Montague Phantom Brain Exchange #1
Mt. Emult
also known to the world as Matthew Newman-Long, has been making animated and experimental short films for quite some years now. He teaches video at GCC and lives in Holyoke, the Milwaukee of Western Mass. For this event, he intends to share a clutch of cinematic curiosities. Here's what he says about them: " Once again the destruction of a piece of media is the creation of a piece of media. I stole two shots, a monkey and a monkey with a man. My mother was beautiful when she was ice-skating. Jumpy mistakes and sexual innuendos. Exploring the many ways to create new imagery by destroying old imagery, in both the analog and digital world. I don't believe the viewer needs to know why this man acts the way he does, as I don't know why you act the way you do." <http://www.youtube.com/MountEmult>

Ducktails is blissed-out bedroom-studio stoner jams of a mister Matt Mondanile. Just off the plane from a European tour exporting his imaginary tropical soundscapes, the parrot on his shoulder will be speaking perfect Flemish. <http://www.myspace.com/ducktailss>

There will also lecture by D.B. Russell entitled, "Ekphrasis and ekstasis: prospects for inscribing the multiple in contemporary Massachusetts landscapes" - which means handouts, powerpoint slides, maybe even a strobe light! In ten minutes, you brain's ass might get kicked. Mr. Russell is also more widely known for his affiliations with the Suchfun.net empire and for his performances in such acts as The Laudible Pus & Frothy Shakes. He is an Adjunct Lecturer in Esthetics and Moral Philosophy, Open Field Initiative, Greenfield, MA. <http://www.flickr.com/photos/peretzpup/>
