Stan Brakhage, The Text of Light, 1974

Wild Lines

19 Aug 2015

In response to Lives on Wire by Eloise Hawser, this screening event explores the use of sound in experimental film, video, music and expanded cinema practice from the 1930s until now. Through silent works, sound works and collaborative works between experimental musicians and filmmakers, Wild Lines becomes a sensual experience of sound and image and a tactile exploration of the ways in which they can reinforce or go against one another.
