As part of The Possible

RVNG Intl. founder Matt Werth presents a program with enigmatic six-octave vocalist, instrument builder, theorist, cosmos traveller and conduit Bobby Brown. Bobby has become a legend in certain circles by way of two albums made ten years apart, The Enlightening Beam of Axonda by Bobby Brown (1972) and Prayers of a One Man Band (1982).
After years of correspondence, Bobby will sit down with Matt in person in front of a small audience to record a conversation offering stories of his life and work. This recording session will include a live interpretation of Bobby’s music by Bay Area musicians Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and Austin Cesear.

Not that Bobby Brown, this Bobby Brown.

Cigarette Burns: A REEL Book Release + Event with Paul Clipson
Sunday, March 9, 2014, 7-9PM

Will Brown
3041 24th St
San Francisco, CA

From Will Brown:
REEL is a survey of drawings created by Paul Clipson over the course of a decade working in the projection booth of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Skillfully rendering the cinematic moments just before a projectionist must switch from one film reel to the next without the audience noticing, Clipson charts the nearly invisible language of “cigarette burns;” a secret code best explained by this 10 second clip from the film Fight Club (1999).

This Sunday, Will Brown will host a conversation between Clipson and LAND AND SEA (REEL’s publishing team of Chris Duncan and Maggie Otero). Clipson will also screen a montage of changeover moments created for a limited edition of the book.
