It's here!
The long awaited DVD of the work of Adam K. Beckett.

Come join us at the Mandrake to celebrate the release of this latest addition to our KINETICA Video Library. In addition to Beckett's six complete films, the disc is filled with previously unreleased material that's been sitting in a vault for over 30 years --- animation from unfinished films, loops made for light shows, a portfolio of drawings, and an animation collaboration with artist Kathy Rose which had never been filmed!

Get a short overview of these works from Beckett biographer Pam Turner, reconnect with old friends, and raise a glass to Adam's memory.
We hope you can join the celebration.
Copies of the DVD will be on sale at the party, but if you can't make it, you can order yours from our online store starting on Jan 7th.

See you there.

Unreleased Adam K. Beckett: "Red Blue Yellow" Segment -

Categories: [Events] 



To count down our release date for the brand new Adam K. Beckett DVD we are periodically uploading some videos that we were unable to include on the DVD. Why were we unable to include these? Because the DVD was getting over loaded AND we have much better unreleased and extra segments, interviews, loops and more.

This segment was digitized by iota Board Member, Pamela Turner - Adam K. Beckett biographer and project director.

Dublab

That's right. Our friends at Dublab are back at it again. In the middle of their Proton Drive fundraiser they play some outstanding music and fill their time slots with special live guests. Donate and get some great prizes or just donate and get a tax deduction. However you help they'll be glad for it. And remember, for them it starts with the music, but continues into other great artforms.

Clip of the Week

apres le feu by Jacques Perconte

This is an excerpt from a brilliant bit of filmmaking. As all media makers know, compressing and re-compressing in the digital age can create some unexpected results. This piece takes that concept and pushes it to an extreme. The pixels slowly degenerate though out the video until what is left is a smear of painted pixels spilling out across the image. Eventually, the image collapses to the point of being completely impossible to percieve the original picture. This is merely an excerpt. So, make sure to keep an eye open for it at a nearby film festival.


 

Artist of the Week

Adam Hyman

Congratulations to Adam Hyman and everyone at the LA Filmforum. Not only has their Pacific Standard Time initiative project of Alternative Projections trumpeted off with brilliant success, but they recently had a dense write up in the New York Times commending them for their intense and historically ground breaking project. If you are in the area and have not checked out a show you must. The next one will be held on November 11th at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and it's absolutely free. We'll see you there.

Clip of the Week

Punto y Raya 2011 trailer

Once again our friends at the Punto y Raya Film Festival have put together a wonderful program of new and old films. They have compiled them into a beautiful and delicate trailer exemplifying all the different kinds of abstract films that will be bombarding Madrid from November 3rd to 6th. If you are in the area you simply must make your way over. Many of our old friends will be included this year - Richard Reeves, Ying Tan, Chris Casady, Jodie Mack, Joaquin Gil, Huckleberry Lain and many more. There will also be a retrospective screening organized by us at the iotaCenter. Don't forget to vote for your favorite film!


 

Artist of the Week

Barry Schrader

Not only is Barry Schrader well known in his own right as a brilliant composer of abstract music, but we remember him best for his infusion of abstraction in films such as Adam K. Beckett's Heavy-Light. This coming weekend will be the latest intrusion of his brilliance in another category - curation and presentation at the SCREAM Festival presented by SCREAM and NewTown. The Southern California Resource for Electro-Acoustic Music Festival will be held at RedCat and be featuring some of the best collaborations of audio and visual abstractions created in recent years. As the founder, the festival would never have been possible with out Barry Schrader. This is on the recommended to do lists if you are in LA this weekend so get your tickets now while they are still available.

For more information about Barry Schrader and his work, please visit his site.
