The Establishing Shot: Upcoming - Mike Figgis - Film + Music Festival


Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Wednesday, September 15, 2010

Trumpeter/film director/composer Figgis continues his esoteric program of live music at Kings Place over this week. Expect guest appearances, multimedia presentations, film and music.


Wednesday 15 September
Sound, Music and Film
Film director Mike Figgis is fascinated by the powerful psychological effect of film scores on the drama. Tonight he demonstrates his ideas with a live mix of his film ‘Timecode’, changing the score and the mix to illustrate the amazing potential of the music.

Thursday 16 September
The Mike Figgis Theatre Group
Three multi media performances written by Mike Figgis. Each combines film with live performance and live music.

Redheugh, 1980
'The Airfield at Tangmere'; 'At Mrs Dyson’s'; 'Die Welle'; 'Ist er Das?'

Slow Fade (aka The House C4), 1982
'Opium'; 'Sexual Love'; 'Riga'; 'Slow Fades the Light'

Animals of the City, 1983
'This Hotel Room'; 'On Ellis Island'; 'I Have No Shadow'; 'Story of a Tragic Love'


Friday 17 September
Past, Present and Future: Rosey Chan and Friends
Rosey Chan on pianowith guests, including Mike Figgis
A haunting performance, featuring classically-trained pianist/performance artist Chan and Lebanese singer Hamden. Combining video projections that show Chan as both a girl and a 90-year-old woman, this will be a mesmerising audiovisual mix traversing jazz and classical sounds.

Saturday 18 September
The People Band
An evening with a difference. Performers from the 40-strong People Band will give a live concert in Kings Place Hall Two.

"My first exposure to free jazz came about through hearing and then performing with the People Band. This was in the early 70's. I have continued to play with the People Band since that time. The band is a loose collective but all of the original members still participate whilst still following a multitude of other interests (like myself). The band recorded (in the late 60's) an album that has recently been re-issued, produced by Charlie Watts of the Rolling Stones." Mike Figgis
