Reanimation: Metaphors on Vision | LONDON
Colliding Lines return with Reanimation, our monthly live soundtrack series hosted at New River Studios. Each month we invite a diverse line-up of musicians and sound artists to re-score, re-interpret and re-imagine a programme of short animations, each month curated around a different theme and era.
For our final Reanimation of the season, we host an evening of kaleidoscopic visions and non-narrative storytelling inspired by visionary avant garde cinematographer Stan Brakhage.
The work of Brakhage and his methodologies are widely studied and profoundly influential. All silent, his films popularised such techniques as painting directly onto negatives, physically distressing film, in-camera editing, collaging and multiple exposures. Both abstract and deeply personal, Brakhage’s work pioneered a new form of first person, lyrical cinema – or “visual music” – viewing the goal of cinema to liberate the eye itself, to create the act of seeing.
We wish to explore the role sound plays in constructing narratives from the abstract, in creating the stories that shape our vision. We are delighted for our season finale to invite the following artists to our stage:
