Peter Greenaway as DJ. Live Cinema they call it.
"On June 17 2005 Peter Greenaway, director of film classics like The
Pillow Book, The Cook The Thief His Wife And Her Lover, Prospero's
books and The Tulse Luper Suitcases, demonstrated in Club 11 Amsterdam
his first VJ performance during the NoTV CNCDNC visual art club
On music by DJ Serge Dodwell (aka Radar), 'VJ' Greenaway used for his
set a special VJ system consisting of a large plasma screen with
touchscreen, developed for CNCDNC by BeamSystems. Utilizing this
system, Greenaway projected the 92 Tulse Luper stories on the 12
screens of Club 11 in a multi-screen way and mixed the images 'live'.
The result was amazing: Greenaway rocked the crowd in Amsterdam's VJ
temple "11", blending his avantgarde cinematographic imagery (taken
from the Tulse Luper Suitcases movie) with the heavy movie score remix
by DJ Radar. Mastering the giant touch screen the newborn 'realtime
image conductor' Greenaway provided a totally new experience to the
audience: Live Cinema at its best."
And Anton Corbijn is now into it too...
