For BAGT, David Leister has assembled a programme of short 16mm films dealing with sound and the senses. Programme includes a selection of artist’s films and an archive film dealing with the ‘science’ of sound. Programme is approximately 30 minutes. Films will include:
16mm 3 minutes Leister/ Harris 2018
A film study of coloured pencils where the motion and spectrum of the actual pencils generate the sound frequency. An optical illusion of a colour chart in motion. A work in progress.
‘Science in the Orchestra’
16mm 12 minutes 1950
An archive film from the Kino Club Library, COI Realist Film Unit
An orchestra is assembled in order to analyse the wave frequency of individual instruments, to sometimes amusing effect.
16mm 3 minutes David Leister 2017
Actions sometime speak louder than words in this cryptic re-appropriation of 16mm footage. A film where you need to read between the sight lines.
3.30" 16mm, black & white, optical sound Lucy Harris 2006
Located in a proscribed area of London Sideways explores the shadows of surrounding buildings to construct a secondary city landscape. By inverting the urban environment, the camera searches and reveals traces that commonly go unnoticed, creating forms from light and dark. Detailed surfaces and textures of the city’s fabric create a filmed drawing with a musical structure exposing transitory spaces.
‘Music For A While’
16mm, BW, 4’40” Oliver Bancroft 2012
A reflective filmic elegy to the overlapping sounds that rise and fall around us. These sounds, seemingly visibly manifest by a breeze distracting the singer’s hair, remain happily abstruse to the woman as she sings along to her private orchestra. For the audience these auditory tremors mingle with her voice, creating a hybrid soundscape of the orchestrated or trained, and the random by-products of civic motion.
