DMARC Seminar – Whats the Score – Film and Improvisational Electronics – Wends Nov 15th @ 3pm


Neil O Connor will host as part of the DMARC Seminar series entitled Whats the Score – Film and Improvisational Electronics in which he shall  discuss his musical work for the visual medium. I will also be performing a live score to Chris Markers seminal 1962 Sci-Fi short film La Jetee. Constructed almost entirely from still photos, La Jetee tells the story of a post nuclear war  experiment in time travel. It is 28 minutes long and shot in black and white. The 1995 science-fiction film 12 Monkeys was inspired by and borrows several concepts directly from the film.
