Between Landing

Now available:

Collaborative electronics recordings from Phil Julian and Ben Owen which began after the pair met in London in 2009 while performing as part of Mark Wastell’s improvising group THE SEEN.

The recordings began as a series of improvised pieces which then underwent considerable restructuring, layering and additional instrumentation resulting in three long-form, slowly evolving electronic compositions.

The Strange Colour of Your Bodys Tears

Showing postponed until Autumn 2014, details as and when…

24th June 2014

Red Gallery, London @ 7:30pm

The 2014 East End Film Festival presents “The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears” with a brand new pre-recorded soundtrack, curated by Benjamin John Power, featuring work from Blanck Mass, Helm, Konx-Om-Pax, Roll The Dice, MoonGangs, C Spencer Yeh and Phil Julian.

“A dazzling tribute to the great Italian horror films of the 1970s gets a retrofit all of its own in this very special screening. Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani’s film sees a man search for his missing wife in the labyrinthine halls of his apartment building, only to become submerged in the strange fantasies of sensuality and bloodshed emanating from the psyches of the building’s other inhabitants.”
