We’re Just Going To Do It Anyway – Culture Laser

May 18, 2014

We spent a day at the fabulous Hidden Door Festival at the start of April and spoke with Dave Martin, one of the founders and organisers of the event as well as a number of the artists who took part. These include Harriette Yarrington talking about her turtle skull sculptures, Paddy Hare on improvisation, Alicja Pawluczuk on managing a cinema space and participatory video, Jenny Smith on her short film involving shadows in a monastery, Graeme Smith discussing his multimedia presentation involving 180 eggs labelled good and bad and Ed Stack on his ambitious Decagram event. Featuring music from BEDS and a track from Numbers Are Futile. Support Hidden Door by heading to their fundraising event on 17 May at the Liquid Rooms in Edinburgh. Presented by Ryan Van Winkle and produced by Colin Fraser of Culture Laser Productions.

Tiered pricing ensures those most inquisitive for a bit of independent film and audio/visual collaboration (7pm) can stay right through the gig (9pm) to the club night (11pm) for only £3.

Whilst those arriving later for what they prefer about the night don’t pay an arm and a leg (gig £4; club £4/£6).

The headline band for the gig *is* the band for the club night, and plays at 11pm before the club price goes up to £6 (midnight) for the live electronic set and/or DJs.

Culture Laser Collaborates

July 9, 2013

In this edition of the Culture Laser I have a chat with Ed Stack of Ten Tracks and Decagram about his project to bring collaboration to the music community in Edinburgh, Rachel Anderson of Small Feet Little Toes & Dave Wheatley are also here to tell us about their collaboration, and we get the chance to hear tracks from both of them and also the track Supersonic Speed Freak from Numbers Are Futile.

And it’s all at the click of a little sideways triangle.
