Color + Form + Frequency = Memory and Dreams
Is a multimedia event featuring live music, video, film, and original instruments curated by composer, musician, sound artist, and instrument builder David Molina.
The evening features Mickey Tachibana, founder of the legendary Drum Machine Museum, on various vintage synthesizers, drum machines, and rare electronic processors
to create sonic textures based on classic electronic music pioneers such as Klaus Schulze & Tangerine Dream. He also has created original reactive video art to accompany his music.
Electronic musician and instrument builder Garrett La Fever collaborated with Molina in creating the instrument/installation Memory Web, which also features reactive video art by Tachibana. 80% of the instrument was built using materials found at salvage yards. The latest version features 28 piano strings which when played trigger and manipulate the video images.
Audiences have described the improvised performances on Memory Web as haunting, dark, meditative, future-primitive, Japanese sounding, and industrial trance inducing journeys.
Closing the evening will be experimental filmmaker Anna Geyer and Molina performing Lost and Found, a live film and soundtrack. Geyer hand processes 16mm film to create dreamy degraded images and color fields, which are both haunting and nostalgic. She then takes the film and cuts them into loops of various lengths.
For this piece she will mix the loops by hand on 4 modified projectors while Molina performs an improvised soundtrack on various acoustic and electronic instruments, and found objects.
