At Land / Meshes of the Afternoon audio documentation


This year I had the opportunity to perform live soundtracks for Maya Deren’s silent films At Land (1944) and Meshes of the Afternoon (1943) on three seperate occasions.

For At Land a score was developed while Meshes of the Afternoon was more improvised. For both films the instrumentation was modular synthesizer, loop player and modified zither.

On June 1st I played at Kino 46 cinema in Bremen as part of the Flickertunes series.

On August 29th the films were screened at Museum für Hamburgische Geschichte as part of the Sommernachtskino event. Also playing that night was Ansgar Wilken who accompanied the Maya Deren films A Study in Choreography for Camera and Ritual in Transfigured Time. Due to technical difficulties the recording of Meshes of the Afternoon contains some unintended distortions.

The final screening took place at Kunstverein Flensburg on October 26th.
