retrospective catch up post!

Live Cinema Performance Image

Modulate gave a live Cinema performance  at the Midland Arts Centre Haxagon Theatre as part of ‘Freecode Hexagon‘, performing as a three piece , Bobby Bird /Mark Harris audio,  Scylla Magda visuals.

We were surprised on arrival to find that the new speakers in the other wise rather nice little venue, had been installed behind the large drop down, permanent video screen –  making the sound  somewhat muffled . We therefore opted to have the screen rolled up out of the way and to project the visuals straight onto the dark wooden walls behind, in order to retain decent sound quality. This made for some interesting additional texture  & with some adaptations to colours / saturation etc, the visuals worked out surprisingly well.

Pete Ashton gave a nice review afterwards :

“Modulate did a gig at the MAC the other month which took my understanding of audio-visual art-music to another place. Theres a maturity and subtlety to their work which most VJ’s can’t hope to achieve, yet they still have the power to shock”
