It's here! The video for David Clay Mettens' "Masks" is up on YouTube today! This performance features Brandon Quarles (alto sax), Autumn Selover (harp), Kyle Flens (percussion), and me! Audio was recorded/mixed by Alex Inglizian at Experimental Sound Studio and mastered by Mike Gillilan at Giltone Mastering; video art was created by XUAN.
The goal of New Music//New Film Collaborative was to create new musical works and pair them with amazing video art. Mary Kouyoumdjian, David Clay Mettens, Daniel Pesca, Leaha Maria Villarreal, and Kirsten Volness each wrote a piece including or featuring cello, and those pieces became the basis for a series of five videos created by XUAN. As we release videos for each of these pieces, some of the vids will include only visuals produced by XUAN, and some will be footage (and audio) of live performances of the works (which include projected visuals by XUAN) from our December show at Constellation in Chicago.
