RadioMentale : A Cine-Concert Rework of “The General”

India – 

Alliance Française de Delhi, with the support of Institut Français en Inde, in collaboration with Warehouse Café presents Radiomentale a Cine-Concert Rework of “The General”, directed by Clyde Bruckman and Buster Keaton

RadioMentale is an electronic music, sound artists & DJ duo founded by Jean-Yves Leloup & Eric Pajot. They started their career in 1992, with their own radio show, playing experimental music, concrete music, ambient & electronic.

Since 2000, they are known as the pioneers of « cinemix », an audiovisual performing practice which is quite popular in France. As Djs and sound artists, they create new soundtracks for silent and classic experimental films (by Griffith, Murnau, Keaton, Vertov, and dada/surrealist artists), but also for modern talking movies, such Antonioni’s Blow Up, Gus Van Sant’s Gerry, Brian De Palma’s Dressed To Kill or David Cronenberg’s Videodrome.

 

 

A RadioMentale performance or sound piece is usually a collage drawing on an eclectic range of audio sources, including sound experiments, movie soundtracks, ambient music, experimental & electronic music, natural sounds, fragment of interviews and human voice.The film to be screened on the 26th June for this cine-concert is “The General” (USA, 1927, 76′) film by Buster Keaton.

This film is an imaginative masterpiece of dead-pan “Stone-Face” Buster Keaton comedy, generally regarded as one of the greatest of all silent comedies (and Keaton’s own favorite) – and undoubtedly the best train film ever made.

Venue :  Warehouse Café, 1st Floor, Inner Circle, D Block, Connaught Place, New Delhi

Date :  Wednesday, 26 June 2013
