Space-Time: The Future
The Circuit group have been working with filmmakers Next Door Films to create a film about Wysing’s annual music festival Space-Time: The Future, held on 30 August 2014. Members have been involved in all stages of production including researching the performers, writing the film brief, shooting and interviewing, and they are currently in the process of editing. The film focuses on the importance of experimental music, the performers’ artistic processes, and the role of the festival in bringing people together and providing a platform for sharing new music.
The Circuit group are working on a zine for Curating Cambridge, the University of Cambridge Museums shared season – 5 weeks of of exhibitions, events, and activity across the city. The group will be reviewing and critiquing what’s going on. The zine project involves the Circuit group taking part in creative writing workshops, design workshops, printing workshops, and many trips to review and participate in the extensive range of exhibitions and activities that are taking place as part of Curating Cambridge. The group will be hosting a launch of their publication at Kettle’s Yard at the beginning of November.
