16mm INDUSTRIAL FILMS // INDUSTRIAL MUSIC

Dead Technology Night!

A celebration of media machines of times past! Witness the analog & mechanical sound musings of Igloo Martian, Purity of Essence, Jonathan Ray, Prabjit Virdee & Eric Schlappi each accompanying a mystery 16mm film. EV has provided each musician with merely the title and length of a “non-art” film… come marvel as they respond in real time before your very eyes & ears! The films are drawn from discarded educational and industrials archive at EV and span the gamut of esoteric and practical themes. An event of HEAVY synesthesia not to be missed!!

Man With A Movie Camera with live musical score by Jimmy Carr!

Jimmy Carr & friends present a live score to Dziga Vertov’s masterwork Man With A Movie Camera. Recently voted the most important non-fiction film ever made by Sight & Sound Magazine, Man With A Movie Camera shows 24 hours in a single day of a Russian city. It took Vertov four years to film this day, and he worked in three cities: Moscow, Kiev and Odessa. His wife Yelizaveta Svilova supervised the editing from about 1,775 separate shots and the cinematography was by his brother, Mikhail Kaufman. Vertov felt film was locked into the tradition of stage plays, and it was time to discover a new style that was specifically cinematic-movies should move with the speed of our minds when one is free-associating, or with the speed of a passionate musical composition. Multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire Jimmy Carr brings his captivating musical machine-age musings to the live scoring of this endlessly fascinating film!

Blood Red Italian Horror: SUSPERIA !!!

 Blood Red Italian Horror: SUSPERIA !!!

Dario Argento’s Susperia with a live performance soundtrack by Eric Schlappi

Eric Schlappi will be presenting a live tribute to Goblin by covering and interpreting their original soundtrack to Suspiria with a full band of acoustic and electric instruments, analogue synthesizers and WITCHES. Tonight re-experience Susperia, the landmark horror fantasy from cult director Dario Argento- dubbed the Italian Hitchcock for his mastery of suspense. Jessica Harper plays a dancer at a German ballet school where witches prowl the corridors. The famous opening 20 minutes of this Snow White fairy tale (by way of Thomas De Quincey’s hallucinatory Confessions of an Opium Eater) are an unforgettable experience, and the whole film is a stunning combination of menacing Grand Guignol atmosphere, dazzling colours, gory violence, lush décor and pounding live remixing of the Goblin soundtrack.
