a rolling mindI am happy to announce A Rolling Mind, my audio visual collaboration with Una Lee, will be screened tomorrow night at The Heritage Film Festival. The schedule is here .The Heritage Film Festival is curated by the incredible O.Funmilayo Makarah. As I stated in a post last year, I am always grateful to be part of her festival, this is my sixth year.   I am providing a number of links to check out her legendary film work and bio. I was fortunate enough to see some films presented  at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C and it is defiantly worth checking out.

Here is the line up for Saturday’s event:

Their VERSION 5 download EP was released October 2012 on Front & Follow (UK) and will be included in a 2013 CD collection of all versions and additional tracks. BLK TAG contributed to Music for Restrooms (District of Noise) and the STYLUS!BLACK!FACTORY performance at the Sonic Circuits 2012 festival. Zeromoon net label released BLK FRIDAY : TAG SALE – their spontaneous response to Black Friday consumerism and post-apocalyptic consumption – in December 2013. The pair finds influence in disparate pairings of dead media recording blanks, Peter Hammill, Wir(e), Throbbing Gristle, Coil, 10cc, Henry Rollins, Amon Düül II, György Ligeti and the accordion music of Aimable Pluchard. Additional assist on BLK TAG recordings comes from Doug Poplin (BLK w/BEAR, Bach Sinfonia), Mark Ophidian (Animals With Machinery; Crippled Black Phoenix) and PD Sexton (BLK w/BEAR). Thanks to Mark Beazley – Trace Recordings (UK) for mastering and to Justin Watson (Front & Follow) for first suggesting the collaboration. This performance marks the live premiere of BLK TAG and will include some very special guests on guitar and cello.

Bay Players Experimental Music Collective
The Bay Players Experimental Music Collective is a group of composers and performers whose sole purpose is the performance and advocacy of experimental music from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. We utilize traditional instruments, such as electric and double bass, percussion, trombone, piano, violin, and saxophone; voice; computers; and found objects. Our specialization is in performing boundary-pushing scores—works that showcase the use of graphic notation, indeterminacy, improvisation, installation, theater, and live electronics.

Khristian Weeks
I am an artist and improviser working in the fields of sound, kinetics, assemblage, and optics. My primary interest is in the process of discovery experienced through observation and experimentation. Playing a fundamental role in my creative processes as well as in their realization is the use of chance, non-intention, and natural phenomena to produce self-sustaining systems of movement, sound, and light. My sound work includes musique concrete, field recording, installation, and electronic, electro-acoustic, and electro-mechanical improvisation. My work also exhibits various types of movement, and reveals optical phenomena such as shadow, caustics, reflection, refraction, and projection. Pieces are presented as performance installations / interventions and as autonomous, kinetic assemblage-environments. In addition to solo activities, I create sound and light design in collaboration with dance, film/video and theatre artists.

Plus we’ll be screening a selection of recent avant garde short films in the middle of the program:
Two boys, in a harbor, talk about leaving their home and city. Although they feel they can’t live outside, when one of them remembers a dream in which they were walking inside the sea, the other reacts and takes the lead. In Portuguese with English subtitles. Filipe Afonso studied Science Information at Universidade do Porto and Cinema (editing) at ESTC – Lisbon Cinema School, between 2005 and 2010. In 2009, he studied Cinema at FAMU – Film and TV School of Performing Arts in Prague, Czech Republic.

2. Journal of Drifting Hours by Chris H Lynn. Live projection.
Drifting moments, lyrical passages, memory impulses, landscape studies and visual notations captured on unedited super 8 film.
