BOOM, CRACKLE AND HUSH: Audio Art and Contemporary Experimental Film and Video

FRI, MAY 29 / 7 pm
Curated by Dave Barber
FREE ADMISSION

In conjunction with an audio listening workshop by artist Ken Gregory, WFG’s Cinematheque presents an evening of remarkable film and video which utilize audio and sound in very creative ways. Huge creative experimentation is occurring in the film and video community between ambient sound artists and the exciting hand processed work of several Manitoban film and video artists. Festivals such as WNDX, Send + Receive, the Winnipeg Film Group’s hand processing workshops and audio technology at Video Pool are all contributing to exciting, on going experiments where there is a collaborative fusion of ideas between audio, film and video artists. This program will explore the nature of how sound works as the creative underpinning by screening a mixture of contemporary and historical work.

Featuring John Kozak’s rarely seen remarkable experimental work Roomtone. In a room constructed entirely on a set in the Black Hole Theatre, the film explores the nature of sound as we hear the background sounds over the course of a day. The
program includes:

Carole O’Brien’s poignant film Homebody, created while artist in residence at the Winnipeg Film Group

Rick Fisher and Don Rice’s Foundation, which uses a vast array of video techniques to suggest the relationship between human labour and ecological demise with audio by Mike Germain.

East coast filmmaker Shi-Eun Kim’s Try Opening the Box was created for the Atlantic filmmaker’s cooperative FRAME X project. The silence of this film alludes to the sounds we can’t hear.

The third in a trio of found footage pieces from “In The Blink of An Eye.” from Collin Zipp – Unexpected Angel

Robert Pasternak’s remarkable computer generated Shatterglit

Blunderspublik’s Audio Glimse – an experimental short film that explores colour and texture in a claustrophobic landscape. The visual content moves alongside the trajectory of the audio, creating a loose narrative that builds to a climax, then resolves.

Clint Enns’ On Light or the Ingression of Forms – a homage to philosopher of light, Robert Grosseteste.

The program culminates in Andrew Milne and Cameron Johnson’s mesmerizing piece Loop which builds in intensity. Audio and video are generated in real-time by creating numerous feedback loops. The audio source is received via various DIY techniques from the output of the single channel video. Andrew Milne is a Winnipeg based fusion artist with a practice in The Exchange District. His active artistic disciplines include film,
video, performance, sculpture and photography. He regularly collaborates with artist Cameron Johnson who explores the manipulation of sound in solo and collaborative projects.
