'No Moon No Man' Screening and Live Score
In the film, "No Moon No Man," two music producers, Suzi Analogue and VHVL, blend their styles, fears, and nightmares into one haunting storyline between two friends. The experimental horror film, shot in NYC, takes it title from an ancient proverb about the power of the darkness of the moon... perhaps something worth reflecting on as you sit in the theatre, enjoying the live-scored soundtrack by these musician-collaborators.

A conversation with Suzi Analogue and VHVL will follow the screening.

'Tony Conrad Completely in the Present' Screening

'Completely in the Present' is a non-fiction film examining the pioneering life and works of artist, musician, and educator, Tony Conrad.

“I wasn’t interested in propagating the culture of musical composition as a professional undertaking,” Mr. Conrad recalls in Mr. Hubby’s film. “Whereas people like Philip Glass and Steve Reich and La Monte Young, they studied composition and wanted to be big composers.
I wanted to end composing, get rid of it. I wanted it to die out.” - New York Times
