The Outer Church Dublin: Pye Corner Audio, Black Mountain Transmitter & More
So happy to be able to announce this after weeks and months of planning and preparation. So excited about seeing three of the finest electronic artists in Britain all in Dublin for one night only, as part of the Darklight film festival. Joseph Stannard, creator, instigator and manager of the Outer Church has put together a really incredible line-up and the screening of Graham Geznick’s ‘I Can See You’ is a really great addition to the night’s events. As the poster above says, it’s on August 25th in Subground 43 (a warehouse style venue off Gardiner Lane, near Mountjoy Square), doors will be at 8pm and admission will set you back ten euros. You can bring your own tipple. Tickets can be bought from Tickets.ie.
As ever, Mr. Stannard explains it better than I can so here’s the skinny:
In association with Dublin’s Darklight Festival, Brighton-based audiovisual event The Outer Church presents a night of uncanny sound and vision taking place on Saturday August 25 at Subground 43.
Recent Ghost Box signing Pye Corner Audio (creator of the acclaimed Black Mill Tapes series) will be joined by Belfast’s finest purveyor of bleak arboreal drone and imaginary soundtracks Black Mountain Transmitter (whose new album Playing With Dead Things will be released this Halloween by Auris Apothecary) and Brighton’s ‘slurtronic’ specialist Kemper Norton (whose new EP for the Front & Follow label is set for release later this year). All three artists draw on elements of folklore, Weird Fiction, TV and cinema in their own distinctive yet complementary ways.
In addition, there will be a special screening of US filmmaker Graham Reznick’s psychedelic campfire tale I Can See You which, according to The New York Times, “heralds a splendid new filmmaker with one eye on genre mechanics, one eye on avant-garde conceits and a third eye for transcendental weirdness.” Reznick is the sound designer of choice for director Ti West (The House Of The Devil, The Innkeepers) and he brings a uniquely dreamlike, surreal sensibility to the backwoods horror subgenre.
The audio and visual components of this programme have been carefully assembled with the intention of creating an immersive and atmospheric experience.
