Event Description

A series of 10 short films integrated into an interactive landscape, Chromatic Revelry connects the ordered harmonic scale of J.S. Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier with the chaos of rave culture. Shot on Super 8 film in clubs and at raves, the piece suggests a timelessness to parties, celebration and dance. The chaos is married to the musical chromatic scale, and stitches it to a formal classical dance training and aesthetic. With its archival Super 8 footage and Baroque music, the film becomes trans-historical, lost in time, and commenting on the nature of revelry, celebration and the human form rather than a particular moment in history.

Evann Siebens specializes in making media about movement. Now based in Vancouver, her short films, documentaries and media installations have been shown at venues such as Eyebeam, Centre Pompidou, MOMA, The Hammer Museum, Lincoln Centre and on PBS. Recent shows include HotShoe Gallery, London, UK; MediaArtLab/Urban Screen in St.Petersberg, Russia; Harcourt House, Edmonton and ‘Camera/Whore’ at On Main Gallery, Vancouver. Chromatic Revelry was made in collaboration with interactive artist and designer Sammy Chien.
