Lineup and Details for Practical Electronica: Film screening and Q&A on Wed 2nd May 2012
Exploring the innovative career of this English musician, inventor, engineer, designer and author, the focus is on his experimental sound, filling in a lost chapter in early electronic music history. With the cooperation of Freds widow, his story is told through cine film, archive footage, animation and experimental video all materials that Helliwell has a unique affinity with. The documentary has no interviewees, and is rooted in the amateur tape recording world that Fred inhabited during the 60s - narration, electronic sounds and his voice tell the story.
Ian Helliwell will be attending the screening for a Q&A after the film, as well as showing several of his other short films.
The resident Breadboard Djs will play a selection of the finest experimental electronic, radiophonic and industrial music before and after the screening.
Ian Helliwell featured in the February edition of The Wire, and you can listen to some of his tracks on their website.
