Encounters Festival marks two decades of technological change with the UK premiere of the film version of Philip Jeck’s powerful work, Vinyl Requiem.
Vinyl Requiem is an evocative celebration of the end of an era which was originally a performance in 1993 at the Union Chapel in London and featured 180 Dansette record players. Created by sound artist Philip Jeck in collaboration with visual artist Lol Sargent, this reinvention of a one-off audio-visual performance of remarkable force and scale sees Jeck perform live with his on screen digitised self. Followed by an after show discussion with the artists.
