Lutfi Othman is an experimental musician who composes through the improvisation of loops. A LCC BA Sound Arts & Design graduate, he creates loops out of abstracted moments from cassette players and digital recordings, each paired up with a guitar loop pedal (often used in conjunction with a sampler), through which he creates abstract moments, which are led by the loop and how each interact and change each other. As an improvisor, Lutfi is interested in improvising with recorded sounds and not instruments. He typically relies on found sound recorded digitally and on cassette. His use of these audio materials adds an added level of improvisation as he am unable to anticipate the sounds, or anticipate how each loop interacts with the other. As a result, each composition, and the moments in them, are composed completely spontaneously.

Part of the accompanying events programme for LCC's Screen School Beyond 2001: New Horizons, an exhibition that explores how activating the archive can creatively enable the development of new work and inform ideas.

Exhibition: Thursday 18 January - Friday 16 February 2018

Celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the Stanley Kubrick Archive at the University’s Archives and Special Collections Centre, students will produce and show work alongside invited artists and academics that offer new perspectives inspired by archive material from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

A cross-school collaboration celebrating all things screen, the exhibition will be set in motion with accompanying performances, events, panels and workshops, punctuated by screenings for staff and students.
