from the official statement:

” Minute bodies: The intimate world of F. Percy Smith

Official selection at London Film Festival.
Premiere at 9pm, 11th October 2016, NFT 1, plus Q&A with Stuart and co-editor David Reeve.

Finally, after three years in the making, Minute Bodies is ready for others to see and hear.

Directed by Stuart and co-edited with David Reeve, it has a musical score by tindersticks with Thomas Belhom and Christine Ott. The music also benefits from great cameo performances from David Coulter (musical saw & nose flute) and Julian Siegel (saxophone)

The LFF describes the film…

‘This meditative, immersive film is a tribute to the astonishing work and achievements of naturalist, inventor and pioneering filmmaker F. Percy Smith.
Smith worked in the early years of the 20th century, developing various cinematographic and micro-photographic techniques to capture nature’s secrets in action.

Minute Bodies is an interpretative edit that combines Smith’s original footage with a new contemporary score to create a hypnotic, alien yet familiar dreamscape that connects us to the sense of wonder Smith must have felt as he peered through his own lenses and seen these micro-worlds for the first time.’

In 2017 there will be a small selection of special live cine-events, the first to be announced is Le Lieu Unique in Nantes on Saturday the 11th, and Sunday the 12th of March.
Minute bodies will feature as one of two sets for the evening…the other set being a special collection of tindersticks songs and music.”

UK Distribution BFI

A new collaboration between Tindersticks’ Stuart A Staples and filmmaker David Reeve, this meditative, immersive film is a tribute to the astonishing work and achievements of naturalist, inventor and pioneering filmmaker Frank Percy Smith. Working in the early years of the 20th century, Smith developed various cinematographic and micro-photographic techniques to capture nature in action. Employed in a number of public roles, including the Royal Navy and British Instructional Films, Smith was prolific and driven. He often directed several films simultaneously, determined to capture nature’s hidden terrains. Minute Bodies is an interpretative film that combines Smith’s work with Staples’ contemporary music score to create a hypnotic dreamscape of a world that is both familiar and alien, connecting us to the sense of wonder Smith must have felt as he peered through his lenses to observe these micro-worlds for the very first time.”

Stuart Staples, singer and songwriter for the English group Tindersticks, took an interest in the films of Frank Percy Smith, naturalist, documentarian, and pioneer of several macrophotography techniques in the early 20th century. He offers us a concert with a film made from Smith’s images, and a soundtrack matching both the documentary and abstract motifs. A new, exciting project for the Tindersticks.”

from the interview – S.A.Staples (babelfished version from french original) :

“… I worked for several years on this project, based on the film archives. It is an exploration, often a reinvention of the work of Frank Percy Smith, English director who was, in the 1920s and 1930s, pioneered techniques like time-lapse (effect of ultra- accelerated made frame) or microcinematography. For the first time, he revealed the hidden secrets of nature. I first saw The Acrobatic Fly , his most famous film, then I wanted to know more about his work. And the more I saw his films, more ideas come to me, the music seemed to spring. The title Minute Bodies , I borrowed the scientific treatise Micrographia Robert Hooke, a contemporary of Isaac Newton, who reproduced and released the first images seen through a microscope in 1665.

What musicians involved in this project?
The core is constituted of Thomas Belhom , Christine Ott, multi-instrumentalist David Boulter and myself. It all started during a recording session with them. Thomas and Christine are very special musicians, each unique. I really wanted them to be involved from the start. As for David, he brought enormously to the project. Since then, our journey led us to invite other musicians to join us in this world. It’s a very different approach from an album of Tindersticks. The images are both very strong and musically malleable. There are no rules, sometimes no indication of measurement … We could just destroy us.”

 

Official website news:

not announced officially yet. Also unknown if the project runs under the “tindersticks” name – though initial indications (Movie Concerts page in Nantes & other webbits) indicate that it might be so  –  more infos: t.b.a

In Dreams: David Lynch Revisited
with Conor O’Brien (Villagers), Mick Harvey, Jehnny Beth (Savages), Cibo Matto, Sophia Brous, Stealing Sheep and Stuart Staples (Tindersticks)

“The world premiere of a new live homage to the songs and music from David Lynch’s films

From the romantic songs of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, to the violence of iconic scenes in Blue Velvet, Wild At Heart or Lost Highway, sound is a vital component of David Lynch’s films – it’s in the wind, in the air, and in the people’s thoughts; his carefully chosen songs conveying his characters’ mental states.

Lynch’s songbook includes original versions by Roy Orbison, David Bowie, Chris Isaak, Samuel Barber, Marilyn Manson and Elvis Presley. In Dreams brings together a stellar cast of singers to reinterpret these classic songs.

His partnership with composer Angelo Badalamenti gave birth to one of the most celebrated soundtracks ever created for television – as viewers around the globe asked themselves ‘who killed Laura Palmer?’ to the ethereal tones of Julee Cruise’s voice.

Immerse yourself into the mood and atmosphere of Lynch’s universe, with landmark instrumental tracks and exciting new versions of songs from his films, performed by a superb band assembled and led by musical director David Coulter – last seen on the Barbican stage in Beck: Song Reader Live and Rain Dogs Revisited.

‘Sound is almost a drug. It’s so pure that when it goes in your ears, it instantly does something to you’ David Lynch

The band
David Coulter original concept, musical and artistic direction, saw, percussions and other instruments
Terry Edwards horns
Thomas Bloch cristal baschet, ondes martenot, glass harmonica

from the description:

Singing Skies

stuart does not work with written words, his songs are formed and exist in his head only. Though there are countless interpretations (he has famously bad diction) the words for the songs have never been written down.

Suzanne Osborne is a painter. Between September 18th 2010 and September 17th 2011 she painted the sky everyday. The result is the exhibition ‘A year in small paintings – Skies, September 2010 – September 2011’.

‘As I watched Suzanne paint the sky – sometimes furiously to catch the moment that was quickly changing – I felt the connection to my songwriting. Moments of connection when a songs come are so fleeting, sometimes you have to work fast to give it enough form to survive’

These 2 elements are brought together in the book ‘Singing Skies’.
