Human Greed will perform at the Intermediale Festival, Legnica, Poland (Festiwal Form Audiowizualnych INTERMEDIALE 2010) on Friday 26th November. Fragile Pitches, the collaborative piece by Colin Potter and Michael Begg which debuted in 2009 at St Giles Cathedral Edinburgh will also be performed at the festival on the same evening, and will feature a live mixed video projection by Polish audio visual artist Krzysztof Pawlik.
The event takes place in the Teatr Modrzejewskiej, Legnica (pictured above)
Filmed by Neil McLauchlan, Human Greed are caught in the beatnik loft atmosphere of Warsaw’s Plan B – a far cry from the Krakow Killer captured on the same tour. The clip also features the wonderful Gosia – LeeDVD – who turned up to provide Polish translation and some attitude to the evening!
Herewith, a 10 minute clip capturing the Human Greed shows in Poland last month. The clip was captured and compiled by the estimable Neil McLauchlan, who, co-incidentally, also shot the footage for the screen projections that also lend themselves to the present clip.
As preparations continue apace for next week’s performances in Poland, and the first flabby reviews for Black Hill begin to trickle in with their tiresome limpid references to “ambient” and “dark” and “dread” and “chilling atmospherics” etcetera, it is gratifying to observe that the promoters of the show in Gdansk are prepared to spare a few lines to suggest what lies under the ripples of sound…
I am all warm and fuzzy in the heart, and have warm memories of the kind hearted folks in that most open hearted of cities; Krakow.
The fact that there are three mentions of “heart” in a single sentence perhaps indicate that the unique brand of camaraderie that arises out of sitting in candlelit spaces drinking together was much in evidence – but nevertheless many thanks are due to Richo, Marcin, Mark and Lucasz for making last weekend so memorably enjoyable.
