Nick Coleman: The Train in the Night
Music had been an integral part of Nick Coleman’s life for as long as he could remember. But Sudden Neurosensory Hearing Loss changed that irrevocably. The Train in the Night is Coleman’s account of his struggle to restore his ability not only to hear but to think about and feel music again. Train in the Night is published by Jonathan Cape.

Neil Rose & Shaun Lewin: Inventory of Witch (2013) premiere
Many Worlds is a short live-action film about a physics experiment that should never have been performed, directed by
Alexis Kirke, whose soundtrack and story arc are generated subconsciously by the cinema audience. Selected audience members have biological signals monitored by a computer that digitally splices together a coherent movie in real-time based on detected emotions and pre-filmed segments.
transmission+interference is a collaborative investigation of D.I.Y / D.I.T methods for creating artworks utilising hacked and appropriated materials. The focus is to use laser light and controlled movements of the various parts involved to generate visualisations as outcome source for sound / noise. Most of the used materials and musical instruments originate in group workshops and discussions where shared skills and knowledge influence the potential outcome of the project greatly.
Email David Strang to participate. Limited places.
6.45pm Jill Craigie Cinema
