On Saturday OCTOBER 11th, ATA Gallery’s OTHER CINEMA opens its 2-part0PTR0NICA set, a semi-annual series of LIVE A/V performances and media-archeological re-discoveries. Cresting the new wave of expanded cinema, the Bay Area is certainly discovering new correspondences between the audio and the visual realms!!
Cross-platform pioneers John Davis and Sweet Tooth manage to create a third voice from the sum of two disciplines--old Soviet newsreels and hand-patched analog synthesizer--in the world premiere of their Spontaneous Order.
Brian Darr also brings his own synth, and gongs and ratchets, to conjure up ingenious soundtracks to silent films—Mack Sennett’s frolic of Fatty Arbuckle at our own 1915 World’s Fair, and local muse Kerry Laitala’s Sadistic Seaweed, a feral homage to the Musee Mechanique,just a short swim away from Treasure Island!
Artist-in-residence at the SF Dump, Jeremy Rourke compresses a garbage-truck of Frisco effluvia into a wildly inspired live-musical animation, A Way of Falling.
PLUS Len Lye; Mary Ellen Bute; and Dan Gunning on Flexi-Discs (and free 78rpm records!).
