An hour long film created for the event by b-side includes edits from the 1916 silent film classic '20,000 Leagues under the Sea', surf movies, archive film and animation. A live improvised soundtrack performed by awarding winning Bristol based musicians Eyebrow, Pete Judge and Paul Wigens, Tim Hill from street band Tongues of Fire, circuit bending mayhem, DIY electronics supplied by Hacker Farm Farmer Glitch, Kek-W and Bren, electronic exotica from Alex Mckechnie, Ram Jam on the DJ decks all mixed and served up by Andrew Cleeton aka 'Doctor Ordered' ex Hacienda resident DJ and our MIXMASTER for the night.
