electronic music and digital arts festival

Zan Lyons vs Blade Runner UK,


Saturday, July 2nd 2011 // 22.00 // Auditorium S. Domenico

One of the most singular audio/visual performers as well as violinist, producer and director. Using his laptop computer and pedals, he creates violin and vocal loops while manipulating his tormenting visuals, resulting in an incredible effect. Zan's approach to film making aims to be organic. He directs, records, edits and handles the lighting for all his films, also while including complex animations and visual effects. His work has been awarded by Lux and the London Short Film Festival, Mtv2, and has been screened at Cannes, Onedotzero and Raindance festivals. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Ridley Scott's masterpiece Blade Runner, in 2009 Zan Lyons prepared a new edition of the soundtrack and a revision of the film. The result is Zan Lyons vs. Blade Runner. A fantastic live performance in which Zan rewrites the film score entirely and republishes certain scenes to create a complete never-before-seen show. For the 2011 Dancity Festival, he will be presenting this project in Italy for the first time.
