EFS: Recent Transmissions - Live

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 KellyDanny McCarthyIrene MurphyMick O’Shea, David Stalling and invited guest performer cellist Eimear Reidy.
Experimental Film Society is an international film collective based in Dublin that is notably at the centre of a new wave of Irish experimental cinema. Members take an exploratory approach to filmmaking, foregrounding mood, atmosphere, visual rhythms, the interplay of sound and picture, and the nature and subjectivity of the image. Participating filmmakers: Rouzbeh RashidiVicky Langan & Maximilian Le CainMichael HigginsAtoosa Pour HosseiniDean KavanaghJann ClavadetscherÉmmsen Jafari and Jason Marsh.
In partnership with Cork Film Centre.
