Visual collective Flat-e join us on this week’s Directors Notes podcast to discuss their re-imagined experimental piece Ionisation and why you don’t want to call them VJs!

Ionisation (2005)

A hyper-edit to a specially produced score by Ultre. The project began life as a film to accompany a performance by the London Sinfonietta of Edgard Varese’s Ionisation. An inspiring 20th century composer who pioneered works that cross over into the electronic scene of today.

The piece shows what you can achieve when people collaborate in an unventilated environment where superglue fumes outweigh the oxygen 6:1. The machines were made by Flat-e’s very own fair hands and animated in their small studio flat in the east end of London.
