Recent Transmissions: Strange Attractor (live sound) / Experimental Film Society (undead images) 6-8pm, Saturday February 25th St. Peter’s Church, North Main St., Cork.
A durational, improvised live performance by Strange Attractor will take place in a space activated and transfigured by multiple projections of Experimental Film Society moving imagery. The filmmakers envision life on earth as if picked up by alien cameras and minds, and transmitted back across the universe – where Strange Attractor are ready and waiting to tune in and respond. The ensuing communion between “the finest experimental improv in the country at present” (Bernard Clarke, RTÉ Lyric FM) and “the most active, prolific and intrepid group of experimental filmmakers working in Ireland today” (aemi: artists and experimental moving image) promises to generate an unworldly intensity.
Strange Attractor is a multi-dimensional, collaborative venture that experiments with sound, movement, technology, combined media, text and found objects. Members Anthony Kelly, Danny McCarthy, Irene Murphy, Mick O’Shea, David Stalling and invited guest performer cellist Eimear Reidy.
