A beautiful mix of film and music is about to hit the islands this weekend.
A collective of Portuguese improv musicians called MODS will be performing at Spazju Kreattiv (St. James Cavalier) this Sunday. MODS create music based on visual aesthetics, making every single performance unique. For this event, they will be working with award-winning Maltese filmmaker Cecil Satariano’s cinematic works through a collection of short movies.
The night will see the group of musicians going through a set of improvisation and sound-painting techniques. Giuseppe (1972) and I’m Furious – Red (1970) will be screened together with live music by MODS, and they’ll also be collaborating with local musicians.
Musicians Carina Albuquerque, Rui Souza, Pedro Goncalves de Oliveira and Samuel Martins Coelho will be taking part in this program organised by VIVA and Valletta 2018.
MODS are calling out to local musicians from all backgrounds and levels to participate in their workshops in order to compose music together from a sketch score.
There will also be workshops and rehearsals at Spazju Kreattiv from the 10th till the 14th of April.
The event will take place on Sunday 15th April at 8pm at the St.James Cavalier. Admission is free, but prior booking is required.
