I’ve been playing a lot of vinyl from the collection this week – as well as wallowing in Talking Heads I’ve been reappraising Yello – was it really 1981....
Managed to see the wonderful film – Jesus Henry Christ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1393742/ and spent most of it beautifully distressed – a gorgeous looking film exploring the idea of childhood – you will weep.
Caught the latest faster than sound event at Snape Maltings is a site specific installation called nocturnal. http://www.aldeburgh.co.uk/events/britten-centenary-weekend-faster-sound-nocturnal It’s a very beautiful piece using a camera obscura to show a film twice. It’s on till next week if you’re passing it’s worth a look/listen.
Already bought tickets for the next faster than sound event in February Place: Occupation. http://www.aldeburgh.co.uk/events/place-occupation and am already looking forward to it, especially the new commissions.
The New Wolsey Studio is showing the latest work by Robin Brooks Britten’s Got Talent http://www.wolseytheatre.co.uk/shows/brittens-got-talent/ its very funny and has an irreverent tone that picks up some of the interesting lesser known traits of Benjamin Britten I saw the read through so am intrigued to see how the music and songs have been integrated.
