Sonic Cinema is thrilled to present an evening of recent films by Austrian audiovisual artists exploring the boundaries of perception. Through the concepts of visual music and synaesthesia –a neurological condition that causes a blending of the senses– these formally adventurous works blur the boundaries between the visual and sonic arts.
A group show of experimental film and video artists that explore the notion of before-and-after a memorable event in relation to their work. Does the “after” mirror the “before” or is the reflection completely different? Each artist responds to the question in a different way. This group screening reflects on a binary aspect of ‘before and after’ an event, trauma, pandemic, or “just” the passage of time, and the way it influences the cinematic narrative as well as the artist’s reading of the concept itself.
Celebrating the release of “Dirk Schaefer : Peter Tscherkassky, All the Soundtracks (2005–2021)” by purge.xxx, Sonic Cinema presents Peter Tscherkassky & Dirk Schaefer’s four collaborations to date: Train Again (2021); The Exquisite Corpus (2015); Coming Attractions (2010); Instructions for a Light and Sound Machine (2005); as well as Tscherkassky’s classic of avant-garde cinema Outer Space (1999).
Great triple-bill featuring compelling and immersive approaches to film projection from Japanese artist Makino Takashi and Unconscious Archives' Sally Golding – both solo and in a special duo collaboration also featuring Spatial – and solo percussion from American composer Nick Hennies, who'll be performing pieces by Peter Ablinger, John Cage and his own work.

Exploring the dual meaning of ‘mediation’ within performance – the physicality of interpretation, and the psychogeographic mode of ritual (intervention, ghost/shadow, chemical/hack, seance/spook and invocation as divergent themes).
The fleeting trick of light from the corner of the eye, the brief contact point of chemicals intertwining and reacting, ghosts trapped in the home movie archive, non-human sounds and bodily digressions – ephemerality as told through the body’s appearance/disappearance.
Malcolm Le Grice’s seminal expanded cinema and rarely seen Horror Film 1 from 1971 will be performed beside new contemporary live light sculpture from emerging artist Amy Dickson. Renowned artist Aura Satz presents a unique sonic sculpture from her treasure trove, Sally Golding performs her classic projection piece Face of An Other, and Britain’s most under rated and detestable, accidental comic thespian Sir Gideon Vein brings us some live TV.
