SLOW TAPE in Space

Maximilian Le Cain's Slow Tape

with live score on the night provided by
Kevin Tuohy/ New Air Chaos and
Liam Slevin/ deafLAMB

Wednesday 1st Sept 2010, 20.00 to 21.00 @ theSPACE Gallery
Top Floor, 7 South Mall, Cork City

The final event at the Cork Contemporary Projects art collective's SPACE gallery, now sadly closing, will be the projection of a new video of mine, accompanied by live sound from Kevin Touhy and Liam Slevin. As Cork-based readers might remember, this was the team that provided an extremely effective accompaniment to a projection of The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari a few months ago. And, as anyone who knows me is probably aware, I'm notoriously hard to please when it comes to scores for silent films.

Not that Slow Tape has much in common with Wiene's masterpiece. It's an almost purely textural work, a looping, videographic splurge (or, perhaps, visual drone) designed to welcome and create a space for the improvised sound. A new departure for me which only underlines how crucial sound is in structuring my work in general.
