with British Sea Power, eagleowl, Monoganon & Joe McAlinden
Lost Map are thrilled to be taking part in this year’s Glasgow Film Festival, co-curating a bill at the O2 ABC (formerly the ABC Regal) on Thursday 19th February 2015, for a night of live sonic cinema events exploring time and tide, sound and vision.
The night is headlined by our good pals British Sea Power (who played at our festival on Eigg back in 2010), who will be performing the score to Penny Woolcock’s evocative feature-length archive film, From The Sea To The Land Beyond. Charting a century of the British coastline through unique footage of factories, furnaces, piers, seaports and remote Scottish isles, this will be the first time the score has been performed in Scotland.
Support comes from our very own eagleowl, who will be providing a live soundtrack to the archive film Granton Trawler, Norman McLaren's Begone Dull Care and Mark Cousins's film Between Picture and Word.
Here's Bart from the band, with a some words from his mind ...
"Its very exciting to be sharing a stage with British Sea Power, who we've long been massive fans of, and always a pleasure to play with Monoganon. The programme for the event is great balance between celebrating the past, whilst looking to the future and creating something new and engaging for the audience."
Monoganon will open the evening with frontman John B McKenna’s haunting VHS backing track live performance - which some of you might have witnessed at the Insect Heroes album launch last year!
The night will also feature EDIT, a collaboration between musician Joe McAlinden and artists Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard (20,000 Days on Earth). Incorporating music and film, EDIT offers a journey of discovery that seeks out an emotional truth in this new work and includes a live vocal performance by McAlinden.
The show starts at 6pm,and goes on til 10pm - with Lost Map DJs at the CCA afterwards.
