Back after three weeks in Nanjing. A Fantastic screening! Deep gratitude to Librairie Avant-Garde and H.Rong for putting this event together. Great audience and some very thoughtful questions that went on deep into the night. A thrilling experience in such a beautiful place. I will post more photos later, but this was very, very special. Here is the link to the Librairie Avant-Garde page and description of the event, just scroll down. Text is in Chinese.
BTW-The poster is fantastic.
I am really excited to have Footsteps in the snow featured in the Audio Screening section of Sound Scene 2019: AMPLIFY hosted by the DC Listening Lounge at the Hirshhorn Museum on June 29th and 30. All the details are here for this exciting event. A big thanks to the DC Listening Lounge and the Hirshhorn.
I am thrilled to report that my film Liguria will be screened next month at NOFEST in Milan, Italy. This is presented by L’emergere del possibile & UNZAlab. Here is the program and info. More links and additional info soon. A warm thanks to L’emergere del possibile for their enthusiasm and vision.
Chris Lynn will be premiering two new super 8 rolls of the Journal of Drifting Hours series – Drifting moments, lyrical passages, memory impulses, landscape studies and visual notations captured and edited in camera on super 8 film.
Zwischenzug – It was only a matter of time before these three veterans of the DC Experimental scene would get together to do a post-reductionist scraping electronic meltdown. Chris Videll (electronics), Phong Tran (zither/objects), and Gary Rouzer (cello) have agreed to combine falling objects, fireworks, and glacial exhalation. Will it be a train wreck or the start something greater than the sum of the parts? This is yet to be determined.
A night of moving images in a variety of formats – 16mm, super 8mm, and digital video; with work by Rebecca Reynolds, A. Moon, Pat Doyen, Chris Lynn, Nate Scheible and Patrick Cain. Go here for the program!
Very excited to report the Miniature Landscape Correspondence with Una Lee will be screened in Italy for the Soundscapes and Sound Identities festival and symposium. Una will also be performing her own piece as well.This is going to be great!

Independent Film Series – a Cultural Exchange:
Local Filmmaker’s Showcase: featuring Chris H. Lynn
Mon. May 18, 2015
7pm (one-hour program, followed by discussion)
Hyattsville Branch Library
The Hyattsville branch welcomes Chris H. Lynn, filmmaker, sound artist, educator and curator to screen various landscape films, including his Trilogy of Summer, and a new Super 8 film.
The digital images and Super 8 films capture the subtle rhythms of movement, light, and sound in urban and rural landscapes (including landscapes in China, where he has filmed extensively since 2008). His work has been screened and exhibited around the globe and has recently been featured in the book Cinema and the AudioVisual Imagination by Robert Robertson. His sound work consists of field recordings, minimal compositions and audio from his films. His latest collection, The Old East Coast was released on the EchoMusic label. Chris also curates the Experimental Film Program Urban/Rural Landscapes for the Utopia Film Festival in Greenbelt, Maryland, which he co-founded in 2005. He has also curated the 2010 Takoma Park Experimental Film Festival, and occasionally programs films for the Sonic Circuits monthly showcase. Currently he is the Filmmaker-in-Residence at the Hyattsville Library.
All are invited to this community event to support and celebrate the work of Prince George’s County independent filmmakers. Refreshments will be served.
