Hand packaged in recycled paper from Germany, stock Andrew has had since the mid-1980s.
The Light Show is the first of our new digital album and limited CD/DVD releases. The Light Show is a documentary about legendary projection artist Hugh McSpedden with an original soundtrack by Sun-Bus-5 performed at the 2012 Melbourne Fringe.
In 1968 Australian projection artist Hugh McSpedden began shooting 8mm film. By the 1970s his films magnified into large scale projections using as many as 45 or more projectors. In 1983, grafting modified projectors and lenses together, he created what is considered the first large scale projection onto a public building in Australia, Melbourne’s Royal Exhibition Building.
The Light Show was an avant-garde mix of interview and performance focusing on Hugh’s life in light that took place over four nights at the 2012 Melbourne Fringe festival. The Light Show documentary is a glimpse into Hugh’s work with extracts from the 2012 performance event highlighting his fluid and multiple projector array.
This limited edition CD/DVD package contains a documentary of The Light Show produced and directed by Andrew Garton, a glimpse into Hugh’s work with extracts from the 2012 performance event highlighting his fluid and multiple projector array. It also includes the entire soundtrack by Sun-Bus-5, remixed by Chip Wardale and mastered by Simon Polinski at Sing Sing Studios, Melbourne.
