A film by George Gavin, with poetry by Cheryl Moskowitz and sound by Alastair Gavin.

Cheryl, George and Alastair will present their short film provisionally titled ‘Fixed in Place’ (approx 7.5 mins) to the Bethany Community on Friday October 23 at 11am EST. The presentation will be preceded by a short talk about our artistic processes individually and as a team during our BAC virtual residency, and will be followed by a short Q&A during which we will be happy to take questions from the live zoom audience.
FIXED IN PLACE (provisional title) – A short film with poetry and sound
*presented in binaural sound, headphones recommended


During their residency, Cheryl Moskowitz, a poet, along with her collaborators, electronic composer/sound artist, Alastair Gavin (London, UK) and film maker George Gavin, (Brooklyn, NY) will be working on a 7-10 min film which will reference a form of lockdown, albeit metaphorical, producing a joint piece which reflects on individual isolation and particularly the opposing yet compatible states of sensory deprivation and heightened senses


All Saints Sessions (www.allsaintssessions.uk) was launched in October 2017 as a bi-monthly performance series in a 15th century North London church. The events are curated by UK-based poet and author Cheryl Moskowitz, and composer and sound artist Alastair Gavin, who create, in collaboration with guest artists, one-off evenings of spoken word, music and electronic textures in a quadrophonic sound system for a uniquely immersive live experience. Cheryl has been published in all the major UK poetry journals and has two published collections to her name, and two forthcoming in 2021. Alastair had an 11-year tenure as assistant musical director on Mamma Mia! in London’s West End and is now focused on electronic composition and 360º field recording. The third member of the team for this Bethany Arts commission is New York-based filmmaker and video designer George Gavin who has previously collaborated with Cheryl and Alastair on their poetry & electronics London show City On Fire (2016); Eternal Mother, a film poem for artist Hayoon Jay-Lee’s 2019 exhibition in the 456 Gallery, NYC; and the recent All Saints Session Milk Opera, produced in lockdown and streamed online Apr 9 this year. His work encompasses award-winning short films and video design for the theatre, inc. The Itch at the New Ohio Theater, NYC (2017).
