Sarah McBriar, Creative Director of AVA commented; ‘After stepping inside the building in 2015, we knew we wanted to bring a part of AVA to Carlisle Church. The venue is breath-taking, and Max’s work is so original and visually impressive that the two coupled together has created something really special.’

Speaking about the performance Max Cooper said; ‘It’s a beautiful space inside the old restored Carlisle Church in Belfast. My main aim was to try and complement the structure with my music and visual projections, framing the imagery around the architecture, and trying to put together something musically and visually to match. I brought along a semi-transparent gauze screen to sit in front of me, so I could alternate between a high-res uninterrupted image and the broken imagery across the church, as well as blend them together. We also added strobes to further highlight the built structure for some peaks. Then I just had some fun with it. Massive thanks to everyone at AVA festival for coming up with the idea to do this and to AVA the partners for making it happen.’
