China stills Shanghai 5-12

Shanghai is dense, overwhelming city for the senses …Since 2008 I have collected quite a number of field recordings and images there. Some of the field recordings have made their way on my discs, but I still have many more to release hopefully. The film/video part is another story. I have two films that deal directly with Shanghai G7034and Suzhou/Shanghai but I have always wanted to do more. At the moment, I have a number of projects that don’t deal directly with the city, but I think that may change soon . Above are images that date back to 2008 and 2009-expect more in the near future.

A few notes on Reading Dream Within A Dream

Author, Filmmaker, and Musician Robert Robertson is going to be giving a number of lectures on Sergei Eisenstein next month at the BFI in London. Most of these lectures will be centered around his book, Eisenstein and the Audiovisual which I mentioned  a few months ago. Fortunately for me he is going to be screening Reading Dream Within A Dream-not sure what lecture yet, but I am pretty thrilled. He asked me to compile the location shots for the actual film to discuss during the lecture-so I thought I might as well post them here too. More on this exciting event soon-
