Anthology's Audio Vérité series presents Aki Onda's audio visual spectacular, Cinemage, with live performances by Loren Connors and Alan Licht. With the New York premiere of two new Cinemage pieces: A Thousand Light and Nights and A Hidden Place for Birds.
Anthology's Audio Vérité series presents multi-media artist Aki Onda's NY premiere of two new audio-visual pieces from his Cinemage project. Cinemage is Onda's audio-visual project in which performances are composed of slide projections of still photographs and guitar improvisation. Cinemage means images for cinema, or homage for cinema. The visual images in Cinemage are snapshots taken from Onda's daily life. By documenting fragments of his personal life, something is revealed in their accumulation--the particulars within lose significance. What emerges is the architecture, and the essence, of memory. Loren Conners and Alan Licht will play guitar with Onda's visual images.
Audio Vérité is a series devoted to sonic cinema, imageless narratives and rarely-if-ever heard recordings. Each program will highlight the aural works of artists who are perhaps more recognized as film/video-makers. We will also periodically dip into our own collection of old tapes to unveil a well-documented history of lectures, broadcasts, debates, performances and audio ephemera.
