Finders Keepers man to play his Kleksploitation piece alongside screening of classic video nasty flick Possession

On Friday 18 October, excellent independent label Finders Keepers will be presenting Hocus Focus, a night of Polish Film at Manchester's The Dancehouse cinema.

Hooked around the release of Andrzej Żuławski's 1981 horror film Possession on Blu-Ray DVD by Second Sight Films, there'll be a screening of the film. This will be billed alongside the label's head Andy Votel performing his audio/visual homage to the Pan Kleks trilogy of Polish children's films released in the 80s and their soundtrack by forward-thinking composer Andrzej Korzynski. Kleksploitation is an ongoing project by Votel, which sees him collaborating with the film editor Andy Rushton to present "an entirely re-contextualised version of Korzynski’s psychedelic proto-electro scores" for the trilogy, three of the 120+ film soundtracks the composer produced.

Tickets are £8 and available here; in the meantime, watch a preview of Kleksploitation below, with the trailer for Possession following:
