Archinoise #1, an evening of architecture film and music fusion, presented by M.A.D. Collective
Initiating a collaboration between contemporary film makers and musicians, M.A.D. COLLECTIVE create a platform for dialogue between sound and moving image at Christ Church Spitalfields.
An evening in two parts – the first showcases a series of experimental short films that each explore a unique experience of architecture, utilising a variety of film making concepts and techniques. The second half of the evening brings musicians from both classical and contemporary traditions together to play live improvised music alongside a second series of projected films. A Q&A will follow each section of the evening.
