Simon McBurney: Complicite’s The Encounter

"Simon McBurney transports us into the humid depths of the Amazon, his storytelling served by the enveloping presence of binaural technology.

After premiering at Edinburgh International Festival this August, Complicite's The Encounter is currently play a sold-out run on our stage. We're delighted to support Complicite in their first live-stream as they broadcast The Encounter live online from our theatre to your home by watching through our website on Tuesday 1 March, 7.30pm GMT.

Audiences must wear headphones to watch the live stream, or the effect of the binaural recording will be lost. Any headphones will work, but playing the film out of speakers will not give the same effect. The live stream is free to watch, and will also be available to watch on demand for a week after the live broadcast, until Tuesday 8 March."

Streamed live on 1 Mar 2016

Watch The Encounter (sold out) live from the Barbican, London until 8 March. Headphones MUST be worn to experience the show's binaural sound design (3D audio). Directed and performed by Simon McBurney.

Thelonious Monk: Straight, No Chaser (1988)

"Expanding on footage of Monk's 1967 tour shot by Christian Blackwood, Charlotte Zwering (Gimme Shelter) has created the definitive filmic portrait of the master bop pianist–composer. This captivating DVD digs deeper into the life of the famously eccentric pianist–composer ...

Straight, No Chaser fleshes out Monk's character considerably – from his harmonic theories to his use of quarter – tones (produced by hitting two adjacent piano keys simultaneously and occasionally even striking the boards with his entire forearm or his foot) to his mysterious relationship with his patron, baroness Nica de Koenigswarter."

Jefferson Airplane Wakes Up New York; Jean-Luc Godard Captures It

"He took over from the specialists and operated the camera from the window of Leacock–Pennebaker's office on West Forty–fifth street, shooting the band on the roof of the Schuyler Hotel across the street. (Pennebaker recalled him to be an amateurish cameraman who could not avoid the beginner's pitfall of frequent zooming in and out.) The performance took place without a permit, at standard rock volume: as singer Grace Slick later wrote, 'We did it, deciding that the cost of getting out of jail would be less than hiring a publicist"

(via Open Culture, 24 February 2012)

Fig.1 Jean–Luc Godard filmed the band on a rooftop in Midtown Manhattan (December 7, 1968).

Resolume: VJ Software for producing realtime generated visuals

"Resolume is created by Edwin de Koning & Bart van der Ploeg together with Tim Walther, Daniel Berio, Joris de Jong, Menno Vink and a few specialized freelancers.

Resolume was born because we wanted to VJ. But we wanted to do it better. Back in 1998 VJ–ing was done with VHS tapes and an mx50 video mixer so it was hard to quickly improvise video to music because tempo could not be adjusted, or even reversed. Effects were limited to what the mx50 had to offer. We thought software would allow us to improvise more and be a better VJ.

We could not find any VJ software that did what we wanted back in 1998 so we started programming our own. We quickly realized our software was much better than our VJ–ing so we work on Resolume full–time since 2002."

(Edwin de Koning and Bart van der Ploeg)
