Keith Evans and Dylan Bolles [www.keithevans.org]
are collaborating to create Breath Transit and the Peal of Night, a piece for live cinema and shakuhachi.
Keith is a performative visual artist and musician who creates translation systems, fascination devices, and extra-cinematic experiences that reveal the phenomenon and the idea of cinema as a technological system. Keith hails from the multimedia collective Silt, innovators in multiple film projections, shadow interferences, kinetic sculptural elements, and resonant sound.
Dylan is a composer, performance artist and multi-instrumentalist who makes sound/theatre works, often involving the design and construction of new musical instruments. He is currently a Research Assistant in the UC Davis Humanities Institute developing both a formal and cultural translation of p’ansori, a Korean oral narrative form rooted in ancient Shamanist rituals.
