Sight & Sound: Flingco Sound System
2001-9, Multiple Artists, Austria/USA, 90 min.
Since its 2007 launch, Chicago’s Flingco Sound System has played host to a slate of musicians who work collaboratively with visual artists to create mesmerizing videos and darkly textured live performances. This evening features performances by the Chicago trio Haptic (Steven Hess, Joseph Clayton Mills, and Adam Sonderberg) with real-time video artist Lisa Slodki; Chicago act Interbellum (Brendan Burke) with multi-media artist Annie Feldmeier Adams; and a short video by SAIC alum Clayton Flynn and the Richmond, VA, trio Cristal (Jimmy Anthony, Greg Darden and Bobby Donne), titled AVICI (2008). Multiple formats. (Amy Beste)
