CineSonic participates to the third edition of the Sounds of the Underground Festival (SOTU) with a new show where classic avant-garde films will be screened with new musical interpretations.

Raphael Vanoli (electric guitar) will play solo to a selection of experimental films by Hans Richter and team up with Seamus Cater (duet concertina) for a live screening of Walter Ruttmann's Lichtspiel Opus 1.

The immaculate DJ TUNN PEPPARKAKA will be spinning some lovely tunes before and after the show.

Raphael Vanoli creates unheard textures by using blowing techniques on his electric guitar. His music takes the form of uneven telluric sound-scapes and has elements of minimalistic song. At times loud and extreme, Vanoli's music is especially meditative and body friendly. It hits the soul with waves of empathy.

Seamus Cater is an English musician / writer / performer / organiser, living and working in the Netherlands. Much of his music has a relationship to the British folk music revival of the 1950's and 60's while he does not try to recreate historical or modern folk music.

The oeuvre of Hans Richter (1888-1976) spanned nearly seven decades. Born in Berlin, he was one of the most significant champions of modernism. Berlin, Paris, Munich, Zurich, Moscow and New York were the major stations of his life. He was a painter and draughtsman, a Dadaist and a Constructivist, a film maker and a theoretician, as well as a great teacher.
We will screen a selection of Richter's films from his early shape experiments to his fascination with films 'that give memory nothing to hang on'.

Lichtspiel Opus 1, is the first of the four-part Lichtspiel: Opus by German avant-garde director Walter Ruttmann.
Throughout the four Opus films, Ruttman utilizes tinting, toning, coloring of emulsions, and contemporary Oskar Fischinger's wax-slicing methods, creating images intended to provoke the kind of emotional responses that one might experience while listening to music.

Tickets are exclusively available for SOTU festival, single day ticket or passe-partout. Friday ticket € 12,- / Passe partout € 25,-
