David Gryn, Artprojx on the selection criteria: "The selection of films was based on a simple premise - good artists films I like listening to. They all use music. They are all great artists. There are a few secret world premieres in this selection too."

The Open Road
UK 1926 Dir Claude Friese-Greene
65 mins. Colour. Silent, music accompaniment by Neil Brand
In 1924 Claude Friese-Greene (cinematographer and son of moving-image pioneer William) embarked on an intrepid road trip from Land's End to John O'Groats. He recorded his journey on film, using an experimental colour process. Entitled The Open Road, this remarkable travelogue was conceived as a series of 26 short episodes, to be shown weekly at the cinema.
When first exhibited at trade shows in 1925, Claude's colour process attracted the following comment: 'The Open Road, as the excellent series of English, Scottish and Welsh beauty spots and industrial glimpses is called, represents a big advance... it is easily the best approximation to natural hues yet seen here, many of the examples attaining what is surely perfection... in some respects the greatest British contribution to screen progress for years.'
The Open Road is important both as a landmark in the development of colour on film and as a fascinating social record of inter-war Britain. Tonight, at Late at Tate this newly restored version.
A Cottage on Dartmoor
UK 1929 Dir Anthony Asquith
114 mins. Black and White. Silent, music accompainment by Stephen Horne
Cast: Uno Henning, Norah Baring, Hans Schlettow
This early classic British film noir released in 1930 was notorious for holding in the
audience in suspense. Director Anthony Asquith – later known for classics like The Importance of Being Earnest – creates a psycho drama that would make Hitchcock smile. A story of the fruitless love of a barber's assistant for a manicurist and of the results of his jealous rage when she becomes engaged to a customer, told in a flashback during his attempted escape from Dartmoor. Asquith tosses in bomb-bursts of rapid-fire editing and off-kilter cinematography, and the pay-off will stop you dead.
These titles have been restored by the BFI National Archive
Raconteur: Steve Beresford, Scanner and David Toop
Musicians often live unpredictable professional lives, so make shapes from the shapeless with anecdotal exchange. Off-stage, the raconteur improvises with memory and stories in parallel with the musical improvisation of the bandstand. Making their debut performance as a trio, exclusively for Late At Tate, three notorious raconteurs - Scanner, David Toop and Steve Beresford - will attempt the impossible by playing amplified devices and seeing where the stories take them.
Tickets are strictly limited
Tickets available from the Rotunda Information desk from 18.00 on a first come first served basis.
Suzanne Fagence Cooper on Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones, The Golden Stairs, 1880
An extraordinary programme that attracted a massive audience but also impressed everyone who saw and heard about it. it added to the calibre and richness of late at Tate.
(Heidi Reitmaier - Curator Tate Education Projects)
Congratulations. Was a great selection. Really enjoyed it.
(Max Pugh - Editor on Michael Nyman Film)
I really enjoyed last night-- some of the films were outstanding, all were enjoyable.
(Susan Hiller - artist)
Absolutely flawless selection of films. My fave was psychoanalytical french rap (Love & Hysteria by Pamela Golden) also loved lots of others
(Ben Lewis - tv arts documentary film maker and critic)
Screening looked great. Auditorium packed.
(Zatorski & Zatorski, artists in the programme)
It was a fabulous selection. Feedback from the Victoria Miro Gallery team was great. Everyone really enjoyed the different use of sound and also the jumps between the use of video and film and the different ranges in budgets! My particular favourites were Jesper's, Alice's and the Zartorski's. I love the way mine sounded. It is the best I've had it screened. I loved showing it as a performance. It felt as if we were inside the cello. Amazing!
(Idris Khan, artist in the programme)
It w as a great event. People even clapped!
(Dexter Dalwood, artist in the programme)
