ELSE – Neither in the Time

This Sunday, the 25th April  it’s Edition #13 of the Chill Out Tent and the second section of the show will feature ELSE, The East London Sound Ensemble. Join us on Mixcloud Live at 17:45 BST

They describe themselves as ‘sound artists, composers and musicians from different backgrounds where we explore new ideas in sound and music by merging the diverse cultural elements in an innovative way. We all come from different backgrounds but we all share an interest in forming an intercultural musical language with using various instruments and electronics in a hybrid way. We are after exploring and producing different sounds and create new music.’

We will be sharing a film of a performance called ‘Neither in time / Nor entirely out of it’

It takes its concept and inspiration from a Turkish poem by Ahmet Hamdi Tanpinar. Tanpinar is widely regarded as one of the most important representatives of modernism in Turkish literature. An English transcription of the poem can be found below:

I’m neither in the time
Nor entirely out of it
I am in an unbreakable stream of
a monolithic, wide moment.

With the colour of a strange dream
Every shape seems paralysed
Even a feather flying in the wind
not as light as me.

My head grinds the silence,
like a mill infinitely wide
Inside of me – has reached its desires,
A coatless and cloakless dervish

The world became an ivy,
I sense its roots within me.
Blue, a light that is so blue
I am swimming inside of it

Programme:

Love Forgotten – A Film by A Man Called Adam

As part of our Edition #12 of the Chill Out Tent we’re honoured to be screening a preview of a new film from A Man Called Adam – ‘Love Forgotten‘ is a visual companion to the ‘Love Forgotten Oddities & Rarities Part 1 & 2’ two retrospective ‘mixtape’ albums from the band.

This is how Sally Rodgers describes the development of the film…

‘Just as we’ve been mining our audio archives for interesting work to revisit, rework and release on our Oddities and Rarities collections, we also looked at the visual media we’ve created over the years. We documented a lot of the crazy experimental work we did in our ‘Big Shed’ studio in Cornwall, our mini tour of China in 2006, a private appointment in the media archive at Arts et Métier in Paris – in fact, wherever we went we usually had a camera with us and we made films for installation pieces or just because… It’s interesting to look at it all now because most was shot in the pre-Instagram era. We’re rarely in the shots, the camera is always pointing outwards. In this excerpt from the film there’s footage from the Quarry behind our house in Cornwall, some of the digital experiments we undertook, a travelogue from China, cityscapes and Tai Chi sessions shot from the backs of tour buses or from rooms on the 28th and 56th floors of sky-scraping hotels. The film here for the title track Love Forgotten uses footage shot by my friend Marvin Clarke during Lockdown 1.0 in 2020. He was delivering for a food charity and I asked him to shoot the empty London streets from his dashboard. It’s a remarkable bit of film documentary and Steve processed it through one of his custom Max patches to make it even more surreal. We realised that we don’t approach visual media like film directors might, we’re sonic artists and I think we approached these images with that sensibility. Using a collage of formats and media – mini-DV, mobile phones, homemade processing systems and hand-drawn animation – we worked with the visual material as we would with audio. Layering, taking away and remixing elements into new material. With themes of technology, memory, landscapes and people, Love Forgotten is a film about love, loss and hope to coincide with the release of the Love Forgotten albums (Parts 1&2). ‘
