Description

True Fictions is a live cinema performance by UK media artists The Light Surgeons. It is the result of a year long digital performance art project, produced and directed by Christopher Thomas Allen and was the first international commission by EMPAC, The Experimental Media and Performing Arts Centre in Troy, New York. True Fictions fuses together various media, documentary film making, photography, animation and motion graphics to create a stunning collage of performance video with live and electronic music to explore the subject of truth and myth through a multitude of American and Native American voices. The first performance was completed and presented in September 2007 at EMPAC and it has gone on to develop visually and musically through touring to many other media & arts festivals internationally. This is an except of from a performance in 2009 at the Microwave Festival in Hong Kong. The project combines documentary narrative with an original musical score that was created through a unique collaboration between 25 New York based musicians and vocal artists. This audio collage is now availble on a double vinyl record release from NLS Records and as a digital download. http://nnlr.net/ More info and credits can be found here: http://www.lightsurgeons.com/art/true_fictions/ For more back ground information about how this project was developed please visit this blog: http://www.avfolklore.blogspot.com For more video excerpts from the project please visit: http://vimeo.com/channels/truefictions More projects like this can be found here: http://www.lightsurgeons.com/category/performance/live-cinema-shows/
