Presented as part of the Melbourne International Film Festival.
Before Nightfall is a series of musical encounters between Speak Percussion and guest artists, working intensively across one day, culminating in a live performance that night. In 2020, Before Nightfall uses the moving image as its inspiration. Before Nightfall #12 is in collaboration with Senegalese-born, Melbourne-based artist Lamine Sonko.
All music created has been inspired by an adaptation of the famous Senegalese film Hyenas, restored in 2018. This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, all artists worked across one day, in isolation. Their music was recorded and mixed and the final presentation is offered online as an audio-visual work as part of MIFF 68 1/2.
Before Nightfall #12 can be watched in conjunction with the fully restored feature film Hyenas.
MIFF Tickets for this online presentation are free but must be booked via the MIFF website.
