Sunday, December 9, 2007
7:00 PM at Eyedrum
A gathering of Atlanta’s finest improvisational musicians perform to silent experimental films.
The Atlanta Fourth Ward Improvisational Ensemble, led by Roger Ruzow, will perform newly created live soundtracks to short films by local, national and international filmmakers. The film imagery ranges from abstract, hand-drawn animation to video “circuit-bending” to the grandeur of Madison Brookshire’s landscape film Opening.
Including several world premieres and new works by Atlanta artists Oliver Smith and Robbie Land.
Musicians: Roger Ruzow, Jeff Crompton, Ben Gettys, Ben Davis, Chris Case, Keith Leslie, Rob Mallard
NOTE EARLY START TIME: 7 PM!
We have to leave the space by 8:30, so the show will start directly at 7.

hole or space (2006), 16mm, 3 minutes
“Pricks, gaps, dots, openings, hole or space takes its cue from contortionists of the early screen in spiraling out from conceptions of the body as whole. The film uses early cinema and avant-garde classics as its compositional notes.”
