Light Is Calling
by Bill Morrison with music by Michael Gordon, 2004
35mm 8minute film
Filmmaker Bill Morrison optically printed and re-edited a scene from a deteriorating print of James Young’s “The Bells” (1926) to Michael Gordon’s 7 minute composition. A meditation on the nature of random collisions.
Bill is also a member of Ridge Theater, Ridge productions are epic visual and aural works that typically position performers within film and video projections, redefining traditional theatrical boundaries. Dramatic staging by acclaimed director Bob McGrath and haunting film work and projections by the filmmaker Bill Morrison (“Decasia”) and the visual artist Laurie Olinder are hallmarks of the Ridge style.
