Saturday, February 23 at 8 pm
Doors 7:30 pm; $5 admission.
An evening of moving images and sound that takes the form of a “chamber cinema,” a “cinema of friends,” a nano-revelation that attempts to expose the infinitesimal, the marginal and the historic.
Tom Leeser will be reaching back into his archive and extracting work from the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, up to the present day and into the future. The program will include past collaborations with the musicians and composers Butch Morris, Mark Dresser and Zenna Parkins, along with recent projects with composer and trombonist, Matt Barbier and Alabama sculptor, Joe Minter. Leeser will finish off the evening with a reading of speculations for future endeavors.
