Wed, 25/05/2016 - 8:00pm

A selection of the best avant garde and underground films from the hypnotically beautiful to the comedic films of Brakhage, Maya Deren and Oskar Fischinger counterpointed with live performances of Cage’s music by Holmfirth and internationally known composer Barry Russell with his hugely talented friends. Central to Cage’s philosophy, chance will play a large part in the evening in deciding the choice of films and the musical outcomes. The event celebrates the launch of Barry Russell’s new book ‘Everything we do is music.’: Cross-curricular experiments in sound based on the music of John Cage.
