Rescue A Family will be showing our brand new vid for ‘Silence’ at Lab451 on Saturday in Camden, London. We’ll have our own room where the video will be looping, and we’ll also be playing a special 3 song set around 6:45pm. ‘Silence’ explores themes of identity and translation. Viewers of the video will have the chance to get hands on with the visual effects, hence creating their own unique translations, their own unique identities.

” On a journey with raconteurs sprinkling an inch of conceptual art, raw happenings, soundscape & experimental impromptus music accompanied by merry troubadours, poets declaiming their thirst, wicked opera singers, theatreoholics; performers of all kind feasting on the possibilities to encapsulate their unframed vision of our era”…
The idea of Lab 451 is that of a moveable laboratory for international artists to express & emphasize through their own unique art form; a language, whom as a Freedom embodies the way we see & represent the world around us.
The title refers to the dystopian novel from the American writer Ray Bradbury published in 1953 during the McCarthy era & the French New Wave filmmaker François Truffaut who wrote & directed a film adaptation of that novel in 1966.
“Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you’re there.
It doesn’t matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that’s like you after you take your hands away. The difference between the man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching, he said. The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all; the gardener will be there a lifetime.”
― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451.
