Here’s the programme, we hope it’s kinda unlike much you’ve seen before. But above all it’s an experience, especially for those who know that there are possibilities for film beyond narrative cinema, for sound beyond tunes and who want to be inspired, enriched or confounded by a night out.

Ken Jacobs & Eric La Casa

Abstract, flickering forms. A kind of celestial examination of tiny detail and uncanny motion, or tricks of the eye, or maybe even just the phenomenology of the eye, what it can see and understand in time. All grounded within the sounds of everyday life, the bustle of open spaces, pissed off car park attendants, the thrum of ventilation ducts.

Andrew Lampert

I’ll try and tell you, although I wouldn’t want to spoil it: a sort of quasi-theatrical, multi-projector and possibly slightly chaotic, (at least in appearance), investigation of audiences’ expectations.
An autobiography, and a big fiction maybe involving 35mm, 16mm, 8mm, video projection, roving mics, string; or maybe not, I’m not sure…

Bruce McClure

Bruce turns projectors into instruments; he doesn’t project film, he misuses it. His bastardised 16mm projectors cut B&W loops into a thrumming 3D riot of perceptual phenomenon in colour, motion and sound. Maybe it’s noise music for the eyes, burnt on to your retina.

Shutter Interface: Paul Sharits

Paul Sharits’ incredible Shutter Interface is an expanded cinema piece which creates a series of machinegun bursts of chromatic relationships and visual harmonics in an overwhelming montage, intended as “a 3D metaphor of the space of the brain in an epileptic state, brought under control and harmonized.”

La Cellule d’intervention Metamkine

Using eight projectors, Metamkine manipulate and combine beams of multiple images, ghosts of old films, abstract glimpses, often developed, solarised and burnt as they pass through the projector, in the midst of an electro-acoustic sound field of tape loops, analogue synthesizers and amplified objects. What’s not to love?

Kjell Bjørgeengen, Keith Rowe & Philipp Wachsmann

An immersive environment in which sound is looped through oscillators, computer, violin, a radio, guitar pick-ups and specially constructed video amps to create dense flickering images and colour fields that play with your persistence of vision.

Light Trap: Greg Pope

With Andrew Lampert, Christophe Auger, Xavier Quérel and Jérôme Noetinger

In Light Trap film loops are abraded with sandpaper and scratched by gem polishing drills as they pass through projectors in each corner of the room. Out of a dark haze, shafts of lights are picked out, as the emulsion is scratched from the surface of the film. And simultaneously, out of the black silence, noise and audible scratches bloom into a bright drone. It’s not really an installation, or like a normal performance, it’s just an experience of real beauty.
