FACT TV – Energy Suite Trailer

FACT TV – Now watching Energy Suite Trailer.

Opening at FACT on Friday 12 December 2008

Energy Suite is an innovative collaboration between OMD, Peter Saville and Hambi Haralambous that captures the architecture and sounds of power generating facilties.

Electronic music pioneers OMD have had a long association with designer Peter Saville, beginning in 1979 with the band’s first release on Factory Records. In this audio visual installation, McCluskey and Saville return to the iconic images of their youth in the north west – the industrial landscape of power stations embedded in picturesque, pastoral beauty – fulfilling an early ambition of the pair to create what was originally to be a work based on Stanlow Oil Refinery in Cheshire (OMD wrote a song about Stanlow, using ambient sounds recorded in the refinery in 1980).
