SAT. 12/3: DALE HOYT’S BRAILLE + WHAT THE FUTURE SOUNDED LIKE +
Dale presents this deadpan video about his father’s career at Muzak, revealing some of the machinations behind what became known as “elevator music”, preceded by an excerpt from The Joy of Easy Listening, from none other than the BBC. ALSO British-produced is Matthew Bates' What the Future Sounded Like, a look at the early analog synthesizer scene in ‘60s England, with clips of Dr. Who and Roxy Music-era Brian Eno!! Keith Sanborn’s Russian research has unearthed a rare Esfir Shub clip of the revolutionary theremin, followed by Jon Roy’s W-I-P on the avant-garde hobo Harry Partch, Bitter Music. In glorious 16mm, surreal post-war Soundies initiate a mini-review of the music-on-film genres: the campiest Scopitones, as well as The World’s Worst Music Videos! Free vinyl AND free beer!!
