As is our wont, OC hosts the latest iteration of Gerry Fialka’s plucky low-tech fest. The Pixelvision camera, in case you didn’t know, is a plastic toy that records picture and sound on an audiocassette. It failed in the marketplace in the ‘80s, but in the decades since, electronic folk artists have embraced the minimal B&W aesthetic, creating a quirky new subculture within the field of personal cinema. This year’s edition features Bryan Konefsky’s Beautiful Dreamer, Eli Elliott’s One, and Robert Dobb’s TV Ain’t No Tactile, among a host of others…though the highlight may end up being Gerry’s legendary introduction, trading on lofty McLuhanisms, Joycean run-ons, and goofy puns.
