Sparkgap (1968) 16mm, black and white, 8.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Ethnic / Multicultural, Landscape & Architecture, Literature & Theater, Music, Political / Social Activism

SPARKGAP is a film that may or may not be performed with. It is about architecture, city planning, Black Power, Sound/Noise, Boston and electronic theater music pieces. If it is performed, loudspeakers should be connected to the projector with long cables. On one side of the audience, two White Persons carry loudspeakers and move up and down the aisle acting very passive. On the other side of the audience, two Black Persons carry loudspeakers and act very violently with them jumping in and out at/of the audience. A fifth performer periodically shines a spotlight on the performers' faces so that their skin color is known and to remind us of other things. --R. L.

Third Book of Exercises (1971) 16mm, black and white, 15 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Music

A basket of continuos strand of tape is fed by hand onto and through a tape recorder, and the performer (myself) must keep it tangle free and sounding good. A piano player does scales. I do this. The film may be projected in back of a live performance of the piece. The sounds mix and blend and time delays occur, and silences ensue. --R. L.
