THE ERRORISTS present The Ascendant Accumulation of Realism
20:00 Sat 10 Jan 2015
THE ERRORISTS (Andreas Köhler, cello, and Hilary Koob-Sassen, vocals and
video) will show several films from their philosophical popsong ouvre
and perform the audiovisual storyboard of a new film called THE ASCENDANT ACCUMULATION OF REALISM. This performance will be followed by
its interrogation by Booker Prize-nominated novelist Tom McCarthy (Remainder, Men In Space, C).
Hilary Koob-Sassen works with and across text, song, sculpture, film,
animation and performance. His work is exhibited at film festivals and
galleries internationally from Transmediale Festival Berlin to the
Serpentine. His latest FLAMIN funded film TRANSCALAR INVESTMENT VEHICLES is soundtracked by The Errorists, won the EMAF Award, had its UK
premiere at the 2014 BFI London Film Festival and will screen at the BFI Southbank on Wednesday 14th Jan.
Andreas Köhler studied Cello and Piano at the Musikhochschule Karlsruhe and
Musikhochschule Basel. He has played numerous concerts both in Europe
and abroad with the SWR Orchestra Baden-Baden Freiburg, and as a
producer has composed and released recordings ranging from symphonies to dance tracks.
The Errorists make experimental audiovisual excursions into sculptural
models of culture in time. Their philosophical pop song errors populate
temporary visions of what could be. They have performed widely at venues and festivals including BFI Southbank, South London Gallery, Sketch
Gallery and Steiricher Herbst Festival. The films built upon their
soundtracks have screened at the Athens Biennale, Serpentine Gallery, Taipei Digital Arts Centre, Beijing Film Academy and Tate Britain
