VIDEO SCREENINGS

Damian Lintell-Smith – angelswORD
Music recorded in 2004 using pitched bass, surmandal, violin & mather drum. Recorded after extensive travels of south-east Asia.
Video recorded 1/5/18 using hacked video titler/processor.
I began creating as Psychiceyeclix in 2001, based in London.
In the beginning, I made drum & bass/electronic music, then began hacking toys/keyboards/drum machines/video effects…& anything that could make sound or video. I use hacked toys/video processors/games consoles/diy electronics to create music, video art & perform. I try to use a symbiosis of light & sound as much as possible, either light to influence sound or vice versa, some of my devices create visuals & audio simultaneously.

Jules Bryant – Don’t Cross the Line
This is Sound Art for the promotion of knowledge and understanding of male suicidal ideation amongst the UK populace. Stigma is characterised by ignorance and fear. For far too long, male suicide, the suicidal thoughts of men, and the reasons why men may feel suicidal have been hidden from view. By sharing their experiences, men who have/ had suicidal thoughts, can improve the public’s knowledge and understanding, reduce the stigma and isolation, and work towards increasing the levels and types of support. This piece uses the experiences of those men to influence the sounds and creation of the sound art.
As a sound artist, I work with both audio and visual media to create combinations that call for deep listening and engagement. My work often uses video or photography as the visual element, occasionally the work is created as a live location piece utilising the sounds naturally generated on-site. Most of the pieces I create could be described as minimalist and experimental; consisting of a variety of instruments and recording processes to manipulate the sound. I am greatly influenced by extra-musical sources, often finding inspiration from world events or personal circumstances. I create artwork that explores challenging subjects, calling for engagement and deep listening from the observer. I don’t impose a personal position or view but rather seek to cause an emotional response through the artwork.

Charles Vaughan – Missing
Missing is an art film based around the feelings of absence. It features a long dark motorway drive with various video effects along with an ambient electronic soundscape. The film draws from the soundscape draws from the absence and loneliness experienced in the city, whilst contrasted with the solitude of a long night drive. Charles Vaughan is a musician, promoter, artist and DJ based in SE London. I have specialized in a variety of contexts, from my work with On the Corner Records, to my surround sound night Resolution at Goldsmiths University. I am primarily a musician and sound artist, focused on ambient and electronic textures, both in stereo and surround sound.

Josh Grey-Jung
Josh Grey-Jung is a sound artist based in London. His practice incorporates field recording, moving image and immersive environments. His previous works have tackled themes of masculinity, the unconscious, and pollution; and have been exhibited and performed at venues including the Barbican, the Zabludowicz Collection, and Kings Place. In November 2017, Working along-side poet, Jack Miguel, and director, Taz Tron Delix, Josh co-created an immersive multi-screen, multi-channel audio-visual installation. ‘The Turning Of The Leaves’ (commissioned by The Union Chapel) was a response to the First World War and its enduring effect on contemporary masculinity. In January 2018, Josh took part in a two-week artist residency in West Bengal, creating a stereo-acousmatic composition (‘Holy River of Plastic’) exploring the impacts of globalisation on the rapidly developing city of Kolkata.

LOU BARNELL
Brutal dream time Dubspraxia, raw physical performance, vocal power and corporeal sonics.
Lou is inspired by the disorientating dissonant juncture of dreams, surveillance and reality. Lou explodes and post mortems the suffocating shit, cheap packaging of femininity in art and life, using a hypnotic combination of biorthymic monitors, metronomic devices, elemental instruments, and visceral physical performance.
