Los Angeles Filmforum at MOCA presents Eve Luckring: With What Tongue
Los Angeles Filmforum at MOCA presents Eve Luckring: With What Tongue
213/621-1745 or education@moca.org
7pm

This multi-media event combines live music with the world premiere of Eve Luckring’s Junicho Video-Renku Book, a series of videos based on a 17th century Japanese form of poetry. In this evening of sensory shape-shifting, image becomes language; language becomes sound; and sound becomes image. The program includes John Cage’s 62 Mesostics re Merce Cunningham performed by vocalist Carmina Escobar, Morton Feldman’s Voices and Cello, performed by Aniela Perry, Sharon Kim, and Argenta Walther, and Reading/Sound by Madison Brookshire. Each compositional strategy encourages an active attentiveness, and together the pieces create a richly layered time-based collage.

$12 general admission, $7 students with valid ID
