Cinekoncerts are a key element of Edgar Pêra’s praxis – the key, actually, for it is here that many of his most important impulses meet: his passion for music, his impatience with anything looking artistically too set and fixed, plus his love for all things performance. Equally key are the writings of Howard Phillips Lovecraft, whose darkly visionary words waft through works by Pêra as formally diverse as the 3D-photofilm Stillness (2014) or Caminhos magnétykos.

Here, excerpts from Lovecraft texts (read by Keith Esher Davis) are set to images, sometimes 2D and sometimes 3D, remixed in-situ by long-time collaborator Claudio Vasques with video images captured by Pêra during the performance itself, all powered by live music courtesy of Paulo Furtado as Randolph Carter (aka The Legendary Tigerman), with performative interventions by Caminhos magnétykos' female lead Iris Cayatte – and the one and only Dominique Pinon. This is the true definition of an event! This you will never ever get to see again!
