Gravity Spells: Bay Area New Music and Expanded Cinema Art
This edition consists of 100 hand-silkscreened gatefold LP’s with four silkscreened DVD covers of original film and music, a 50 page booklet of writing and images bound in a hand letterpressed cover. The project was conceived to publicly showcase emerging and established strains of expanded cinema and music collaboration in the San Francisco BayArea, as well as to create a physical document that captured that energy.
Although commissioned as pairs (Craig Baldwin with Maggi Payne; Paul Clipson with Tashi Wada; Lawrence Jordan with John Davis; Kerry Laitala with Ashley Bellouin & Ben Bracken), the edition is designed so the works can be experienced interchangeably. This encourages a matrix of possibilities, but also emphasizes the element of chance tied directly to live cinema and music performance (dropping the needle on the record and hitting “Play” on the DVD player will always result in a different event).
Music Mastered by James Plotkin.
