Luke Fowler’s 2006 documentary Pilgrimage from Scattered Points addresses English composer Cornelius Cardew. Cardew formed Scratch Orchestra with Michael Parsons and Howard Skempton in 1968. Their draft constitution, published in The Musical Times in June 1969, set out the framework for the orchestra’s work, proposing a fluid community where students, office workers, amateur musicians, and some professional composers would gather for performance, music making, and edification.
Fowler’s film will be followed by a performance by Basque artist Mattin.
The Fowler screening is a joint project with OtherFilm and Mattin’s performance is a joint project with Disembraining.
