However much I like Cafe Oto I am quite excited to program an event in a different venue just for the ride. I'm inviting you to the charming church hall in Exmouth Market thrice blessed by the presence of David Stackenas, Frederic Blondy and Will Guthrie.

I'm double excited by the fact that the event will present music and films. Indeed Mathias Forge, french trombone player, is coming to London in the same period as Dirk De Bruyn, filmmaker from Australia.

All this is happening with fairly short notice as it's going to take place on Sunday the 2nd of November.

Short notice, visiting film and music artists and a different space, it could be a defining event of what I want to do - if ever the audience attend to it.

To revive this section I thought I could mention here other interesting events. To start off this new thread I chose -quite lazily I admit- a film event that's dear to my heart.

Peter Gidal curates a night of experimental films in the pavillion of the Serpentine Gallery, the films featured are:

Malcome Legrice: Matrix, Lecture at the Academy and Berlin Horse
Samantha Rebello: Surface of Residual Matter (collaboration with Angharad Davies) and In Suspension (steaming hot from Sam's editing machine)
Simon Payne: Colour Bars and Thirds
Jennifer Nightingale: Colour Pinhole Film (Cathedral)

All the details can be found here park_nights

And to read about the filmmakers have a look at:

Jennifer Nightingale explores the relationships between the control of the filmmaking process and the gestures of the filmmaker. She studied for her BA from KIAD in Canterbury, and graduated with an MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art. She's been awarded the FURTHER2 residency from the no.w.here lab.
