Rough Matinals

image: Joshua Dumas

April 2013 to June 2013

website

A sound and video series.

Some mornings, when I am very lucky, I get to start my day at the piano. I'd been writing these small rough sketches that sort of feel like nocturnes, but since I work early, I'm calling them matinals. From April 26 - June 14, I recorded a new piece each Friday accompanied by a video experiment.

Now available on cassette from Horror/Fiction Tapes!

The City in Which

image: Marianna Milhorat

April 2011 to April 2011

website

The City in Which is an expanded cinema project based on Chicago poet Li-Young Lee’s “The City In Which I Love You”.

Joshua Dumas and Christy LeMaster distributed fresh rolls of 16mm film to a dozen experimental filmmakers, asking them to respond to the poem and to their own experience of living and making in Chicago. The resulting footage is spliced into a combined short accompanied by a live reading of the poem by Joshua, a performance built from and informed by the filmmakers’ images.
