Film concert: Aelita and Garland

Film concert in which the film Aelita is shown while the German-Scottish electro-acoustic duo Garland performs live.

In this Soviet science fiction film from 1924, Los is an engineer living in Moscow who dreams of Aelita, who runs a totalitarian state on Mars. He builds a spaceship to meet her and they fall in love. But the couple faces a proletarian uprising to establish a Martian USSR. Director Jakov Protazanov used a radical constructivist production design, with disorienting geometrical shapes.

This modernist approach demands a like-minded score and German-Scottish electro-acoustic duo Garland certainly fits the bill. Freely combining analogue and digital technologies with field recordings and acoustic instrumentation, Garland finds its roots in the duos shared interest in sample-based music and the open-ended possibilities of making multiple versions of tracks found in the dub tradition.

This spring, their second album will be released and this is their first film collaboration.

Aelita & Garland: in collaboration with Cinesonic.
