The Third Edition Festival for Other Music will hold two day time screening sessions at Klarabiografen, Kulturhuset Stadsteatern with two British film-makers who’s work frequently turns to music for inspiration and as core subject matter.
On Friday we will host a double bill of films by Luke Fowler — his recent portrait of Canadian musician Martin Bartlett (‘Electro Pythagoras’ from 2017) and his earlier widely acclaimed film on Cornelius Cardew and the Scratch Orchestra — ‘Pilgrimage From Scattered Points’.
On Sunday morning we show four films by Beatrice Gibson — including Agatha (2012) — a psychosexual sci-fi about a planet without speech based on a dream had by the radical British composer Cornelius Cardew and three more recent films which all use the William Gaddis novel ‘JR’ as their point of departure whilst taking in Stockhausen, child capitalists and radical experiments in musical pedagogy.
On Friday 10th of February, Olivia Block and Sarah Hennies will be giving a free public talk about their respective work/practice at Kungliga Musikhögskolan (KMH) between 1—3pm in room 1E207.
For new visitors to KMH, take the main entrance and walk all the way through the foyer, past the restaurant and then turn right…
