RE:VIVE: Suzanne Kraft, Parrish Smith, Jordan GCZ, and upsammy by Dekmantel
Dekmantel is hosting several free talks at Eye Filmmuseum during Dekmantel Festival 2018, in happy cooperation with Resident Advisor. They've invited many beloved artists from the festival to dig deeper within the music culture Dekmantel is so fond of. Furthermore, they've once again teamed up with RE:VIVE for a special collaboration with upsammy, Parrish Smith, Jordan GCZ and Suzanne Kraft, and will screen two films by Tangerine Dream and Phantom Kino Ballett.
19.30-20.30 - Cinema 1 - Conference - RE:VIVE w/ Suzanne Kraft, Parrish Smith, Jordan GCZ, and upsammy
Following the nostalgia-drenched debut of Jonny Nash's new score for the seminal Dutch film Sky Over Holland at last year's edition, the Dutch Institute for Sound and Vision's RE:VIVE initiative and Dekmantel team up again for a new slew of re-imagined film scores from some of the Netherlands' foremost musicians. Pulled from the vaults of EYE Film Museum and Sound and Vision, Parrish Smith, upsammy, Jordan GCZ (Jordash) and Suzanne Kraft will compose brand new works for 3 Dutch and 1 German experimental animation films.
All films, visually mesmerising, vibe with each producers' characteristics. The rigid yet flowing instrumentation of Jordan GCZ, upsammy's pastoral rhythmic house, Suzanne Kraft's sombre lushness and Parrish Smith's destructed opus all offer modern yet appropriate accompaniment for the films. Making its debut at Eye Filmmuseum, each producer will try their hand at composing for moving image to craft a new sonic narrative for an oft-ignored film finally brought back to life.
