Sound Cuts

Variable length performance for 3-6x16mm projectors, film loops, optical sound.

Black film is repeatedly cut and re-joined. The cuts are made with the angled blade of a splicer normally used for joining sound film.

At each cut we see an angled flash of light followed by a thud of sound.

The film combines rhythmic intervals from one cut per second increasing to twenty-four cuts per second, spread across several projectors.

3 projector version first performed at Site Gallery, Sheffield July 2007, 6 projector loop version first performed at KYTN Dundee 2008
