Bimodal Press is thrilled to announce the publication and performance series Gravity Spells II: Bay Area New Music and Expanded Cinema Art. The project is twofold: Both a physical document release incorporating original films, sound, music, and essays, as well as a corresponding performance series featuring over twenty-four Bay Area artists collaborating through live cinema, music, and sound art practices. The live series will be co-presented by the San Francisco Cinematheque and will be held at The Lab in San Francisco on May 19th, 20th, 21st and 22nd.
The Gravity Spells II publication houses two LP’s, four DVD’s, a perfect bound letterpress booklet with essays, color images, silkscreened show poster and announcement card. Four original sound and music works occupy one side of the two LPs, while four original films are contained within one each of the four DVD’s. These commissioned works are 20-minutes long and designed to be experienced interchangeably. This encourages a matrix of possibilities while emphasizing the element of chance tied directly to live muliti-media performance (dropping the needle on the record and hitting “Play” on the DVD player will always result in a different event).
The project has received funding from the California Council for the Arts and Southern Exposure.
