Total Fiction: Paul Clipson with Shinya Sugimoto & Jeremy Young

Paul Clipson with Shinya Sugimoto & Jeremy Young presents Total Fiction – A 16mm film projection event with live improvised score

Taking it’s name from Shinya Sugimoto & Jeremy Young’s forthcoming LP featuring cellist Julia Kent, Total Fiction is live score performance to a 16mm film reel projection by Paul Clipson that will change night by night in reaction to the properties of each space. Like all of Clipson’s film collage works, this will be frenetic, it will span movements both in stark black and white and bright analog color, and the score will be disbursed in a series of chapters. Improvisation, for Sugimoto and Young, is like fiction, and they’ll work to bring out auditory characters, narratives, themes and transitional arcs from the celluloid, while at times challenging the pictures to provide new meaning in new sonic contexts from space to space. Shinya Sugimoto performs on piano and Max MSP triggered processing, while Young will be utilizing his analog electronics such as reel-to-reel tape loops, oscillators, AM radio and contact mic’d objects and surfaces to build textural and tonal color palettes throughout the evening. 

This tour takes the trio, a brand new collaboration, through the UK, France, Belgium, Holland, Germany and Denmark in two weeks. Sugimoto and Young’s record Total Fiction will be released on the Copenhagen-based label The Phinery
