Summer Looking and Listening?


Normally at this time of year people produce summer reading lists - so as a moving image alternative here is a vintage piece of 'research', a short film from the late 1980s called Green on the Horizon made by Philip Sanderson (LSBU) and Steven Ball (CSM). Described as "part fake public information film, part occult jaunt" Green on the Horizon has just been re-issued by way of the new BFI player and is available to view for the princely sum of £1. Inclusion on a BFI DVD is promised for later in the year by which time, Film of The Same Name, a self-reflexive remake we are currently editing should also be completed.  

If looking wasn't enough then you can also visit the new Sanderson Bandcamp page where various electronic/music works from the early 1980s to the present day can be found including the latest release - Back Projection (warning may contain songs). That's probably enough promotion for now.
