SUBLIMINAL IMPULSE REVUE X
We’ve hit double figures.
8.30pm // SCISSORGUN are David Clarkson and Alan Hempsall. They will be writing some new ideas.
9.00pm // AFTERLIFE A short film by Howard Walmsley
Afterlife is a meditation on our relationships with objects that have all undertaken a journey of migration. By intercutting and juxtaposing antiquities with contemporary artefacts, the film explores how when we make, own and use objects, they have meaning and potential for agency and evocation; while when we view them in cultural settings, they acquire altered significance.
Made in collaboration with the Egyptology Department at The Manchester Museum and the Sue Ryder Charity Shop, the film is located in parallel environments where lost, found or separated objects are encountered.
The soundtrack is presented as an intermittent radio broadcast, where readings from the Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead are interrupted by fragmented ghostly accounts of memories, emotional connections, possession and loss.
The exploratory film acts as a provocation, blurring boundaries between the locations and leading the audience to ask questions about their own relationships with cultural and consumer objects. What and where is a ‘museum’?
9.25pm // SEYPIEN
Seypien is the future.
9.50pm // JOIN REVPORL AT POET’S CORNER
10:00pm // MINDCRIME CAFE is a fresh collaboration from guerrilla music and visual technologists, Jaydev Mistry and Marizu Okereke.
Wrangling an arsenal of home built and bastardised technology, they will be inviting the audience to accompany them on a journey across contorted landscapes.
Jaydev Mistry is a guitarist, percussionist and music technologist. He has designed and built an augmented guitar which is populated with various electronic sensors that allow him to coax intricate, lush and evolving musical soundscapes via deep processing and haptic control.
Marizu Okereke will be providing the visual component of this collaboration. Inspired by the abstract purity of visual synthesis from the early 1970’s, he will be working with live voltage controlled visuals to conjure mercurial, serpentine landscapes in resonance with the sonic journey.
