Join film-maker Marisa Zanotti and composer Matthew Whiteside of Spin Network, together with Magnetic North’s artistic director Nicholas Bone to find out more about the development of We Are All Made of Stars.
The artists will offer an insight into their research and process, which has included studio time with Milton Lopes and Victoria Liddelle in work with performance and aerial dance, exploring 360 technologies in a shoot at Summerhall’s Demonstration Room, devising sound recording and mixing techniques, exploring sound and picture archives such as the NASA archive and talking to Dr Sheila Gilheany of the Institute of Physics in Ireland.
Spin Network is the creative partnership of filmmaker Marisa Zanotti and composer Matthew Whiteside, who met as part of Magnetic North’s residency programme Rough Mix.  They very quickly realised they had shared interests: responding to the poetic language of quantum physics, expanding perception through new technologies and exploring collaborative processes. Since 2016 they have emailed almost daily, exchanging ideas about composition from their very different processes toward creating a collaborative space.
