Sound and Cinema: Past, Present and Future
Brown, L. (2020). Sound and Cinema: Past, Present and Future. London 22 Jan - 13 Feb 2020
Curation of a public exhibition and events programme spanning film, virtual reality, games, TV and sound celebrating diversity and creativity.
The launch night featured a performance from Unknown Devices, led by musician, professor and author David Toop using laptop computers, circuit bent electronics, turntables, power drills, Gameboys, homemade percussion and performance art practice alongside conventional instruments and voices – exploring the dynamics, technical and interpersonal demands of group improvisation, particularly in large, mixed-ability ensembles.
It also featured a fusion of live animation to a spontaneous score from Points of Entelechy, a loop-based, fully improvised audio-visual performance project by Lutfi Othman (audio) and Mario Radev (visual). The artists create spontaneous sonic and visual worlds through the act of live looping.
