Series: City University London Concert Series
Partner event in assocation with Digital Shoreditch
A concert of new pieces for live music and video, by composers from the City University MA in Composing for Moving Images using a wide range of technical procedures for contemporary composition.
Featuring: Antonio Ballestin, Anneli Bentler, Christopher Corcoran, Maja Schriver, Felipe Senna.
We also welcome a set by the London Foley Ensemble, formed in 2012 to explore the idea of 'performing Foley'. Inspired by Youtube demonstrations and a fascination with Foley's illusory power, the project playfully deconstructs the idea of films as a fixed audiovisual 'texts'.
The group 'performs' the sounds of footsteps, running water, machinery, and so forth live on stage, providing a kind of unstable, hyper-real sound track to a screened projection. A synthesis of screened image and performed sound can be sensed fleetingly, but more often the interest lies in 'laying bare' the artifice of film sound.
