One Foot Off The Ground – Kings Cross v3
"Documentary film-maker Malcolm Zammit and composer/performer David Plans explore the static and metastatic dimensions of King’s Cross from a unique perspective – one foot off the ground.
Zammit and Plans have built databases of recorded field sound and footage from the King's Cross / St.Pancras area, which they use to broker communication between filmmaker and composer, to create a performance as unique and ever-changing as the location itself. The filmmaker (Malcolm) chooses which material to display and when and how to cross over to different material in real-time, and the composer (David) builds layers of sound based on recordings of the same locations to build improvised responses to his performance."
