AN EVENING WITH THE PARASITIC FANTASY BAND

We are excited to host The Parasitic Fantasy Band from New Zealand. Much of The Parasitic Fantasy Band's synergistic delvings into the realm of live cinema are about experimenting and engaging at an almost ecstatic level with the ethereal and experiential possibilities so finely balanced in the relationship between the actuality of an event and the almost mystical transformation it evokes in those experiencing it. Their means by which such results are attempted wander the gamut from: Modified Multi-projector 16mm works and structuralist light refractions … Synchronistic synaesthesia and interactive paper ream screens… Mutable mystic mumblings over hypnotic landscapism… Intensively reactive direct 35mm photochemical/biological film experiments... Trapeze interventions and narratives blueprinted from the life cycles of migrating sea birds… Phasing optical illusions and ecstatic colour tapestries… Pseudo-anthropologic mystic fictional direct film story telling... Kinetic painted bleach rhythms and hypnotic flicker dreams... Gongs, projectors resonating strings, live electronics, interview material and forest field recordings hand collected over months spent recording in the Amazon jungle… Oh, and one very heavy but luscious malfunctioning digital intellectual-properly-boundary-blurring video piece. http://www.parasiticfantasyband.org.nz/
