IN THE SHADOW OF FEAR (2013)
The fourth movie from the performance group FEAR.
Established in 1996 FEAR has gone through various personnel and musical incarnations throughout which the focus is live performances of improvised music and sounds with projections and all present drawing or doing something creative, becoming more than spectators, more than being a passive audience.
The projections used in each performance consist of movies of the last FEAR event; these also contain movies of the one before ad infinitum, a feedback loop. Alongside and layered with these are movies of Len Massey’s high voltage electrographs.
The RCA Drawing Studio is at present the main venue for FEAR events.
IN THE SHADOW OF FEAR features the jazz harpist Tori Handsley on electric harp. Artist, researcher and educator Len Massey on analogue synth and guitar, visual artist and movie director Liam Taylor on projections, photography and movie production. Guesting on this performance is the commix artist, joke shop proprietor, pie delivery specialist and silliness expert the fantastic Doctor Simpo.
