Outer Ear Festival of Sound 2004 | Chicago Reader

Outer Ear Festival of Sound 2004

Experimental Sound Studio's fifth annual program includes a retrospective devoted to Chicago filmmaker Paula Froehle, whose “densely layered films about memory and photographic imagery,” writes Fred Camper, “question how we can distinguish fact from feeling and how much we can know from a picture.” This selection includes Underground Women (2001), which “translates Froehle's concerns to a more narrative realm, as a photo of a woman who died in a laundromat links the photographer to the woman's landlady,” as well as Turns to Dust (2003), Fever (1999), and excerpts from the recent feature Threads. Also on the program: Michael Vorrfeld's Leuchtstoff (2003) and Phill Niblock's The Magic Sun (1966), starring Sun Ra and His Solar Arkestra.
