FRIEND OR FOE PRESENTS... LEGENDS OF FLIGHT,WILL PLOWMAN (A FUTURE WITHOUT) & IN ATOMS.
A NIGHT OF LIVE MUSIC & AV PERFORMANCES.
commissioned by LAKES ALIVE FESTIVAL 2016.
at THE UNITED REFORM CHURCH, KENDAL uk.
27th AUGUST 2016
A new collaborative music performance in three parts by In Atoms, Will Plowman and Legends Of Flight, accompanied by film and audio-reactive visual projections, inspired by themes from the 1987 film ‘Wings Of Desire’, Wim Wenders’ cinematic exploration of love, connections, place and time.
Set in the ornately carved 19th Century Gothic surroundings of the Kendal United Reform Church, we set up a multi-channel audio system configured to exploit the building’s unique acoustic properties, while a huge transparent layered screen spanned across, looming over the performers to project film and generative artwork, portraying a journey through an illusory landscape littered with the sights, sounds and thoughts of unknown lives isolated in the crowds of an unknown city; the familiar, the lost, the distorted, the hidden.
