Baraka @ Queen of Hoxton

Baraka is not like normal films. This is a good thing, because a DJ playing live to a normal film be would be awful - more sound clash than soundtrack. No, Ron Frike's Baraka is a sublime montage of moving moving-images, a 96minute dialogue-less exploration of the relationship between humanity and its environment. A thing of beauty indeed, but only visual beauty - which means the audio's up for grabs. Step up JD Twitch (of Optimo fame) to provide the DJ set soundtrack, in this audio-visual musical movie mash up. And if that wasn't enough artful juxtaposition for you, try juxtaposing the whole thing with the Queen of Hoxton's roof. Surely the best way to get glassy eyed this Friday evening…
