Sergey Suokas, Aggie Peterson and Per Martinsen will perform their soundtrack to Vsevolod Pudovkin’s silent movie classic “Mother” live at the British Film Institute on London’s South Bank on Friday July 12th.
The performance is part of Noise of Art’s “100 years of Electronic Music”-series, celebrating the decade that has passed since Italian futurist Luigi Russolo presented his “A Manifesto for an Art of Noises”. Russolo also created a proto-synthesiser in 1914 and after WWI he started soundtracking early film in cinemas in Paris. This evening at BFI connects a century of film and electronic music.
In addition to the screening/performance of “Mother”, pioneering electronic act Coldcut have put new music to films from the Russolo era, while Noise of Art’s Ben Osborne adds music using recordings of Russolo’s own sounds. More info and tickets here.
