Canis

by Aleix Pitarch

supported by

  • Record/Vinyl

    In October 2014, I attended the Celluloid Screams film festival in my hometown of Sheffield, which I try to get to each year. I also had the pleasure of selling records at the festival, and it was great to see so many people excited about buying records in between films, of course this meant I was relatively tied to the stall, but managed to get to see various films of interest across the weekend. Robert Nevitt, the head programmer of the festival shows shorts before every film, a great way to get new filmmakers work on to the big screen, I remember heading in to see a new horror comedy which sounded pretty interesting early on Sunday, and prior the main feature was 15 minute stop motion film called Canis, which sounded pretty interesting too.
    The premise of Canis is two men are trapped in a house which is constantly under siege from a pack or wild dogs. This 15 minute black and white trip into world of handcrafted characters was an intense experience for 11am in the morning. The story was dark, and one of the things that struck me was there was no dialog, only soundtrack (sounds of dogs and humans), and the score. The score performed by Aleix Pitarch, is 15 minutes of heavy distorted layered drones, monolitchic static blasts and dark ambient industrial. The music stands alone beautifully if you have an interest in the darker end of music (and film music).
    Pressed on 10" grey and white swirl vinyl in an edition of 250 copies with hand numbered insert of liner notes by Robert Nevitt of Celluloid Screams film festival.
