GHOST WORLDS (ANIMAL RITES)
by Avant Kinema / Undertoad
soundtrack album for Avant Kinema's
Expanded Cinema Performance of the
same name (Alchemy Film and Moving
Image Festival, Hawick, 2018)
The soundtrack to Avant Kinema's Expanded Cinema Performance, Ghost Worlds (Animal Rites), is a collaboration between Newcastle-born Handpan player, Undertoad (aka Neil Coles) and Scottish Borders based artist-filmmakers & indie/alternative musicians, Avant Kinema (Sarahjane Swan & Roger Simian, who also create music as The Bird And The Monkey).
The track's evolution began with Undertoad creating an improvised Handpan jam. To this recording, Avant Kinema then added their own musical elements: Sarahjane Swan's voice and Roger Simian's instrumentation.
The album is available to download from The Bird And The Monkey's Bandcamp page.
Here's Avant Kinema's 10 minute long trailer for the full length Ghost Worlds (Animal Rites) experimental film document of their 25 minute long Expanded Cinema Performance (part of Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival's Celebrate Super 8 event at the Auld Baths, Hawick, Friday 4th May 2018).
The duo describe the film as their "Vegan Art-Film" and advise viewer discretion.
