The performance was part of the See No Evil and London 2012 Festival with support from Arts Council England Bristol City Council and The University of Bristol. Curated by the Watershed media centre, the event offered what the Watershed’s website described as ‘a spectacular evening of one-off commissions and collaborations which blend cutting-edge music and film, including a commission which brings together Joanie Lemercier from world-renowned projection experts AntiVJ and Adrian Utley from acclaimed band Portishead. Drawing on the extraordinary film archive of the General Post Office Film unit and the rich history of Bristol’s Enterprise Zone the programme brought together a host of world-renowned musicians and artists to perform in one of Bristol's most iconic buildings - The Digby Wyatt Building at Temple Meads.’ The event brought together film and music to explore themes of industry, modernity, technology and communication, juxtaposing Bristol’s industrial past with the technological present. The performance sold out, with an audience of 2,500.
