Mixology Festival 2020: Rue Bainbridge // Lary 7 (Owl Movie & Magic Lanterns)
In the second night of Mixology Festival 2020: Psychedelia, Roulette presents the experimental cinema and sounds of media art duo Rue Bainbridge (Gryphon Rue and Benton C Bainbridge) and multimedia artist Lary 7.
The light and sound duo Rue Bainbridge create a space for collective dreaming, where quirks of human hand and electricity spawn impressions of nature and abstract language. More specifically, Bainbridge uses a hacked game console, driven by custom video synthesizers, to generate light drawings. For Rue, these drawings become a kind of score for electro-acoustic music produced with a singing saw—an abstract calligraphy with visual rhythms suggestive of sonic arrangements. Perception shifts as images and sounds contrast with one another or momentarily harmonize in a zone of concentrated intricacy.
Juggling arcane technologies on the edge between function and freefall, Lary 7 fires up his magic lanterns and legendary Owl Movie—a 16mm cinema work exploring the possibilities of arcane film equipmen
Doors open at 7:00 PM.
Presented by Roulette Intermedium.
