PASTIS #40

WAYNE MARSHALL

Pastis are a series of short films made by our friends Marco & Saverio Lanza.  The boys are photographers, musicians and composers who have combined their talents to create these unique little films.  Each movie takes a simple action and resets it into an environment created by the film makers thereby making us look at the world with fresh eyes.  This is the core task of art. Marco and Saverio shoot the films, edit them, compose the music, and perform it.  These wunderkind from Florence even take the pastis out on the road projecting the films and then permoring the music live.   The first Pastis we're featuring is Pastis#40 featuring British conductor Wayne Marshall.  Watch how the boys recontextualise the maestro's work.

John Cooper Clarke is one of our favourite poets.  His tight rhythms and sharp insights have outlived the punk scene in which he first emerged, opening for acts such as The Clash, Joy Division and Elvis Costello.  He's one of England's National Treasures.  The following interview with John appeared in the English magazine The Idler which gives a great insight into his thinking and how amphetamines saved western democracy.
