Colliding Lines return with Reanimation, their 2nd live soundtrack evening at The Rose Hill.
This month they explore the phantasmagoria of 1900’s sci-fi and fantasy films – the magic of hand-tinted films, retro futurism and early special effects, scored live by four different artists.
• Trip to the Moon / Voyage de la Luna, 1902.
• The Kingdom of the Fairies / Le Royaume des Fées, 1903.
• Wonderful Album / L'Album Merveilleux, 1905.
• The Tulips / Les Tulipes, 1907.
• The Frog / La Grenouille, 1908
• The Red Spectre / Le Spectre Rouge, 1907.
The programme features the work of film pioneers and stage magicians Georges Méliès and Segundo de Chomón, whose innovations in narrative and visual filmmaking are considered among some of the most influencial in film history.
Georges Kaplan Presents... are a musical duo hailing from London’s gnarled and twisting streets, who in all things take their cue from their leader Georges Kaplan. A man of infinite mystery, very little is known about Georges’ true identity save for his love of a hot tempo and a predilection for strong bourbon. Forever on the run, with only his wits to keep him alive he always knows how to stay ahead of the game. A hustler? A master manipulator? A mere shadow? No one can say, although those who claim to know him best simply marvel at his impeccable taste and incalculable talent in outwitting any would-be detractors.
Greenness are an indie psych-folk band featuring English guitarist, artist and producer Graham Pratt and French singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Cess Frangi. Their songs are a blend of the powerful and fragile, pitching intricate guitar melodies against awe-inspiring vocals. Live, the band create an immersive journey through use of various acoustic instruments, electronic instruments and field recordings. For Reanimation, the band rework select material from their second record, 'Cyclicity', released on August 17th.
