Live score for new edit of In The Robot Skies
Forest Swords is the musical project of Matthew Barnes, who combines hip-hop-inspired beats with a great variety of samples and evocative guitar work to create dreamlike electronical tracks. He probes the idea of wordless, ambiguous vocals as means of expression, with melodies and chants unravelling across tracks, cut and bent out of context, age and gender in beautiful new ways.
In 2016 Barnes scored the drone movie 'In The Robot Skies’. For Future Soundscapes he will do a live version of the score for a brand new edit of the movie.
Directed by speculative architect Liam Young and written by fiction author Tim Maughan, In the Robot Skies is the world’s first narrative shot entirely through autonomous pre programmed drones. The film explores the drone as a cultural object, not just as a new instrument of visual story telling but also as the catalyst for a new collection of urban sub cultures. In this near future city drones form both agents of state surveillance but also become co-opted as the aerial vehicles through which two teens fall in love.
Perera Elsewhere is Berlin based, UK born experimental electronic music producer Sasha Perera. Coined by some as ‘Doom-Folk’, her one-of-a-kind music has been used in Paolo Sorrentino’s feature film Loro, Ava Du Vernay’s Queen Sugar show and HBO’s Looking.
Expanded Cinema performance Space Noise 3
Takashi Makino started its project Space Noise in 2012 as a combination of a 16mm film projection with HD video and sound. Since then it had been shown in over 20 countries, with Makino constantly developing and working on the images and sound.
Space Noise 3 is the third incarnation of the project and will celebrate its world premiere in the course of Future Soundscapes Festival 2019 at silent green.
