IFI & Fractal present Synthesis, a cinema screening of audiovisual works by Irish composers and artists. Curated by Fractal directors Anna Murray and Philip Lawson, Synthesis explores the ways in which music and video come together to explore ideas.
With shorter works from emerging artists interspersed with longer collaborative works, the first Synthesis programme explores darkness and texture in theme, sound and imagery. Alongside the premiere screening of Trish McAdam’s Rough Time, a work juxtaposing the downfall of one man and the rise of civilisation is Mark Linnane/Aki Aro/Colm Tobin and Donnacha Dennehy’s The Weathering, about ‘the inexorable processes of nature, sleep, death and our entanglement in these constraints’ and Marc and Luke Balbirnie’s painful Trigeminal Neuralgia.
Contrasting these is Linda Buckley and Maura McDonnell’s explorations in ambience and colour, Silk Chroma, David Collier’s study in rhythm, Shift, and Sebastian Adams and Mary Leonard’s Lightbulb. And ahead of the premiere of Gorging Limpet in Cork during the summer, Karen Power and Max le Cain’s first collaboration Involuntary Participation.
