Recording: Cares/Vallée/Coderre

Artist: Cares/Vallée/Coderre

Song: unknown*

Recorded at The Tranzac's Main Hall (Mixed Input Festival – Night 2), September 17, 2017.

Cares/Vallée/Coderre - unknown

This festival was convened by local experimental film collective Pleasure Dome as an attempt to deepen the collaborative experience between musical and moving image artists, which was manifested in a variety of ways over two nights.

This set was a very even-handed collaboration that got to the heart of the festival's aspirations. Musician James Beardmore was tucked off to the side, generating droneswells with hazy hints of bent pop in the background while Montréal film artists Guillaume Vallée and Charles-André Coderre (known for his work with Jerusalem in My Heart) used overlapping 8mm loops and analogue visual feedback to project a swirling abstract montage. (This was a collaboration in the sonic sense as well — if you listen carefully to this field recording, you can hear the whirwhirwhir of the film spools in the background!)

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
