IFI AND BOTTLENOTE PRESENT
SOUND OF SILENTS
PART OF MUSICTOWN 2017
Sound of Silents presents a programme of short silent films accompanied by new improvised scores. The selection has a distinct German flavour and includes a newsreel purportedly documenting the Irish Rising of 1914; the first transatlantic flight by Irish and German pilots (1928); portraits of German-born artists Irina Brady (1943) and Imogen Stuart (1955); and scenes from the Aran Islands by ethnographer Heinrich Becker (1940s).
The music, curated by Shane Latimer of Bottlenote, will feature performances by Seán MacErlaine and Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh joined by musicians from the Ruhr area of Germany, saxophonists Julius Gabriel and Florian Walter, and electronic artist Achim Zepezauer.
