With All Hallows Eve fast approaching we cast our eye over Liverpool’s plethora of events and came across (Oc)cult @FACT.
Now, you can always rely on FACT to break the mould and this event certainly promises to do just that. Forget scary costumes and fake blood Ryan Jordan’s Possession Trance will immerse you in a live performance project exploring the crossover between cybernetics, underground rave music and (oc)cult rituals.
‘High-powered stroboscopic light is used to control home built light-sensitive hardware leading to powerful and synchronised audiovisual output signals. These signals become directly perceptible in the brain and mechanical functioning of the human body leading potentially to audiovisual hallucinations or “mystical” experience. Think Kurt Hentschlager’s Zee meets underground noise rave.’
Not for the faint hearted some might say but when its Halloween who wants wigs and pointy hats?
‘This disembodying performance will then be followed by a special screening of the 1920’s Swedish/Danish gothic horror, Haxan. Grave robbing, torture, possessed nuns, and a satanic Sabbath! Benjamin Christensen’s legendary film uses a series of dramatic vignettes to explore the scientific hypothesis that the witches of the Middle Ages suffered from the same hysteria as turn-of-the-century psychiatric patients. But the film itself is far from serious—instead it’s a witches’ brew of the scary, gross, and darkly humorous. We are proud to present this genre-defying “documentary,” with a chilling live soundtrack provided by Bronnt Industries Kapital, the moniker of UK-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Guy Bartell.’
This event will feature strobe lighting and will not be suitable for sufferers of epilepsy.
