CINECITY and The Basement present an evening of sound and vision dedicated to JG Ballard. Renowned for his dystopian depictions of the near future, his writing offers a vision of how the advances of technology and the urban landscape could warp the human psyche.

ZOOM LENS features live music, film installations and mixtapes, soundtracks and screenings including:

A Ballardian playlist, selected by musician and soundtrack composer Barry Adamson.

A film and sound séance by John Foxx and Karborn manifesting JG Ballard neurones. Mobilised by ultracolour and inframusic, anatomised hallucinogenetics and proximity psychopathagens.**

A rare screening of CRASH! directed in 1971 by Harley Cokeliss and featuring Ballard and Gabrielle Drake.

2 new short films and magnetic tape loops and electronics from Ian Helliwell.

VANISHING POINT, by Chris Dobrowolski & Leslie Hill – a video trail of vast landscapes and catastrophic incidents, screened in a series of miniature makeshift cinemas fashioned from toys and found objects.

+ DJ sets from Anti-Ghost Moon Ray, an independent record label, blog and collective run by four artists from Brighton; Bernholz (Jeremy Berns), Gazelle Twin (Elizabeth Walling), Acquaintance (Chris Chriffin) and  Great Pagans (Alex Painter).

**Participants are advised to arrange transport home, rather than risk driving with a displaced nervous system.
