This film and music collaboration between filmmaker Jennifer Reeves and composer/musician Anthony Burr was originally performed with two 16mm projectors, a laptop, and bass clarinet. The two dual-projection films were bridged in performance by a musical interlude played by Burr. Developed between 2006-2007, the program was performed at Rotterdam International Film Festival, Dundee Contemporary Arts: Kill Your Timid Notion Festival, Tonic (NY), and Diasapon Gallery (NY).

LIGHT WORK MOOD DISORDER
Light Work Mood Disorder is a dual-projection film that mixes and subverts symbols of science, industry, medicine and madness. Side-by-side screens and multi-layered music immerse the audience in colorful rhythmic molecular forms, morphing frequencies, and visual textures, which are broken down to the particle level. Found images from the 20th century educational films are literally sewn together with melted down pharmaceuticals affixed to the film. The tactile imagery forms a concentrated fusion with pulsating sine waves, bass clarinet and organ. Illustrations of synapses, dendrites, electromagnetic waveforms and assembly-lines both create and describe the movement of the sound and light waves that envelop the audience. Intensity builds with the discoveries and destruction's of science, cinema and 20th century industrial production.

HE WALKED AWAY
A dual-projection film, He Walked Away, reframes and superimposes shots and outtakes from earlier Reeves films featuring landscape, portraiture and direction-on-film work (Configuration 20, Fear of Blushing, The Time We Killed). The score composed by Anthony Burr recasts the same austere harmonic material of Light Work Mood Disorder in a more explicitly "musically" coded framework.

"Much in the way musicians will mine their previous compositions to create newly evolved works, He Walked Away is a distinct yet nostalgic film. It distills what my eyes have witnessed and lost in 15 years of artistic growth: discoveries, vanishings, and essential growing pains." -Jennifer Reeves
