Solitude (with live soundtrack by Gagarin)

‘And my heart is falling silently / Into the driving evening sound’ - Purple Lips, Nico

A live soundtrack presentation of Nina Danino’s Solitude with Nico, Velvet Underground singer as icon, screen and poet. Gagarin collaborated with Nico over many years, and here performs a new score for Nina Danino's work. Made from four other experimental films and meditation on the River Thames by the filmmaker, Solitude is an immersive experience to be watched on the big screen, like Warhol’s screen tests - with an emphasis on the screen and film material.

This event is a gentle prompt to consider Nico, her work, and her connection to the Romantic poetry we hear recited in the film. Alongside this, swirling electronic music by Ash Ra Tempel, electronic guitar from James Creed, and arrangements by Gagarin and Nina Danino drive us deeper into music, into sound.

With extended introduction from Nina Danino and Gagarin.
