DESCRIPTION

Our third show in the ongoing Blast Phemy! series features outstanding musical soloists performing new, cutting-edge works seamlessly melded with a spectrum of media styles, including video montage, 3D animation and multi-projector 8mm film! We've got a collaboration between 8mm gunslinger Rick Bahto (who's exhibited at venues like MoMA, the San Francisco Cinematheque and Director's Lounge in Berlin) and composer/performer Luciano Chessa (who's an expert at both the Vietnamese dan bau and the musical saw.) Another of the evening's collaborations is a meeting of the minds between video artist Anne Bray and postminimalist composer Eve Beglarian, with a live performance by harpist Susie Allen -- and finally, we also have a live collision between animation and banjo(!), delivered by psychedelic specialist Jim Ovelmen.
