Abstractions of Holderness is an audio-visual work by Esther Johnson and Saint Etienne’s Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs inspired by Basil Kirchin’s 1970s residency in East Yorkshire. Kirchin, an English drummer and composer, is known as a pioneer of musique concrète and has been described by Brian Eno as, “a founding father of ambient”.

Hull: City of Cinema is a three day event celebrating Hull’s filmmakers, television makers and cinemas, past, present and future.
