Variable Area: Hearing and Seeing Sound, 1966–78

Curated by film scholar Michelle Puetz, this program presents films that investigate the visual and aural possibilities of 16mm optical audio, as sounds perform images and images become sonic scores. Works by Peter Kubelka, Chris Langdon, Robert Russett, Paul Sharits, Barry Spinello, and a live accompaniment by musicians Art Lange, Guillermo Gregorio, and Brian Labycz to Richard Lerman's Sections for Screen Performers and Audience (1974).
