If you missed The Filson Historical Society’s packed June 13th screening of this rare, amateur film footage of Louisville, Indianapolis, and the region, here’s your chance to see it at Dreamland!

In 2013 The Filson, with support from the community through a Power2Give.org fundraising campaign, preserved three historic films from the Judge Arthur E. Hopkins Collection. Judge Hopkins (1881-1944) was a Louisville attorney, judge, alderman and member of the Board of Directors of The Filson with a passion for film and photography.

For the past year Filson archivists have worked to bring these historic Louisville films back to life.  Join us at this screening to see these rare scenes of downtown Louisville, Indianapolis, the Kentucky Derby, Bowman Field, Cherokee and Iroquois Parks, and more!

The films will be shown at Dreamland (810 E. Market St., behind Decca) on a loop throughout the event, with a Kentucky-themed soundtrack curated by Nathan Salsburg of the Alan Lomax Archives. Filson staff members will be on hand to provide historical information about the films. Refreshments will be available.

TOUCH AC is an up-and-coming Louisville hip-hop artist who, when not creating and performing spoken word poetry and hip-hop music, “enjoys hot wings. “

Visiting Nurse Live

Comprised of electronic drums, keyboards, bass, and effected guitar, VISITING NURSE features long time collaborators Jon Hill, Mike Seymour, and Syd Bishop creating music that seems to somehow straddle the gap between the organic and inorganic, a cyborg pastiche of jazz influenced composition, and rigid structures. For fans of Boards of Canada, Clams Casino, and Biosphere.

Local electronic wanderer SHEDDING strikes up the modular synth and sparks fire for this unique evening of joyous sounds.

Dreamland is proud to present:

A Screening of ONGOING BOX

with Filmmaker DAVID BERNABO

plus a special live music performance!

Friday, July 25th
at DREAMLAND
810 E. Market Street (in the alley behind Decca Restaurant)
Doors open at 7 PM
$10
Advance online tickets available here: http://www.ticketfly.com/event/638265-ongoing-box-screening-louisville/
Facebook invitation: https://www.facebook.com/events/751970568200738
Recommended if you like: Errol Morris

The evening will feature a screening of ONGOING BOX, the debut documentary from musician/artist David Bernabo, that details the role of process in the arts with several Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based artists. Conceptual artist Lenka Clayton creates new works in her “Residency in Motherhood” series while movement theater artist Mark C. Thompson works with miming and sculptural movement for a piece on predation. Blaine Siegel works across mediums to develop new diamond-shaped paintings, a dance installation, and a large video work. The definition of “artist” is also expanded to include Kevin Sousa, chef and owner of Union Pig and Chicken, Superior Motors, and formerly Salt of the Earth, as he forages the formerly steel-infused neighborhood of Braddock, PA for wild edibles. Through studio works-in-progress, performance, interview, and filmed experiments with smoke/motors/ice, the film documents a cultural landscape that revels in new collaborations, new work, and a strangely freeing lack of commercial expectation. Other participants include choreographer Maree ReMalia, painter Stephanie Armbruster, photographer Garret Jones, and luthier Raymond Morin (of Pairdown).

The event will start with a short set of double-neck, 16-string guitar compositions. Bernabo created the score, mainly consisting of guitar solos and duos with two Pittsburgh-made guitars. The soundtrack is released on a limited edition double 7″ on Wild Kindness Records/Host Skull Ongoing Box.

Watch the trailer for ONGOING BOX here:

DAVID BERNABO has been a fixture on the Pittsburgh music and art scenes for the past eleven years, actively participating in bands, dance ensembles, art initiatives, and film-making. David currently performs and composes for the band/art ensemble Host Skull, dances with Maree ReMalia | merrygogo and MODULES, and is preparing installation work for the Pittsburgh Biennial and a two-person show at SPACE Gallery in 2016. In 2014, David is preparing the score for Mark C. Thompson’s evening-length movement theater piece, finishing work on the third Host Skull LP and limited edition lathe cut records, is curating a listening room for the Pittsburgh Biennial, and is beginning work on a new documentary on the history of restaurants in Pittsburgh.

