The last few months I've been working on a new film commissioned by Filthy Lucre for the event LINGUA IGNOTA themed on imagined languages; my interpretation of the divine visions of German nun Hildegard von Bingen. My film will be musically accompanied entirely by a vocalist and synthesiser. The event is this coming Saturday the 24th of February at Hackney Showroom. Tickets Available Online.
It was a challenge to make the film (as are all films) especially in the early stages as I conceptualised with my research on Hildegard's prolific and creative life many hundreds of years ago. In particular the task of visualising these visions which resulted in the creation of fresh language, paintings, science and music felt very daunting. I've aimed to give the audience a sensory experience and offer narrative moving through the stages of the visions.
Come and see the results of my work this Saturday and a night of music you won't hear anywhere else in the country, let alone London! Photo prints from my previous Filthy Lucre film commission which premiered in New York in October 2017 and earlier in the year won an Experimental Award entitled Lost In The Nameless City will be on sale at the event. They can be purchased online as merchandise on their website too.
Thanks for the support and reading this blog. See you on Saturday.
