Ritual Flux 51 2009

Fluxus (Moon) ………………… 49.12 minutes (Live)

Using Alex North and Jerry Goldsmith’s 1966 composition “Moon” as a starting point ETP and Sven Anderson present a soundtrack to the “Ritual Flux 51 Fluxus Screenings”

These films (18 in total) were screened during the Birr Arts Festival 2009. ETP and Anderson used a combination of custom built laptop software and loop samplers to process and stretch North and Goldsmith’s 40 second long intro from their BAFTA winning score to the 1966 film “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” to fill the full running time of the “Fluxus Screenings”.
