Thurs, Aug. 24th // Doors at 8pm // Show at 9pm // $10
new audio-visual performances from:
Doreen Girard & Marie-France Hollier
Join us for an evening of experimental audio-visual performances from some of Winnipeg's foremost contemporary moving image makers. This 5-act show focuses on the use of obsolete analog film and video apparatuses — including overhead and 16mm projectors, analog video mixers and much more — to fashion new live performance works combining sound and light in temporal sculpture.
— 9PM // ECLIPSING // Alyssa Bornn
(15min / multi-overhead projector performance)
a multi projector performance in which refracted light, lenses and layered planes construct topographic zones. Positive and negative projected space contend with one another in mimicry of celestial bodies and (super)natural phenomena.
9:30PM // EVERYTHING TURNS… // Aaron Zeghers
(13min / 3x16mm performance)
A shorthand study of the mythology of numbers, from 1 to 12, performed via 3x16mm projectors. Scientific tradition is adopted then eschewed for rumours, legends and defunct theories from across the ages. The camera pens a year-long almanac of space, movement and the passing of time using open exposure photography, light painting, stop motion, light table animation, hand drawn animation and more.
10PM // SECOND STAR // Scott Fitzpatrick
(20min / 1x16mm performance)
Second Star is a sound performance for moving image mechanics. Black and white text is laser-printed onto clear 16mm film, assembled into loops and translated into rhythm and tone by an analog projector. Photographic tradition is eschewed in favour of something invested neither in abstraction nor representation, reimagining the potential for an obsolete technology.
10:30PM // SPECTRAL REPAIR // Doreen Girard + Marie-France Hollier (25min / multi-overhead projector performance))
Hand-made assemblage of refracted light projections, performed with multiple projectors and lenses, with live sound accompaniment by Marie-France Hollier.
11PM // PAN / SCAN // Colby Richardson
(15min / multi-channel analog video performance)
Two overlapping video cameras divide the screen into left and right channels. Their feeds are played as audio, translating video scan lines into a stereo noisescape.
