dB Film 1 : Jean Rollin's “La Vampire Nue” with live re-scoring by Demdike Stare
Polarities in motion, Demdike Stare create tension that pulls vibrations through time’s prism. Refracting the familiar, they shape it into new forms that are almost recognizable, but not quite, leaving you stuttering for the right word, the right description. But perhaps there is where the magic lies – in the un-naming of things – for the sounds they create are not yet known and challenge how we communicate about them.
Decibel proudly invites you to enter a reconstructed present – percolating with fascination, fear & uncertainty – as Demdike Stare re-score surrealist Jean Rollin’s 1970 erotic horror film, La Vampire Nue. Experience what happens when a re-purposed past collides with an imagined future. Fall into darkness with us and ride the self-discovery that emerges.
