NOTATIONS: A FILM BY VICKI BENNETT WITH A LIVE SCORE BY PHILIP JECK, JAAP BLONK AND STEVE NOBLE


Thursday 14 November 2013
7pm Kraak, Manchester M1 1BE

SAM Series presents a unique performance of Vicki Bennett (People Like Us)’s Notations, a film created for live performance by improvising artists and musicians.

As well as Vicki herself, this evening’s prestigious line-up consists of legendary composer and turntablist Philip Jeck, sound poet and performance artist Jaap Blonk, and Steve Noble, rhythmic powerhouse and collaborator with everyone from Derek Bailey to Stephen O’Malley.

Notations has been created by Vicki from hundreds of different film clips, where the content conceptually or literally portrays different kinds of ‘gestures’ or ‘instructions’ to be read by the improvising artists on stage as a visual score.

The evening will also begin with an audiovisual performance by People Like Us of Consequences (One Thing Leads To Another), which places similar but emerging subject matter side by side to construct the narrative, a story emerging as a sum of the preceding parts yet digressing on a tangent. All actions have consequences, and here we see them played out, to wondrous and catastrophic effect!
