AAVE welcomes Brooklyn-based experimental filmmaker Bruce McClure, a moving-image magician, as the main guest of the festival. McClure uses specially-modified 16mm projectors, film loops, transformers, and guitar effects pedals in his astonishing performances. McClure manipulates the projectors, light, and sound creating a flickering environment filled with a minimal pulsating beat, which is as much about the sound as the “image”.

Strung to harmonize on a another harp my second show during the festival may be an opportunity for some to find comfort in the knowledge that hate on first seeing may come to love on second earshot. Disparities between the ear and the eye and the analogous parts of projection machinery will be affirmed and celebrated. Both of these performances will be conditioned by a pair of movie projectors threaded with banded loops. Evidenced as near nothings the film circuits will be reckoned with alone superimposed on the screen or projected in tandem from the same machine. Divisions laid out in two dimensions unified as a loop will be arrayed extemporaneously in the dimensions of chambered space for subjective consideration and engagement.
