Word Associations

Various Artists Guy Sherwin John Smith

A programme of discontinuity between narration, text and image. Including Manual Saiz’s employment of John Malkovich’s Spanish dubbing double and Peter Rose’s absurdly hilarious concrete poetry subtitling chaos.

So Is This

Michael Snow

Investigate film as language, via the language of film reduced to the basic units of film and language. A film as text in which each frame is a single word.

Film Programme: Bleu Shut

A kind of audience activating, structured film guessing game in the manipulation of time, sound and image. “At 11:15, weiners. At 21:05, pornography. At 23:30, a duet. Watch the Clock.”

Andrew Lampert with Steve Beresford, Okkyung Lee & Mark Saunders

Andrew Lampert Okkyung Lee Steve Beresford

A performance for projectionist, musicians and audience, which plays with references to Oscar Levant and Gershwin: apparently a series of small doses of chaos.

The Bohman Brothers

The Bohman Brothers

Quintessentially British, The Bohman Brothers’ music is a home-made and DIY conflux of some of the most virulent strains of experimental music.

Rhodri Davies & Terry Day

Rhodri Davies Terry Day

Terry is one of the most entertaining and unpredictable musicians in the London free improvising music scene. Rhodri Davies extends his instrument under a battery of techniques creating sound colours and textures quite alien to the harp.

Inferno Quiz Show

Taku Unami

Cardboard boxes, metal guitar, critical homage, attempts to describe things you can’t describe. A one-man Grand Guignol school play.
