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.
