DAVIS/CHURCHILL + VARGA + 99 HOOKER+

On Saturday October 2nd, ATA Gallery’s Other Cinema presents FLUTTER AND WOWthe second installment of our Optronica couplet, showcasing Live A/V acts that create sound-image hybrids in real time! Headlining is the alchemical magick of projection-artist John Davis and process-guitarist Josh Churchill, in a 20-minute finale called Night Country.

All the way from New York City is the video performance artistry of 99 Hooker,  premiering a new COVID-made piece, Viva Sparks.

Oakland’s own Lori Varga is also in-person with a debut—her double-S8/Live Vocal recitation, Your Flesh Is My Flesh.

In The Ultra Tapes, Mission maestro David Cox channels the spirit of Alan Turing, the UK inventor of the Enigma Machine, a device used to decode Nazi messages during WWII, which was recently found on the Baltic seabed. Ben Wood appears as the celebrated Turing!

AND: Acting as prelude and interstices between the live sets are amazing experimental animations by Len Lye!

 DOORS OPEN AT 7:30PM FOR THE 8:00PM SHOW. ADMISSION IS $9

Proof of vaccinations and masks are required.
