Scott Fitzpatrick and Greenmist at Vangelis
April 12, 2016 @ 2:00 am
Unheard Sound Series #6
The final night of USS’s Vangelis residency for the season!
Film & Tape is the theme for edition #6. The two performances this night build mechanical sound through non-traditional sources.
Scott Fitzpatrick: S.F. is a visual artist (Libra) from YWG, whose film and video work has screened at underground festivals and marginalized venues worldwide. He studied film theory and production at the University of Manitoba, and began conducting lo-fi moving image experiments in 2010. Primarily a filmmaker, also invested in photography, re-photography, kaleidoscope and collage.
For USS #6 he will be performing Second Star. Second Star is a sound performance for moving image mechanics. Black and white text is laser-printed onto clear 16mm film, assembled into loops and translated into rhythm and tone by an analog projector. Photographic tradition is eschewed in favour of something invested neither in abstraction nor representation, reimagining the potential for an obsolete technology.
Scott Fitzpatrick premiered Second Star at Winnipeg’s Send + Receive: A Festival of Sound last season, we’re very excited to be presenting this work here in Saskatoon.
An example of Scott’s work can be seen here: https://vimeo.com/34548556
Greenmist: Local noise dreamboat Dallas Kruszelnicki lays down some heavily maniplulated tape scrapes.
Make sure to join us again in the Fall when we begin season two of USS. Until then keep your eyes peeled for off season events at LUGO, MosoFest, Drone Day and Sounds Like.
Thx for all of your support!
