Event Details

Dreaming, reflection, rhythm, vision, ritual and identity are all compelling themes explored by American maverick filmmaker Maya Deren. Three of her most celebrated films will be accompanied by the Eldritch Trio. The trio combine an array of acoustic instruments with electronics to create sparkling sonic landscapes and poignant juxtapositions. The film scores created by the Eldritch Trio are improvised based on what is happening in the film.

'Poetry in Motion' features three films by Maya Deren: At Land, Ritual in Transfigured Time, and Meshes of the Afternoon. An uncompromising artist, Deren’s films are haunting, lyrical and breathtaking fusions of human and cinematic movement. 'Poetry in Motion' was nominated for the Film & Multimedia Award at the 2013 Fringe World Festival.

Other accolades for the Eldritch Trio include a Helpmann Award Nomination (Best Musical Direction) for their score for the Barking Gecko Theatre Company's production of Duck, Death & The Tulip [2013].

The Eldritch Trio are: Christopher de Groot - keyboards, bass flute and electronics; Callum Moncrieff - vibraphone and percussion; Tristen Parr - electric cello and effects
