Grahame Weinbren, Letters



Letters consists of an indeterminate number of high-definition films, each one minute in duration, and connected―in one way or another―with a letter of the alphabet. Weinbren writes: It is a kind of test-ground for ideas about cinema, both technical and conceptual, but also for another kind of idea, the externalization of an inner life, inasmuch as that tired phrase describes anything. Letters was exhibited in the 2008 Berlin Film Festival and the 2010 Zero1 San Jose Biennial. This program documents the soundtrack as recorded at EIF in March 2013.

Grahame Weinbren, recognized as a pioneer of interactive cinema, has made films and installations for over 30 years. He teaches at the School of Visual Arts in New York, and is the senior editor of the Millennium Film Journal.

RADIO SERIES

A radio series of programs recorded at Experimental Intermedia Foundation (EI), the legendary, influential downtown New York loft venue, incubator, showcase, and community center for composers and experimenters in the arts, known for being first and best at presenting (and recording!) new music and new media since the 70s. The concert series is programmed and produced by composer Phill Niblock who has been directing presentations at Experimental Intermedia since 1973 (well over 1,000 performances) and he is the curator of EI's XI Records label. In 1993, he opened a satellite space with window gallery in Ghent, Belgium. For more on the concert series, recordings, archives, and other intermedia adventures of Phill Niblock around the globe visit the Experimental Intermedia Foundation site. This radio project is a partnership between Experimental Intermedia Foundation and The Clocktower Gallery and its radio station at ARTonAIR.org. The series is produced and managed with the generous efforts of Byron Westbrook.
