The Festival opens on Friday 7 September with a collaborative event between the HFF and the Live Cinema Foundation. The Live Cinema Foundation is a new Hackney based organisation that supports the resentation, development and publication of emerging digital culture that exist at the intersection between film, music and the performing arts. For this special one off event it has joined forces with HFF to co-curate a night of audio-visual delights that celebrates local artists operating in this field.

Scanner performing Unto The Edges

Unto The Edges is a performance of sound and image. It is like the delicate movement of a watch spinning through space. Microscopic clicks, wood blocks and everyday sounds are painted over rumbling, dark canvases. Ultimately, by puling himself on the line Scanner manages to inject a form of music that is often distant and impersonal with warmth, human frailty and humour.» The Guardian Newspaper’

The Light Surgeons performing LDN-REDUX

LDN-REDUX is a multichannel audio visual performance explores the landscape and architecture of London through a combination of live video
remix and live electronic musical score. The piece paints an anthropomorphic portrait of London which encourages its audience to contemplate the city as a living organism. In parallel with this kaleidoscopic view of the every day life, the performance seeks to explore the city as a complex structure through its relationship with a more hidden landscape of digital information. The resulting audio visual journey transports its audience through this sprawling metropolis to reveal its human activities as an abstract dance over a 24-hour cycle.

Scanone live A/V set

Director, Editor, Sound Designer and Label boss of Yellow Machines, Jude Greenaway aka Scanone is a London-based Audio Visual artist who has been producing, performing and releasing music for well over a decade. In that time he has managed to develop a sound that skirts around the lunatic fringes of a myriad of underground genres, from bass-heavy electronics to glitched-up cinematic IDM. For this performance he will be showcasing some fresh new material from his forthcoming DVD compilation and new unheard / seen cinematic audio visual works with music from himself and the Yellow Machines label.

Blanca Regina and Matthias Kispert performing Banquet.

Banquet – Live Cinema Performance mixes sound and visual material collected by the artists together with appropriated footage from advertising, to create a poetic investigation of food and its manifold cultural relevances. If the circumstances permit, the artists will even prepare some of the stuff live on stage for the audience to enjoy during and after the show!
