Sound and image go together like peanut butter and jelly. Or better yet, like modular synthesis and analog tape loops, such as in this program featuring solo and collaborative performances from image makers and minimalist soundscape artists. Using 16mm film loops, Max/MSP programming, and high definition CGI, Portland media artists Mia Ferm, Brandy Gray, and Megan McKissack will collaborate with minimalist processed field recordings and tonal landscapes created by Felisha Ledesma, Reese Bowes, and Burke Jam. Marcus Fischer will present his own integrated audiovisual ambience. Co-presented with Tim Westcott, a member of local sound art collective SIX, the showcase will be presented on a high fidelity, quadraphonic sound system in the resonant acoustics of the Whitsell Auditorium.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
