About

Sound by USCO. A kinetic alchemy of the light and electronic works of Nicolas Schoffer, Julio Le Parc, USCO, and Nam June Paik. An exploration of the effect-versus-content thesis of Marshall McLuhan's 'the medium is the message/massage "TURN TURN TURN, a film of the eye-shattering, flashing, rotating light sculptures programmed by USCO to turn turn turn the popular song into a rich electronic fugue on the word NOW: Let's take the OW out of NOW; let's turn the NO out of NOW." – Film Quarterly. "Absolutely stoned by the film. One of the most beautiful experiences of my film-watching consciousness." – John Schofill "A torrent of hurtling colors and lights, forms blinking, whirling and surging. Image follows image in rapid-fire succession, distorting awareness of time and space as the sensory bombardment continues." – R. E. L. Masters and Jean Houston, Psychedelic Art Ann Arbor Film Festival; Award of Merit, 1966 Bellevue Film Festival, Washington; The Museum of Modern Art in Paris; the Finch College Museum "Projected Art" exhibition in New York; the San Francisco Cinematheque in 1967; and the premiere show of the "Wednesday Magazine" series on Channel 13, WNET-TV, New York.
