The London Perambulator
Nick Papadimitriou walks rich pickings for the deep topographer
Terrorists plan to blow up the country with suitcase A-bombs. Plot is foiled but the end scene is "The Rapture". Give me a break! Apparently God doesn't care abount anybody left behind so those fortunate souls who get plucked from the driver's seat in various machines just let them crash & burn.

Shamans Of The Amazon
by Martina Kudlacek.
documentary on the exceptional experimental film maker, choreographer, writer, photographer and more besides.
great little documentary about the band Earth.
slow motion minimalism drawing on folk textures, monolithic blues unfolding around the listener in waves of amplified guitar.
thought provoking documentary on the mighty Cecil Taylor.
a true pioneer. percussive tone clusters, polyrhythmic intricacy and improvisational physicality. you FEEL Cecil Taylor.
his work with the classic Unit (saxophonist Jimmy Lyons and master drummer Sunny Murray, and later with the equally influential Andrew Cyrille) is a MUST for any fan of music's ability to transcend and inspire.
a pronouncement on life, art and music.
"The cuckoo calls from the well of my mind,
more echo than thought, as it fades through the wind
and flickers away to the silence beyond
like the voice, in myself, of another."
‘Insomnia in Southern Illinois’, by John Burnside
Eoghan is a sound recordist who is returning to Ireland for the first time in 15 years. The reason for his return is a job offer: to record landscapes free from man-made sound. His quest takes him to remote terrain, away from towns and villages.
Throughout his journey, he is drawn into a series of encounters and conversations which gradually divert his attention towards a more intangible silence, one that is bound up with the sounds of the life he had left behind.
Influenced by elements of folklore and archive, Silence unfolds with a quiet intensity, where poetic images reveal an absorbing meditation on themes relating to sound and silence, history, memory and exile.
