Showing at Disney/Calarts Theater

My visual/music piece the Firebird (with music by Kenji Williams) will be screened at Redcat Disney/Calarts Theater this fall, along with a fascinating program curated and organized by the Center for Visual Music. I'm pleased they chose an image from my piece to represent the event for the calendar, thank you!

Jack H. Skirball Series

Lichtspiel: Contemporary Abstract Animation and Visual Music
Los Angeles premieres

Co-presented with Center for Visual Music

“Joost Rekveld has provided an undeniable masterpiece with #37.” International Film Festival Rotterdam

This ravishing “play of light” explores rhythmic abstractions in the cinematic tradition of Oskar Fischinger and visual music animation. The centerpiece of the program is the Los Angeles debut of Joost Rekveld’s #37 (Netherlands, 2009, 31 min., 35mm CinemaScope), a stunningly beautiful study of the propagation and diffraction of light through crystalline structures. Sure to bend more than a few minds, the lineup also offers award-winning animated shorts from around the world, most of which are screening in L.A. for the first time. Featured artists include Spot Draves, Robert Seidel, Steven Woloshen, Bärbel Neubauer, Thorsten Fleisch, Bret Battey, Michael Scroggins, Samantha Krukowski, Mondi, Devon Damonte, Scott Nyerges, Vivek Patel and Yusuke Nakajima. Plus the final film by the late CGI wizard Richard “Doc” Baily.
