London Screening Tuesday March 12th!

8 03 2013

Random header image at NonclassicalIt’s been awhile since there has been a UK event, but that changes next Tuesday March 12th when the cutting edge London based Nonclassical, a musical artists collective composed of “the next generation of classical performers, composers and promoters who are redefining the rules, and breaking out of the constraints of the traditional classical concert hall.”

Sounds good to me, and I’m so happy that as part of their Pioneers of Electronic Music event they are devoting a night to Raymond Scott, and the film is part of that.  Here’s a link to their listing for the event, it starts at 7:30 pm and the address is Hackney Picturehouse, 270 Mare Street London E8 1HE.

Though the film has been shown elsewhere in the UK this is in fact the London premiere!  Unfortunately I can’t make the trip to England at this time, but hope those of you who live anywhere in the greater London area can attend…

Attn Brits: Two UK Festivals!

16 02 2010

The film is now scheduled for two exciting UK events over the next few months! Event one takes place March 28 at the Sage Gateshead Jazz Festival in Newcastle Upon Tyne, and is presented in co-operation with the Northern Lights Film Festival which occurs at the same time. It includes excerpts from the film, a performance by Stu Brown’s Raymond Scott Project, based in Glasgow, and a panel discussion with Stu and me that will be chaired by Alyn Shipton,  author and Times jazz critic.  For more details about the Sage Gateshead dates click on this link

The second event is at the cutting edge Sensoria Festival of Music and Film in Sheffield. This is the official UK premiere of the film–the festival runs from April 23-29, and the film is now definitely  scheduled for showing on April 27,  though the specific listing is not yet up on their website.   I’ll be posting again when more details but here’s a link to the overall Sensoria Festival website–the schedule is not yet up on their site.  I’ll be attending this event as well….

I’ll be posting with more info as it becomes available…
