Intieme gitaarscore bij cult kortfilms

Steve Gunn heeft nog weinig introductie nodig. Deze virtuoze gitarist en songwriter releasete de voorbije jaren het ene meesterwerk na het andere. "’The Unseen In Between’ is the most immediate set Gunn has ever made”, schreef Rolling Stone over Gunns laatste album. Steve werkt aan een nieuwe plaat, die eind juni 2021 verscheen op Matador. Maar tijdens VIDEODROOM schuift Gunn zijn eigen werk aan de kant, en creëert een unieke live soundtrack bij vier kortfilms van meestercineast Stan Brakhage.

Brakhage was een Amerikaanse filmmaker en een van de belangrijkste figuren van de twintigste eeuwse experimentele film. Vijf decennia lang creëerde hij een immens oeuvre met een enorme variatie aan formats en technieken: filmen met handcamera, schilderen op celluloid, fast cutting, in camera editing, scratching op films en collages. Centrale thema’s in Brakhages werk zijn geboorte, de dood, seksualiteit en onschuld. Van Martin Scorsese over David Lynch tot Sonic Youth: allen zijn ze beïnvloed door Stan Brakhage.

“Since discovering Stan Brakhage's work as a young film student, I have found his films an endless, liberating source of inspiration. With his films being non-narrative, Brakhage often referred to his work as 'visual music'. As a musician, I find that philosophy very inspiring for my own work. These films I will perform with, ‘Visions in Meditation’, resonate with me profoundly with their mixture of landscape and dream consciousness. I am honored to perform with the visual poetry of these important Stan Brakhage visions.” - Steve Gunn


Steve Gunn voorziet de oorspronkelijk hoofdzakelijk stille filmreeks ‘Visions in Meditation’ van een compleet nieuwe, intieme score. Een unieke en eenmalige set!

De Stan Brakhage films ‘Visions in Meditation #1, #2 & #4’ zijn intentioneel stille films. ‘Visions in Meditation #3’ is oorspronkelijk voorzien van een score door Rick Corrigan. Omdat Stan Brakhage stierf in 2003, is deze screening met live muziek niet goedgekeurd door de filmmaker zelf en is uiteraard geen samenwerking met de man.
