Kill Your Timid Notion is a festival of experimental music and film, taking place December 10-12 Scotland.
Equal parts live music, avant-garde cinema and visual art, KYTN is a celebration of artists whose vision transgresses traditional boundaries of media or genre; be that cinematic auteurs with notions of synaesthesic noise or free folk hipsters with a penchant for radical moving imagery, KYTN offers a unique insight into some of the most exciting experiments in performance and cinema today.
Performances include AMM+ Malcolm Le Grice, Mirror w/ a film by Bill Morrison, Thuja + Keith Evans, a Charlemagne Palestine film programme, Text of Light, Tower Recordings, La Cellule d’Intervention Metamkine, JÃ¼rgen Reble + Thomas KÃ¶ner and Sachiko M + Anthony McCall plus a wide-ranging selection of experimental celluloid magic.
