Yuliya Lanina
Not a Sad Tale
multi-media one woman performance 
Original music by Vladimir Rannev
20 minutes
Not a Sad Tale is a story of creation gone awry. Its creator – simultaneously the author and the character – is visual artist Yuliya Lanina. Known for her animations and mechanical sculptures, this is the first time Lanina steps inside one of her creations, literally and figuratively, to reveal a fantastical micro-realm in the process of being made. The animation and Lanina’s live performance are synchronized with original music by the award-winning Russian avant-garde composer, Vladimir Rannev. The electroacoustic track mixes fixed media with sounds that the performer manipulates in real time entirely with her breathing. The presentation blurs the line between on-stage reality and its sublimation on screen, as the artist shapes her art “in her own image”, endowing it with all her strengths and her flaws. This project was made possible with the support of a residency at Headlands Center for the Arts and Fusebox Festival. Trailer could be watched here.

Blake Marques Carrington (a.k.a. Russian Ark Sakura)
A Weak Force That Binds
audiovisual performance
20 minutes
single-channel projection + stereo sound
“A Weak Force That Binds” is the third full-length album from multidisciplinary artist Blake Marques Carrington a.k.a. Russian Ark Sakura.  Like previous releases, the album and performance use the artist’s “CScan” sound engine, created in the Max/MSP/Jitter software environment.  Architectural plans of a variety of structures, both religious and secular, are scanned in real-time to generate rhythmic sound.  By controlling multiple scanning groups at once, a myriad of polyrhythmic, fugue-like effects can be achieved.  Visually the plan is revealed with each pass of the virtual scan, and interacts graphically with appropriated clips from Antonioni’s 1964 film “Red Desert” and Teshigahara’s 1966 film “The Face of Another”. Video for track titled "Scan Santo Stefano (A 27-Sided Argument)" can be seen here.
