Interlocutors: A Live Video & Music Experience

When: Sat., Jan. 30 2016

After Friday’s opening reception for its latest exhibitions, SPACES hosts Interlocutors: A Live Video & Music Experience, a very special evening of collaborative audio and video performances. The evening's program begins at 8 p.m. with the Celluloid Liberation Orchestra (Cleveland/Erie, PA) performing a live partly composed, partly improvised score to Georges Méliès' 1904 French silent film, "The Impossible Voyage (Voyage à travers l'impossible)," and to Germaine Dulac's 1928 Surrealist silent film, The Seashell and the Clergyman (La Coquille et le clergyman). Following a brief intermission, the program continues with Cleveland-based, internationally renowned filmmaker, visual artist, performer, musician and writer Kasumi collaborating live video with both the Silence Quartet (Cleveland) and Mike Crooker/Ron Pyrosonic Slabe duo (Kent) in an improvised mulitmedia performance. Creating an endless loop with infinite layers, the musicians react to Kasumi’s video projections, while Kasumi simultaneously reacts to the musicians’ sound, including feeding their audio into her live video feed for psychedelic layers of sights and sounds. Admission is $10, and proceeds go to the artists. A cash bar will serve beer, pop and popcorn. (Usmani)
