Ghedalia Tazartes presents Haxan – Friday 9th December @ CCA, Glasgow, 7.00pm
In association with Cafe Oto, London.
AC Projects/Alternative Currents Ltd bring to the CCA this intriguing and beguiling marriage of Sound and Film. Haxan is pioneering Danish filmaker Benjamin Christensen’s notorious 1922 “documentary”. It is a bizzare silent-film oddity that explores the nature of witchcraft from ancient Persia to the then modern times using various cinematic approaches. French musical Nomad Ghedalis Tazartes, performing live, casts his shamanic spell over the film with his wonderful and mysterious gypsy trance minimalism soundtrack. His voice evokes a thousand memories.

FIRE! is a high calibre combo from Sweden featuring Mats Gustafsson from The Thing (saxophone/rhodes), Johan Berthling from Tape (bass) and Andreas Werliin from Wildbirds and Peacedrums (percussion), now with added firepower on this special run of dates courtesy of Australian drone lord and Sunn O)))/Gravetemple alumnus Oren Ambarchi (guitar/electronics).
Join AC Projects for a wee pre gig celebratory launch in CCA bar from 7pm with a special unprovoked duo performance from Martin Green (Lau) and Mats Gustafsson and of course a glass of wine.
