LIVE, MANIPULATED SUPER 8 FILM PROJECTION OF SONIC YOUTH/ PAVEMENT PERFORMANCES (1998)
1998, 8:00 min.
The black and white Super 8 footage was shot in 1992 in Pisa and Cesena, Italy during a Sonic Youth and Pavement tour. The soundtrack originates from an audience recording of a Sonic Youth concert in Leeds, England in 1985. In the original performance of this material at the Thread Waxing Space in New York City in 1998, the film was manipulated live on a variable speed Eumig projector as the soundtrack played. It is presented here as a single channel release. The re-staging of these performances in a new presentation allows for a studied look of a live show.
