Celebrating the release of travel documentary Outliers Vol. 1: Iceland, this unique audio/visual event at Lincoln Hall features multimedia performances by several cutting-edge electronic music producers, including Deru with Scenic, Shigeto, Sweatson Klank and Loscil.
With dramatic landscapes born from volcanic eruptions and a countryside carved out by glaciers, Iceland is a mountainous island of desolate beauty, ancient Viking lore and raw nature: unpolluted and inspiring.
In October 2011 with support from a successful Kickstarter campaign, Chicago film collective Scenic traveled to the remote Icelandic countryside alongside photographers Tim Navis + Kim Holtermand and music composer Deru. With a goal to create a series of improvised, collaborative short films, the group documented their experiences with the stark landscape, cultural traditions and Icelanders encountered along the way.
The resulting full-length documentary – entitled Outliers, Vol. I: Iceland – will be released in June 2012, along with a companion soundtrack compilation featuring thirteen contemporary classical composers and electronic music producers.
To celebrate the release, Scenic will join Deru onstage one evening only for a live, multimedia A/V performance inspired by the journey. Soundtrack contributors Shigeto (Ghostly International), Loscil (Kranky), and Sweatson Klank (Alpha Pup) will perform full sets.
The first 200 ticket holders who arrive are invited to an exclusive live screening of the film and Q&A session with the artists in advance of the show.
