{{{Sunset}}} to perform at MyOpen Bar and Drambuie's: Cinema 16, Austin (11/13)

"MyOpenBar and Drambuie Present:

CINEMA 16 is a pairing of obscure vintage film programs with live scores composed and performed by specially chosen musicians, recreating the shared experience and awe of the 1920's silent film era. Austin is one of four stops on Cinema 16's nationwide film tour. This unique event will feature screenings by Mark Street ("Blue Movie" 16mm - 1994) and Ron Rice ("Chumlum" - 1964) and will be accompanied by a live performance from Austin's very own {{{SUNSET}}} who have so graciously scored the film.

The program is to include:

Blue Movie (1994)
Mark Street's 16mm short of repeated performances culled from old porno films and hand-painted. A man bends over a body, but what we really notice is the texture of the wall behind him. A woman stares back at the viewer with annoyance.


Chumlum, (1964)
Ron Rice's footage of the making of Normal Love with Jack Smith and some of his cast portrays the whimsical and sensual interactions between actors. The textural piece draws from experimental traditions as it flashes from flesh to color to movement.

The event will feature the screening both films and scores performed live by {{{SUNSET}}}, who have written an original soundtrack specifically composed for this occasion, DJ after-sets from DJ Wazaaaaap, and complementary drinks provided by Drambuie.


Friday, November 13, 2009
From 7:30pm - 11:00pm
At 501 Studios
