Haiku Salut are performing live on the Brewery Arts Theatre stage, followed by a Q&A!
Instrumental artists Haiku Salut are famed for performances where their music casts its magical spell. Here they present two live scores, accompanying a pair of silent shorts from the BFI Archive.
Join the “dream-pop-post-folk-neo-everything” trio for two original live scores to Nude Woman by Waterfall (1920) and 4 and 20 Fit Girls (1940). Funded by Film Hub North and commissioned and produced by Live Cinema UK.
Haiku Salut released both songs in their entirety in October 2020. The first song, “Pattern Thinker” (11 mins 24 seconds), provided the soundtrack for the 1940 black and white short, “4 And 20 Fit Girls”. Haiku Salut’s new score marries intricate electronica with emotive post-rock to create a joyous, expansive and hopeful soundtrack. Since its release, it has received a lot of coverage and airplay on BBC 6 Music.
The second song, “Portrait In Dust” (10 minutes 50 seconds), provided the soundtrack for the 1920 short film, “Nude Woman By Waterfall”, shot by pioneering British filmographer Claude Friese-Greene. In contrast to the graceful choreography of “4 And 20 Fit Girls”, this is a dreamlike, impressionistic piece, an experiment in mood, style and atmosphere – and Haiku Salut’s music matches this tone perfectly with a haunted ambient score.
The performance is 25 min, followed by a 30 min Q&A.
