#4 SHACKLETON meets LYRICAL NITRATE

SHACKLETON

One of the most relevant names from the first and second wave of UK’s dubstep scene, Shackleton is renowned for his productions as much as for his live performances. Shackleton’s approach to electronic music is strikingly unique, blending heavily processed beats to make complex poly-rhythmic percussive patterns and using melodies and scales that are uncommon in Western music.
This premiere event marks Shackleton’s first ever re-scoring project and live audiovisual performance.

Peter Delpeut’s LYRICAL NITRATE

Dutch filmmaker Peter Delpeut is among Europe’s most respected contemporary experimental filmmakers.
LYRICAL NITRATE consists of clips from various silent films printed on decaying film stock originally part of the Desmet Colletion, creating an abstract collage of frames and clips which compose a poetic mediation on cinema and on the fleeting nature of human existence itself.
This tribute to early cinema, constructed from restored colour-tinted nitrate films in different stages of deteriorations, has been reviewed as “the work of a poet” by The New York Times and awarded internationally since its release in 1991.
