Fri 14 October 2016, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
A selection of archive films of rural Norfolk and Suffolk from the East Anglian Film Archive will be brought to life by original live soundtracks as part of this year's Norwich Sound & Vision festival.
Part of the BFI Britain on Film project.
Alex Carson & Wooden Arms
Alex Carson is a composer, musician and member of Wooden Arms, a contemporary quintet who draw from Alternative, Classical, and Trip-Hop music. He will be composing an original score and performing it live with members of Wooden Arms as part of this year’s festival.
Reference points that run consistently through the Broads canon are repetition, drone and rich reverbs, having drawn comparisons with artists as diverse as Mogwai, Broadcast and Max Richter. Broads’ set at NS&V will incorporate brand new material alongside re-purposings of existing pieces.
For NS&V (and most other live performances), Ferguson will be joined by longtime collaborator Mark Jennings (Sukoshi, EPIA) on live synths and triggers.
Sink Ya Teeth
Formed at the tail end of 2015 from a desire to create “songs that you can dance to”, the pair have coupled the uniquely unsettling vocals of ex-Girl In A Thunderbolt Maria Uzor with the heavy bass lines of ex-Kaito Gem Cullingford to form a powerful and mesmerising two-piece, minimal in sound, but with a primal ferociousness that reflects the bands’ name.
