The Moon Is Looking For Dead Things at IndieCork

As part of the TANK event at IndieCork Festival (Friday, October 14th, 8pm) Mick O’Shea (sound art) and Solamh Kelly (percussion) will play live to The Moon Is Looking For Dead Things,  an exclusive presentation of a sequence from my section of the work-in-progress collaborative feature film Homo Sapiens Project 200. Morbid and decadent, this dying movie just about manages to reach out towards one final sexual fantasy before the moon flies out of the sky. Starring Dean Kavanagh and Salomé’s fevered ghost. Live sound for film performance.
