music for Screen Tests features 11 original pieces performed live as one 54-minute session. The live soundtrack accompanied a 16mm film screening of Andy Warhol's Screen Tests in the venue's cinema space in February 2020.

From the Barbican:
Between 1964-66, Warhol would ask some visitors to the Factory to sit in front of his tripod-mounted 16mm Bolex camera, face forward, and hold still. They each sat for three minutes; the films that resulted are known as the Screen Tests.
The sitters’ responses to this ordeal, and their decisions about how to perform themselves for the camera, make these films hugely revealing. Some are reduced to weeping; some are overcome with self-consciousness; some meet the camera with an equal force of personality.
