Landlocked: music from and related to the films of Black Audio Film Collective

Jim Janco

The Black Audio Film Collective, inaugurated in 1982 and dissolved in 1998, are widely credited as one of the most influential artist groups to emerge from Britain in the second half of the twentieth century. This show traces the Collectives' remarkable innovations, references and influence by exploring their striking film soundtracks which resound with and against the moving images seen on screen and situating their formidable achievements within wider historical, political and musical frameworks. It features music by Trevor Mathison, Hallucinator, Jah Shaka, Creation Rebel, Rufige Kru, DJ Spooky, Mark Stewart and Maffia, Test Dept and Coil.

Jim Janco is a musician based in London. He runs the People Drift nights at Ormside and Venue MOT.
