PREVIEW: Outer Church - Psychedelic Campfire Tales (Thursday, 13th January)

Thursday 13th January
£4 on the portal

The Outer Church lurches into 2011 with what promises to be a truly immersive audiovisual experience.

The OC is proud to present two films by American director Graham Reznick in association with Aphasia Films/Glass Eye Pix. I Can See You (95 minutes) is a psychedelic campfire tale acclaimed by The New York Times as an “elusive, experimental scare flick [heralding] a splendid new filmmaker with one eye on genre mechanics, one eye on avant-garde conceits and a third eye for transcendental weirdness” while futuristic 3D short The Viewer (15 minutes) is “a telepathic interrogation experienced from the perspective of a suspected murderer.” Anaglyph glasses will be provided for the latter screening.

The uncanny atmosphere will be further compounded by live sets from The Haxan Cloak and The Larsen EffectThe Haxan Cloak is multi-instrumentalist Bobby Krlic, who employs a variety of textures to erect dense scuttling fields of sonic malevolence and has released records on Aurora Borealis - a label that houses several otherworldy metal/noise/ambient crossover illuminati like Burial Hex, Zola Jesus and Wraiths. 

Here's a real short blast of a video that drops you right into the headspace, albeit in a harsh full light:

The Larsen Effect is the solo project (and first ever live outing in this incarnation) for guitarist Leee Nite, veteran of the psychick wars and such esteemed outfits as Skree, Thor’s Helmet, ManTouch and Morgen Und Nite. Visuals for The Larsen Effect will be provided by acclaimed videowitch Jade Boyd.

Here's some taught electrical storm chasing from that Larsen Effect for you:

Turn up early or you WILL miss something!
