Evan Calder Williams: "Violent X" with Taku Unami
The US Premiere of Evan Calder Williams' film Violent X features a live voice and synth improvisation by Tokyo-based musician Taku Unami with Williams. This performance joins its work of pulp and radical history to early instances of cinema narration and accompaniment and conjures in sound, words, and halting frames the high-speed chases and low-grade rip-offs that marked an era's subterranean thought.
In a second set Unami collaborates with philosopher Eugene Thacker and scientist Jarrod Fowler in a musical and non-musical improvisation. Cryptic, empty, and uncanny concepts and objects will be performed, evoking biological horror, cosmic pessimism, and entomological science fiction.
