Music and Film: A Live Conversation
January 20, 2013 2pm & 8pm
Simon Fraser University, Goldcorp Centre for the Arts
149 West Hastings Street
Music and Film “speak to each other from different worlds, in a gentle, nonaggressive conversation.” (Fred Camper’s description of …Reel 5 by the legendary avant-garde filmmaker Stan Brakhage with the music of James Tenney). The Turning Point Ensemble will mount an innovative evening of live musical performance and film including work by some of the leading experimental filmmakers of the past including Joris Ivens and Stan Brakhage. The program will include a synchronized performance of Arnold Schoenberg’s Accompaniment to a Cinematographic Scene with the film Pursuit, Fear, Catstrophe: Ruskin B.C by one of Vancouver’s most internationally respected artists, Stan Douglas.
A cornerstone to the program will be two world premieres – one by composer and Turning Point Ensemble member François Houle, working with West Coast video artists David and Hi-Jin Hodge and one by renowned Vancouver visual artist Judy Radul. Both new works will speak to the spirited artistic negotiation between live music and moving image.
