Supersonic In Review: Podcast And Photo Gallery
The Quietus , August 6th, 2009 10:15

Our favourite extreme/alt festival, Supersonic, was a corker this year. Here's our podcast and gallery of highlights


Phlegmatic post-electronicans Pram show off their mad hauntological skills with this multimedia premiere, a collaboration with Filmficciones - a live soundtrack performed behind a triptych of screens. Occasionally picked out by backlight, their instruments become part of the silhouetted landscapes; a trumpet apes the fox, a keyboard becomes a toothsome picket-fence. The arrangements insinuate themselves into the film's increasingly dizzying imagery until they seem intrinsic. As obvious as this sounds, to watch it happen live is unexpectedly moving. PD
