Stories from the Half Light – The films of Peter Hutton

Boston guitarist/composer (Chris Brokaw) and Dublin guitarist/composer (Matthew Nolan) present a selection of work by the experimental filmmaker Peter Hutton (1944-2016). Over a period of 50 years Hutton made a series of short silent films, often in black and white, and primarily of landscapes and cities. He likened the films to paintings, and described watching them as ‘a little like daydreaming’. His concerns about information overload even in the 1970’s were uniquely prescient. Brokaw and Nolan seek to explore the questions raised by these films about how we take in information. The presentation will alternate movies in their original/silent state with ones featuring new live scores for electric guitar and electronics.
