The Twenty-fourth Annual Festival with no fancy name, Part Two (or B)
Phill Niblock, curator

Walter Branchi (Italy)

 Thursday 14

I think of music in a systemic way; I think of my music as a single, great composition formed of parts that can be performed separately but are not isolated from one another; I think of my music as a whole (as an “Intero”), which will take my entire life to compose and which will never be completed; “Un grande canto,” where every part includes the whole and is included by it; what I am going to present tonight are three recent parts of Intero -  In memoriam György Ligeti - Sensibile - Behold.; and a time lapse video: Blue Mountain Lake that Kristin Jones has been working on that is set to my music     walter-branchi.com

Grahame Weinbren (USA)
Sunday 24
Letters consists of an indeterminate number of films, each one minute in duration, and connected―in one way or another―with a letter of the alphabet. 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     grahameweinbren.net
