Text Of Light (feat. Lee Ranaldo, Alan Licht, & Ulrich Krieger) @ Cinefamily

This Wednesday night Text of Light in Los Angeles! This is a truly rare and incredible west coast performance:

Join Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo, collaborating live with saxophonist Ulrich Krieger and guitarist Alan Licht, as he goes to the blasphemous extreme with live scores to the films of Stan Brakhage and other mid-century American cinema avant-gardists. According to Licht, Text of Light "does not perform soundtracks to the films of Stan Brakhage. Rather, it uses the films as a further element for improvisation, almost as [another] performer. While Brakhage intended for these films to be screened silently as films...[here] they are juxtaposed with the music, in a kind of real-time performance, mixed-media collage." But the evening doesn't stop there! The night also includes a screening of Parallel, an animation tour-de-force by mediamaker Huckleberry Lain, featuring music by Argentinean-born, L.A.-based electronic duo Languis.

3/10 @ 8:00pm & 10:15pm

Co-presented by NewTown and Los Angeles Filmforum
