Masonik live cinema Vj & Music Score - This Saturday 30th Nov 6.30pm Luna Leederville - a Re-production of HAXAN.
Hosted by RTRfm - http://rtrfm.com.au/masonik-presents-haxan-live-score/
"Perth-based experimental outfit Masonik present a live score for infamous 1922 Danish occult classic Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages. Benjamin Christensen’s legendary film uses a series of dramatic vignettes to conflate the persecution suffered by witches of the Middle Ages with the hysteria of turn-of-the-century psychiatric patients. Masonik will present an edited version of this darkly humourous film, pairing Christensen’s visually majestic production with their own witches cauldron of sonic armoury.
Fusing ambient soundscapes with global beatsmithery and dubbed-out audio excursions, Masonik utilise disparate instrumentation to meld a soundworld that is truly immersive and exploratory, and will provide a gripping alternate score for this beautiful and infamous classic of early cinema."
