Another gem shown to me from Tom in Canada be sure to check his blog. Last time he sent me this. This time he emailed me to let tell me about in his words...

"There was a show that happened a few weeks back here in Vancouver based around audiovisual performances by artists or bands. The performer(s) would alter a movie of their choosing, then perform a live soundtrack to the film. It was a great experience and went over very well, given that the majority of concerts here are mainly without visuals."

and from the facebook event page

"Inspired by No Age's live scoring of the film 'The Bear', Alternate Realities is the reinterpretation of the idea of the soundtrack in film. How the usage of sound can change a mood or intensity within a visual context simply through different applications and fluxuations of that sound. The goal was ultimately to create a piece that exists outside of the original product and ultimately becomes something that exists within it's own dimension, almost as if it would be the version within another reality.
