A COMPLETE HISTORY OF SPACE MUSIC

We have invited various artists to address the music of the space pioneers.

May Ming reinterpret Les Baxter’s Music Out of the Moon (chosen as Neil Armstrong’s personal cassette on the Apollo 11 mission)

Paddy Steer recalibrates music from Joe Meek’s “I Hear a New World”

LA77 rewires Dick Hyman s “Moon gas”

Matt Halsall plugs in his trumpet for some Classic Space Jazz

Ken Hollings connects suburbia to outer space in his lecture “Welcome to Mars”

Massonix will perform “Pulsars”, a suite for radio waves from the Jodrell Bank Radio Telescope

.. ..

LUNAR MODULE CEREMONY

We have invited various model makers to reconstruct “The Eagle”. But will she fly? “You ve got a bunch of guys about to turn blue!”

The Mercury Seven a DJ team brought together from a rigorous selection process of clinical, endurance and psychological testing. Who will be first in orbit: Kelvin Brown, Graham Massey, John Mc Cready, LA77? Only four survived.

RECLAIM THE MOON

Aware of the fact that NASA’s free footage has been used to death in trippy visuals from the 1960s through to the present day, we will celebrate its overuse by using it to death. It’s all we’ve got left!

Lonely Creatures - Green Room, Manchester

Lonely Creatures: Six Short Films by Howard Walmsley and Ken Hollings.
Green Room, 54-56 Whitworth St west, Manchester

Featuring live deconstructed soundtrack by Howard Walmsley Graham Massey and Ken Hollings with intense interventions by Hot Bone.

Lonely Creatures: Six Short Films by Howard Walmsley and Ken Hollings. A Spanish tale of romance that drifts alarmingly away from its starting point; a Japanese scientist obsessed with notions of unrequited love; an announcer struggling to recap the increasingly complicated plot of an old television serial – welcome to the world of the Lonely Creatures.

Only ever heard and never seen: these are the voices of individuals who can no longer connect with the people around them. Inhabiting a universe where nothing seems to fit, least of all the Lonely Creatures themselves, they dream of aliens and monsters, world domination and sordid sexual intrigues.

Eternally doomed to disappointment, these are voices we only ever get to overhear. Caught up in telephone conversations, muttering to themselves or simply repeating the words written by others, the Lonely Creatures remain exposed and vulnerable even when no one is listening to them – and yet somehow they keep on going.

Presented as a series of six short films made up of conflicting images, words and soundtracks, Lonely Creatures is a fragmented study of isolation and obsession, fantasy and collapse: each one a fragmented portrait that is at once haunting and funny, disturbing yet oddly familiar.
