SIMONSOUND

[no certificate]

Duration:120 mins

An evening of spaced out sound, 60’s sci-fi TV, short 16mm space films and multi projector light show in the stunning setting of Brighton’s 100 year old cinema.

Music and sound will be provided by The Simonsound (featuring Debbie Clare and Laura J Martin), the Intergalactic synthesiser duo whose debut album, ‘Reverse Engineering’ channels the pioneering electronics and mood music of the 60’s using vintage synthesisers, FX and ta...pe machines, and Laura J Martin who, armed with flute, mandolin and loop station, sings over her loops and beats, drawing inspiration from dramatic tales of Japanese folkore. DJ Format will be delving into his vaults and playing a selection of rare psych rock and library records.

Film screenings on the night will include Timelash - a trippy episode of 60’s sci-fi TV series UFO; Space Place – a 60’s psychedelic trip into space with electronic sound; and Kosmodron R. 1999, a wry comic Eastern European animation on the vicissitudes of space flight.

Ian Helliwell will be doing a full on multi-projector light show to accompany the live music.
