Distributed Memory

Live Music and Projected Images

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Presented in association with Montalvo Arts Center

Distributed Memory, originally presented at the Getty Center, features commissioned pieces supported in part by Montalvo Arts Center, pairs filmmakers and composers in the creation of collaborative real-time cinematic works from the recomposition of found and new materials. This evening is the second in a two-part series curated by Julie Lazar (the first will be presented at Montalvo Arts Center on February 8). In Rotary Wobble and Horizontal Boundaries, Pat O’Neill’s formalized contemplations of urban and natural environments are merged with electronic musician Carl Stone’s live digital scores. Janie Geiser and Tom Recchion’s fusion of live performance, re-photography and collage animation, Magnetic Sleep, reinterprets the formal melodramatic traditions of Man Ray and Maya Deren.
