dB Films 2 : Screening of Fennesz+ Wozencroft's "Liquid Music"
Seattle's TOUCH.30 edition will feature the North America debut screening of "Fennesz+Wozencroft: Liquid Music" an audiovisual collaboration between Austria's guitar-extraordinaire Christian Fennesz and Touch label founder & curator Jon Wozencroft (UK).
"Liquid Music was made in 2001, in conjunction with the music Christian Fennesz was developing during that fertile period when the future was still a good idea. The first version was premiered during the Touch tour of 2001, the time of Fennesz's Endless Summer and the steady movement towards Venice. The footage for Liquid Music originates from Prague, Paxos, Crete, Cephalonia, Messinia, London and one short clip from Monterey Bay. It was filmed on H-8 and mini-DV between 1995 and 2001. The main idea was to film everything through the lens, with no post production other than the compilation of many years work into a coherent whole. Fennesz's music, and its ascendent quality, made that a pleasure. The optical quality is on the cusp between analogue and digital resolution. In many respects it‚ "an exchange of values as much as working methods." - Jon Wozencroft (London, 2012)
Jon Wozencroft will be presenting an introduction to the work and a brief Q&A with the artist will ensue after the screening.
