So we’re finally getting on the online event train.

A year on from our last physical event at The Rossi Bar our inaugural online event has a mix of approaches, Dan Powell’s film based on an installation for Fort Process – video & audio based on sounds made by objects in the Newhaven fort archive, Noteherder & McCloud reconstructing a musical zoom meeting, and finally midi_error’s new foray into AV improvisation.

We’re keeping it focused and brief, there’ll be no invitations to partake of the electrocreche – although I have an idea for that for next time, so keep ’em peeled.

Shot top-down so you can see the action clearly, strap yourselves in for a high octane experiment!
