Film premiere at CCA: 6pm-7pm: unticketed & free
Premier of a new documentary film exploring Scotland's underground experimental music scene. In spring 2010 three friends were loaned a video camera and seized the opportunity to explore contemporary fringe musics in Scotland. Part documentary, part character study, the film develops into an insightful meditation on the roots of creativity, collaboration and the artistic process.
Four hours of noise at CCA: 7pm-11pm: £4
Could you listen to four hours of noise? What effect would it have on you? What if you found it more exciting and more boring than anything you had ever experienced? An overloaded performance of overloaded music, with separate and overlapping sets from Boom Edan, Fordell Research Unit, Guanoman, King Rib, Noma and Opaque.
