SOUNDING IMAGES #8: Industrial Music and Experimental Films from San Francisco by Marian Wallace
With V. Vale and Marian Wallace
Cut-ups, analog tape loops, celluloid and fire. W.S. Burroughs and Kurt Kren. Performance art and direct animation. These are all part of the experimental films of Marian Wallace.
In the 1970s, before todays global Noise-Music bands and festivals, a few avant-garde artists and groups began using the cut-up, sampling, subliminals, noise, musique concrète, films and video and more to provide immersive Black Humor concert experiences; documented in RE/Searchs Industrial Culture Handbook. Marian Wallaces Artists of the Industrial Scene starts with an introduction by V. Vale and includes interviews with Mark Pauline (SRL), Johanna Went (Performance Artist), Genesis P-Orridge (Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV), Jerry Casale (DEVO) and other ground-breaking punk/industrial/performance musicians and artists. This short-feature (51 min) is surrounded by experimental films from then and now, which utilize physical celluloid-altering, unorthodox analog audio techniques, offbeat narrative, and documentation of interesting and unique events and places.
Marian Wallace and V. Vale (founder of Search & Destroy and RE/Search) will appear in person for a Q&A at the end of the program.
RE/Search books and zines will be on sale on the night.
The series SOUNDING IMAGES focuses on different approaches to documenting and visualizing musical performances, scenes and movements as well as close collaborations between filmmakers and composers, including soundtracks. The aim of it is to open up a wide range of perspectives on the interrelation of music, experimental filmmaking, and video art, including issues regarding race, class, sexuality and gender. Invited guests will discuss selected works and a short introduction to each screening will provide background information, sometimes a Q&A will follow.
The series is organized by Fiona McGovern.
