On Saturday, December 8, ATA Gallery’s OTHER CINEMA presents an obsolete-media extravaganza that indulges our love for forgotten formats and media-archaeology lore.
Featured is Jeremy Rourke & Co., with live musical performances to two lovely movies, The Biography of a Motion Picture Camera and The Paperman May Charleston.
Ben Wood, in the apparel of none other than Eadweard Muybridge, affords us a marvelous glimpse into those halcyon days of the Magic Lantern.
Doug Katelus, as Hammond organist for the night, offers his 16mm Help Keep Film Dead, on the last days of Monaco Lab!
Lori Varga, as high priestess for tonight’s “church,” powers up her 4 projectors in Beyond the Frames of Light and Strange Sound.
PLUS Russ Forster with an in-person tribute to Bill Lear, inventor of the eponymous jet AND the 8-track tape!
ALSO a half-hr cut of the BBC’s Alchemists of Sound, on the UK Radiophonic Workshop, boasting Doctor Who composer Delia Derbyshire.
