In spring we found a way into the building, cleaned up the areas that were usable and set up a studio. we began Inviting musicians and bands to record a live session in one of the buildings many rotten rooms, corridors,roofs and balconys aswell as the main theatre room itself.
The session was treated in a similar fashion to a live concert with the band arriving mostly unbriefed, setting up and playing in just a few hours while postmusic members documented the whole scene using 16 channels audio engineering techniques and a handful of dv film camera's.
On Oct 31st 2009 we opened the doors too a few hundred halloween dressed music fans and threw a huge party with live music, DJ's and visual artists.
13 of these audio / visual sessions will be available on POSTMUSIC Cinema Sessions DVD' released soon.
The Limited Edition packaging for this is made by me presents - www.wolvesdidit.info the DVD comes in printed plans of the building in a hand bound black notepad.
* Updates on this inc. photographs from the sessions and inside the cinema and more sneak peaks at the DVD will appear in the POSTMUSIC CINEMA DVD tab found at the top of this blog.
