Glasgow based filmmaker and 2012 Turner Prize nominee Luke Fowler’s kaleidoscopic and enigmatic view of the life and work of composer Cornelius Cardew, founder of experimental musical collective the Scratch Orchestra (1968 - 1973).
Juxtaposing first-person interviews, recent and archive footage, still photographs, short animated sequences and predominantly unreleased music, Fowler has created an appropriately unconventional and compelling film-work, which highlights the issues raised by and the synergies between Cardew’s and his own creative practice.
