Comments : Since the split of Siouxsie & The Banshees, Steven Severin has been concentrating on movie soundtracks composition and I was quite excited to see him performing his work live. Originally billed by the festival as "Le Sang Du Poète" by Jean Cocteau, the evening featured 2 parts, the second consisting of Steven's work "Music For Silents": soundtracks written for various shorts. The combination of the films and the music was interesting, but no cigar (and no guitar on stage either). Not being a huge Cocteau fan, the best part of the show for me was undoubtedly "The Seashell & The Clergymen", followed by "Magic Mirror Twins" amongst the contemporary short shorts. Sadly, poor organization had essentially ruined the experience: 2 and a half hours waiting for 2 hours of movies and music.