Dreamland is proud to present:

JEREMY BIBLE (Akron, OH)

and

CONNOR WALDMAN (Louisville, KY)

Thursday, July 24th
at DREAMLAND
810 E. Market Street (in the alley behind Decca Restaurant)
Doors open at 7 PM
$7
Advance online tickets available here: http://www.ticketfly.com/event/634877-jeremy-bible-louisville/
Facebook invitation: https://www.facebook.com/events/683241158429283/
Recommended if you like: Cabaret Voltaire, Boards of Canada, Chris and Cosey

JEREMY BIBLE is an Ohio based interdisciplinary artist and founder of Experimedia. For two decades, Jeremy has explored the fringes of media through sound, visual and installation works.

BIBLE’s jittery splutter of tone into jagged sawtooth patterns and erratic squiggle recalls some of the polydactyl, generative work from Keith Fullerton Whitman or the scabrous digital errata of Florian Hecker. At times, it’s a frenzied, furious work; and at others, it can be austerely designed in the vein of Tietchens.” -aquariusrecords.org

“The incredible array of sounds that JEREMY BIBLE juggles is impressive and he does so gracefully, leaving just enough room for these compositions to stretch their legs and find their footing.” -factmag.com

CWaldman

CONNOR WALDMAN hails from St. Louis’ diverse experimental scene, and currently resides in Louisville. Within his music, elements of lush throbbing electronics, African rhythms, and haunting motives bleed together to create distinct sonic narratives.

A Live Musical Performance by JASON LESCALLEET

Notes on Trophy Tape by JASON LESCALLEET:

“In 2012, Erstwhile Records released the 2xCD called SONGS ABOUT NOTHING.
This album was received very well by friends, fans, and critics and appeared on many year-end lists:
(yearendlists.com/2012/12/wire-top-50-release-of-2012).

“In 2013, I began soliciting artists to create videos for the 13 tracks that comprise the first disc of SONGS ABOUT NOTHING. I found 13 different artists whose work I respect and admire. 13 artists who understand my music in a way that allows them to create a visual interpretation for an otherwise abstract art form. The results vary greatly in approach and style, but the music maintains a cohesive thread that commands the full attention of viewers for the entire 36 minutes.

“I finally completed this project in 2014 and embarked on a short screening tour to showcase these beautiful videos on large screens. It is my goal to screen TROPHY TAPE in each of the cities represented by the 13 collaborators.”

Tracklisting of artists represented on Trophy Tape:

1.) “The Beauty of Independent Music” – Aaron Dilloway [Oberlin, OH]
2.) “Old Theme” – Ellen Frances [New York, NY]
3.) “Tarnished Copper (Copper Will Never Be Gold)” – Annie Feldmeier Adams [Chicago, IL]
4.) “The Loop” – Justin Meyers [Minneapolis, MN]
5.) “Euphoric Sting” – Antony Milton [Wellington, New Zealand]
6.) “Beauty Is A Bowtie (HTDW)” – C Spencer Yeh [New York, NY]
7.) “The Power of Pussy” – Olivia Block [Chicago, IL]
8.) “Escargot” – Adel Souto [New York, NY]
9.) “In the Morning” – Neil Young Cloaca [Turners Falls, MA]
10.) “Friday Night in a Catholic Home” – Todd Deal [Worcester, MA]
11.) “10 Amp Waves” – Jubal Brown [Toronto, ON]
12.) “I Killed Another Day” – Heidi Alasuvanto [Oulu, Finland]
13.) “In Through the Out Door & Another Whore” – Robert Beatty [Lexington, KY]

JASON LESCALLEET is an exciting tape-music artist. He’s been a member of Due Process, performed and recorded with Keith Rowe, Joe Colley, Jason Kahn, John Hudak, Bhob Rainey and Greg Kelley (both separately and as Nmperign), and most recently Graham Lambkin in their Breadwinner project which has yielded unprecedented and glorious results in the electroacoustic music of today. LESCALLEET lives and works in the state of Maine

LESCALLEET‘s sound world occupies a space between noise, contemporary composition, and minimal electronics. Using decidedly primitive tactics and equipment (e.g. antiquated reel-to-reel recorders, damaged tape, etc.), his work focuses on extreme frequencies and microscopic audio detail.
