A collaboration between Yorgos Dimitriadis, Louise Crawford and Stéphan Guéneau will take place on the 7th of December at 19:30 at ARTos Foundation in Cyprus, within the Moving Silence event.
Yorgos Dimitriadis will be performing a live soundtrack to a film made by Louise Crawford and Stéphan Guéneau.
Yorgos Dimitriadis uses drums, cymbals and microphones to compose in the moment sonic structures and landscapes, with the emphasis on timbre, sound colour, long durations, the hidden frequencies and overtones of cymbals, the other sounds of drums.
Crawford & Guéneau’s video is made up of a collection of disparate images, ‘video sketches’ dropped onto a black time line and sprinkled with animated sequences.
“The contemporary cinema could take back this expressive freedom” the Moving Silence’s members state. “Any visual style can profit from a sound language, by using advanced digital technologies as well as old analogue techniques. Live performances sustain and amplify the films as musicians can breathe new life into silent cinema, which inappropriately remained silent for such a long time.” Encouraging collaboration and exchange between musicians, artists and cinematographers, the Moving Silence platform, therefore, invites the Nicosia audience to new audiovisual experiences expressed through live improvisations and interpretations, where experimental image and sound are expected to meet in unusual and unexpected ways.
