SOUND AND MUSIC

SCREENING & PERFORMANCE
'10ml I.V.' is an exploration of unrelenting increasing tension; like a python’s coils squeezing life into death.
In a flat above shops in anonymous south London, a well-off addict comes for his fix. But his dealer has been replaced by a middle-class white man. What’s the score? And who’s scoring what?
Alastair Mackenzie and Kobna Holdbrook Smith explore the competing values of risk and trust.

Written & Directed by Andrew Gillman http://andrewgillman.com/
Duration 15 min
Screen 16:9 , 1 protector HD , stereo sound
1-‘Alice expanded/expanded Alice’ is a performance around  ’Alice in Wonderland’, using film, digital and live video.
The piece explores Alice’s multiples personalities via projection and reprojection to create a complete mise en abymes of her image.
This piece will be performed by Pierre Bouvier Patron and Blanca Regina

'100F' by Ben Sheppee is a collaboration with Jude Greenaway to mark 10 years of the Yellow Machines label. A glitchy electronica soundscape interpreted and visualised with a minimalist tech look - published as a hidden track on the album ‘Archive’.
'Pinch of Peer'  John Cage published a collection of graphic notation techniques from the Fluxus movement. Sheppee digitised these, adapted variations, and animated to the classical electronica by Kettel ‘Sending Orbs’.

Format: HD , stereo sound
‘London’ by Chris Newman
Berlin-based Chris Newman’s video is a poetic and personal work shot on his last trip to London, when he presented a new composition for ensemble featuring pianist Tania Chen. A trip with Chen & Steve Beresford in a London cab is cut up with superpositions and an interesting mix of voices and soundtrack.
Format: Video, stereo sound

‘Elements‘  by Tasos Stamou,
“Elements” explores human experience in everyday urban rituals, in scenes that compose an anthology of  abstract short-stories. The scenes are primary focused in moments of non-events, while the camera is treated as a canvas of carefully composed tableaux, objective, yet not emotionally discharged of the human condition.
Duration: 15min
Format: DVD  4:3, stereo sound

AnXious Xmas
18th December 2013, 8pm,  Cafe Oto, Dalston, London
Blanca Regina + Sharon Gal + Steve BeresfordMundus InversusGregor Riddell+ Rob LewisThe Conspirators of Pleasure Poulomi Usurp Desai + Simon Underwood)The Material Studies Group Do dazzling, flashing lights in the shape of reindeers make you anxious? Does the sound of carols fill you with dread rather than joyous anticipation? Would you rather hide under a stone than face the stampede of the shopping hordes? You are not alone.After the huge success of last year’s event, Café Oto welcomes back the AnXious Xmas artists for another spectacular evening of joyful noise – the perfect tonic to soothe your stressed soul at this hectic time of year. AnXious Xmas is an irreverent celebration of all things vexatious about the build-up to the most wonderful time of the year. Performances ranging from meditative to humorous to cathartic will provide a valve to release tensions.Visitors’ Christmas anxieties will be turned into music in an impromptu improvisation by vocalists Blanca Regina and Sharon Gal, with Steve Beresford on piano. Luke Goaman-Dodson’s Mundus Inversus will sing praises to the winter solstice with post-rock including Tuvan throat-singing and medieval tones. Gregor Riddell and Rob Lewis will steady jittery nerves with an ambient cello and electronics performance. The Conspirators of Pleasure will intensify the treatment with a sound collage ranging from melancholic drones to noisy chaos, created with the help of an amplified sitar and a range of sonically twisted toys and machines. Finally the Material Studies group will invite everyone to join in a collective improvisation rite, where objects carrying festive associations will be relieved of their symbolic meanings and instead be treated as materials with which to make joyful noise.AnXious Xmas is part of a programme of events leading up to Anxiety 2014 – a London wide arts festival taking place in June next year that explores the concepts of anxiety and the way they are lived, perceived and represented by individuals and communities. Anxiety 2014 will engage the public in a positive dialogue about mental health, challenging the stigma and discrimination that often surround it. The festival will showcase a dynamic programme of visual art, film, performance, music, dance, theatre and talks, in a number of venues and spaces across the city, from grass-roots community centres to London’s leading cultural and academic organisations.Blanca Regina www.whiteemotion.comSharon Gal www.sharon-gal.comSteve Beresford www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_BeresfordMundus Inversuswww.facebook.com/mundusinversusGregor Riddellwww.gregorriddell.co.ukThe Conspirators of Pleasure www.usurp.org.uk/event/the-conspirators-of-pleasure-at-the-resound-sound-art-festival-2013The Material Studies Group www.matthiaskispert.com/sound/material-studiesMental Health Foundationwww.mentalhealth.org.uk

    Do dazzling, flashing lights in the shape of reindeers make you anxious? Does the sound of carols fill you with dread rather than joyous anticipation? Would you rather hide under a stone than face the stampede of the shopping hordes? You are not alone.

    After the huge success of last year’s event, Café Oto welcomes back the AnXious Xmas artists for another spectacular evening of joyful noise – the perfect tonic to soothe your stressed soul at this hectic time of year. AnXious Xmas is an irreverent celebration of all things vexatious about the build-up to the most wonderful time of the year. Performances ranging from meditative to humorous to cathartic will provide a valve to release tensions.

    Visitors’ Christmas anxieties will be turned into music in an impromptu improvisation by vocalists Blanca Regina and Sharon Gal, with Steve Beresford on piano. 

    Luke Goaman-Dodson’s Mundus Inversus will sing praises to the winter solstice with post-rock including Tuvan throat-singing and medieval tones. 

    Gregor Riddell and Rob Lewis will steady jittery nerves with an ambient cello and electronics performance. 

    The Conspirators of Pleasure will intensify the treatment with a sound collage ranging from melancholic drones to noisy chaos, created with the help of an amplified sitar and a range of sonically twisted toys and machines. 

    Finally the Material Studies group will invite everyone to join in a collective improvisation rite, where objects carrying festive associations will be relieved of their symbolic meanings and instead be treated as materials with which to make joyful noise.

    AnXious Xmas is part of a programme of events leading up to Anxiety 2014 – a London wide arts festival taking place in June next year that explores the concepts of anxiety and the way they are lived, perceived and represented by individuals and communities.
