Oscillations, Kyle Harvey tomorrow…

Category: Blog — @ 6:57 pm April 23, 2008

Here’s an early heads-up about an event tomorrow at PS Collective. It’s a screening of the short film Oscillations by Evan Blakley featuring music by Kyle Harvey. I saw a screening of the film at the Omaha Film Festival a month or so ago as part of the festival’s “short film block,” the quality of which was, well, gratingly bad — except for Oscillations, which was something of a mind-fuck. Don’t ask me what the movie’s about, I don’t know. It’s essentially a smear of iconic visuals and sharp, nested images that echo with isolation and unease. It’s weird in a David Lynch sort of way, but without Lynch’s dark irony. In that context, it probably has more in common with the work of another David — David Fincher. There’s no dialogue, just music and atmospheric tonescapes. Not surprisingly, Oscillations didn’t take home any honors at OFF, but that’s not stopping Blakley from entering the film into other festivals around the country. The PS Collective screening and concert is a fund-raiser to gather money to pay for entry fees and other associated costs. Harvey will start off the evening playing a set, then the film, then if you’re not already creeped out enough, there’s a performance by FATHR^, a project headed by visionary noise/performance artist Dustin Bushon. It all starts at 8 p.m. and will probably be over in time to walk to The Waiting Room to catch Neva Dinova. Recommended donation is $10.
