AN audiovisual event at Salisbury Arts Centre tomorrow night could be the first of a series organised by Salisbury man Adam Varney.
Varney, who has been in bands for 15 years, has funded the evening and it will feature performances by himself as Finglebone and Bristol artists Microdeform and TWIN.
Varney, 34, hopes it may be the first in a new style of music event for Salisbury.
He said: “We will be doing the visuals and the music, but I want to find local filmmakers who can work in collaboration with musicians. I’m performing this time to get things moving.”
Varney has sequenced found-sounds and will play some guitar as accompaniment to his black and white visuals, which focus on the connection between his work and nature. “This is a different kind of event in which the atmosphere is relaxed and people can concentrate on the music and the images, rather than have music as the background as in a pub,” he said. “I’m hoping to get something going on a bi-monthly basis. I would also like an event with a live score where the musicians could play live to a film with a conventional narrative, perhaps with dialogue.”
Tickets for tomorrow’s event, which is entitled Eyes and Ears cost £5 and will be available from the arts centre box office. Performances start at 8pm.
