We launch the 15th Annual Southampton Film Week with this free to attend concert and digital image performance, celebrating our long-standing partnership with Turner Sims.
Exploration of the relationship between live music and moving image has been a theme of Southampton Film Week since its first edition in 2008. We are thrilled to achieve this in 2022 with this innovative performance by composer, pianist and creative coder Larkhall.
Algorithms are art. Coding is creative. Let Larkhall show you.
Mad scientist and concert pianist Larkhall has invented a computer system named Otto. Otto responds in real time to Larkhall’s performance, creating stunning live visuals.
Algorithms play a role in our daily lives. They shape everything from weather forecasts, to driving directions, to social media feeds. But can they be… art?
A composer, pianist and creative coder, Larkhall’s debut album The Sea Was Never Blue reached #2 on the iTunes Classical chart. Tonight, he performs new classical piano music as live visuals are created and projected on the big screen behind him in response. These ‘vividly beautiful’, ‘enchanting’ compositions (Chicago Sun-Times) shed new light on how science, technology, engineering and mathematics can be used creatively.
See technology, visual art and music collide in this moving, cinematic performance of the future.
Join us for the after-party! The bar will be open and the music will be playing.
