Colliding Lines launch a new, bi-monthly night of live art, sound and vision, presenting experimental collaborations and post-label projects from select performers.
We begin with Reanimation: a live re-scoring of Soviet-era cartoons and surrealist animations by four different artists.
• The Glass Harmonica, 1968.
• Rusalochka (The Little Mermaid), 1968.
• Curious Alice, 1968.
• The Butterfly, 1972.
The programme features two shorts by master animator Andrei Khrjanovsky, as well as alternative tellings of Hans Christian Anderson's The Little Mermaid and Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland.
We introduce the following soundtrack artists:
Ingrid Plum uses her voice with extended technique, improvisation, field recordings and electronics to create layered soundscapes, spoken word and songs. Having performed and exhibited installation sound art and visual art since 2002, she creates work that sits between sound art, improvisation, multi-media installation, neo-classical and contemporary Nordic folk music.
Echo Trails are a female-fronted five piece based in London and Cambridge. Taking inspiration from the grooves of bands such as Portishead and Hidden Orchestra and blending these with post-rock textures, the band create minimalist, orchestral atmospheres and vivid post-folk noise.
Abi Palmer is a poet and experimental writer whose work encompasses page, performance, video, installation and immersive interactive games. For Curious Alice, Abi performs spoken word drawn from her current work ‘Sanatorium’ – a 10-month research project exploring the experience of intrusion & displacement for disabled bodies.
Andrea Salvatici, Derek Yau & David Harris (ex-Clorinde / Polbrone) create music that fluctuates between musical improvisation, sound exploration and evolving drone - contrasting effects, melodies that gradually destroy and decay, and combining acoustic instruments with digital processing. A founding member of Clorinde and Polbrone, Andrea Salvatici is accompanied by close collaborators Derek on cello and David on modular synthesizer.
The evening concludes with a feature performance from Echo Trails, performing songs from latest EP 'In Limbo' alongside as-yet unreleased new material.
