Lee Ranaldo (music)] & Leah Singer (film)
Special guest: tenshi to koukotsu
, musician, writer, and visual artist, is an original member of the group Sonic Youth. Formed in 1981 in New York City, the group has recorded and played around the world since that time. Since the early 1990s visual artist and filmmaker Leah Singer
has performed worldwide using modified film projectors and 16mm motion picture film that she shoots with a still 35mm camera.
DRIFT is an immersive sonic/visual environment consisting of music, sounds and texts by Ranaldo in response to two 16mm analytical film projectors performed in real time by Singer. Much as a DJ scratches a vinyl record, Singer manipulates her films in a live improvisation with Ranaldo's guitar, poetry and soundscapes.
