LYCRA DAD

LYCRA DAD is a film about middle age, competition and status. Director Gray Hughes’ wry, observational short is adapted from a poem by renowned poet Murray Lachlan Young. An innocent school sports day turns into an epic masculine showdown, as a motley bunch of Dads face off at the annual race. The win-at-any-cost mentality has infected one Dad in a bad way. He’s trained for months. Dressed head-to-toe in professional running gear. He needs this win – badly. In his mind, it’s his for the taking. The poem was inspired by Murray’s frequent cycle trips around Dalston in North London, as he noticed himself flanked by more and more regular middle-aged men taking to the streets as if they were racing the Tour De France. He discussed his observation with Shaun Keaveny on the BBC 6 Music breakfast show and the seed of the poem was sown. Susie Babchick, Gray’s agent at RSA Films and avid Shaun Keaveny fan, heard the poem and brought filmmaker and poet together. Gray Hughes: ‘This film gave me an opportunity to play with modern stereotypes and push the boundaries of decency – just like these Dads do. If it’s acceptable for a middle-aged man to wear a skin suit, then it’s definitely OK for us to point and laugh. The psychology, language and clothing of elite sport have bled into everyday activity in a ridiculous way – it’s turned everything into a performance. You’re told to strive for king of the mountain, but you ain’t Chris Froome. You’re an accountant executive for a firm in Croydon. But you still think you need an edge - anything to win. It’s all or nothing; forget what your kids think’. ‘Lycra Dad’ captures the folly of modern masculinity at its funniest. Kevin Hand as Lycra Dad Sean Blowers as Beer Dad Annabel Giles as Hayley the sports psychologist Produced by Rob Wildsmith Cinematography by long-term collaborator Frank Madone Original music by Grammy award winner Steve Smith Edited by Benjamin Gerstein Hughes’ daughter; Eva is the screaming baby!

Traders: The East India Company

An installation video piece filmed, produced & directed by Rajesh Thind for the new Permanent Exhibition on the East India Company at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. As the 'Great Divergence' of the 19th Century, the culmination of the historical processes whereby Europe and parts of the New World come to dominate the rest of the world, gives way to our century's Great Rebalancing of the global economy, back towards the millennia long previous equilibrium in which Asian economies are once again strong, this film brings the past to life through the words of people engaged with building a new future. Through interviews and images, the piece opens up the history of the East India Company and of trade between Britain, India and China over the past centuries, and explores how and why that much neglected history increasingly resonates so profoundly today. Framed around a boat trip down the Thames, the great artery down which during the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, the goods and people of the whole world were brought to Britain, the piece reveals how - in part - Asia's riches built the powerful West as we know it. The film shows how the West and Asia both have much to learn from the past, as they confront the emerging 21st century and the slow, inexorable shift of power back to Asia. "Traders: The East India Company" (2011, UK, 15mins) Filmed, produced & directed by Rajesh Thind Film Editor: Benjamin Gerstein Music Composer: Benedict Taylor Sound Mixer: Gernot Fuhrmann (Pindu Productions for the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich)


15. Lockenhaus Kammermusikfest 2014 "Fiction"

Lockenhaus Kammermusikfest 2014

Wilhelm Killmayer (*1927): Brahms-Bildnis Esther Hoppe, violin Claudio Bohórquez, violoncello José Gallardo, piano 04 July 2013 Lockenhaus church, live recording Video is created by Pilvax&Oberyn Artistic director Nicolas Altstaedt www.kammermusikfest.at "Mein 1976 entstandenes Brahms-Bildnis ist ein einsätziges Klaviertrio von circa 12 Minuten Dauer. Es kann, wenn man den Titel wichtig nimmt, ein Portrait der Person Johannes Brahms', nicht seiner Musik darstellen und verweist im Duktus auf die Blütezeit des Klaviertrios im 19. Jahrhundert. Der Beginn - zunächst im Gestus eines Violinkonzerts - ist ein Zwiegesang zwischen Geige und Cello, zu dem später das Klavier hinzutritt. Eine im "großen Ton" zu spielende Stelle, unisono für Geige und Cello mit treibendem Klavier, bricht unvermittelt in einen chaotischen Abschnitt um, der schließlich das Klavier mit verzweifeltem Hämmern in die extremste Lage treibt. Diese äußerste Erregung wird zurückgeführt in eine quasi-Reprise mit einem cantablen, schmerzlichen Abgesang, der relativ kurz ist und steil abfällt in einen unvermittelt abschließenden stumpfen d-Moll-Akkord. Man kann das Stück als Psychogramm der verborgenen inneren Lebenschaotik von Brahms deuten und sein Bestreben, diese musikalisch zu bewältigen."
