‘Spaceships Cost Too Much’ – An amazing film from Detroit’s Blair French will have it’s online premier as part of the line up for this weekend’s Edition 5 of the Chill Out Tent, coming live from 18:00 BST on Sunday, 30 August 2020. It’s a provocative, hallucinatory, art house trip, you won’t want to miss it…
The film explores the hearts, minds, and souls of three individuals meditating in an unbalanced world. Originally filmed in 2012-2013, it is scored with music from the excellent forthcoming Blair French long player ‘The Art of Us’ released on Rock Steady Disco on September 15, 2020.
On the line from Detroit Blair he gave us a personal flavour of what’s happening for him right now;
“We were recording last night on a roof overlooking Grand Boulevard, that’s the street to the UR building and past FIT distro, Moodymann, Tangent Gallery etc. Caught a big brother drone in the sky watching us, that was surreal. It was a much needed night with everything going on here. Thanks for including us in this special event. As the protests and awareness march through our country and beyond. Layers of vibrations turning tears to hope, as fears soak in bravery, we see courage grow from clay like soil. Two things I didn’t think I’d see in my lifetime: Detroit’s rebuilding and a global uprising. We’re watching the chess pieces move…”
We wish Blair, Peter and all the Detroit crew all the best and are really looking forward to their section of the weekend’s programming.
