Synch Pulse – No. 8: Cars and Motoring

Presented by Ian Helliwell

The motor car continues to make a fundamental impact on society. Of great benefit in opening up the freedom to travel long distances and carry passengers – while simultaneously a scourge in its shaping of the urban environment to suit motorists, and the cause of a massive death toll in road accidents – the joys and pitfalls of motoring are explored in this car driven, turbocharged programme of left field short films.

ABOUT SYNCH PULSE

Dedicated to screening short experimental films, Synch Pulse features a themed selection delving into the archives to show vintage and contemporary work, with a strong emphasis on electronic and experimental music soundtracks. Designed as a free entry, monthly get-together for the uninitiated as well as devotees of underground movies and alternative sounds, it is compiled and presented by Brighton based artist-filmmaker and electronic music composer, Ian Helliwell.

Carefully assembled, each Synch Pulse programme will include local and international avant-garde shorts from past and present to explore a specific theme as represented through experimental film, animation and documentary, often with unusual electronic soundtracks. The hope is to create an ongoing series of relaxed short film evenings – plus occasional performances and discussions – to create a nexus for independent, left field movies. Future themed programmes will cover: architecture; railways; cities; sound visualization; space flight; world’s fairs; collage; analogue synthesizers; time; and synthetic sound.
