Jim Sclavunos speaks to Cut & Paste about Faustian Pact ahead of the debut performance in the Festival Gardens on Feburary 14, 2012.

Faustian Pact, has been specifically created for the Perth International Arts Festival, and combines spontaneous electro-acoustic and synthesizer accompaniment utilizing real-time electronic processing triggered by movement, light and breath control with ritualistic group staging led by Pellerano. The performance includes a 60-minute “cut-up” version of the film.

Silver Alert is the Brooklyn-based improvisational duo/remix production team consisting of Jim Sclavunos (Grinderman and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds) and Peter Mavrogeorgis (who engineered The National’s acclaimed album High Violet). They have joined forces with performance artist Micki Pellerano to present an entirely new live score to F.W. Murnau’s 1926 classic film Faust.

http://www.vimeo.com/9320025Featuring the extraordinary performance of La Fura Del Baus ¬†and scenes from the Beck’s Music Box Artist Preview Party we have created a Cut and Paste Remix of the Festival 10 Opening Night, Friday 6 February 2010.
Footage from Nicole Norelli has been cut and mixed against a beat from Paper Chain Records’ Taku.
This is a slightly surreal video that goes some way to capturing the energy of the night itself.
