Spatter Patterns 

Wednesday, Mar 26 2014

The Synesthesia Film Festival is a new monthly screening night with a networking vibe. The focus is on short films, and the group aims to "bring an eclectic mix of media and filmmakers together to mingle, share ideas, and collaborate on future projects." There is a meet-and-greet before the screening, a Q&A with chosen filmmakers after the show, and a casual after-party where the crew will tally up the votes for the Audience Choice Award. As for the films, it's definitely an eclectic mix. Biting Elbows' music video Bad Motherfucker is violent, jarring, and bloody. Side Effected features a hapless young fellow pitching a bad idea to a grumpy, older man in a boardroom, with a twist ending worthy of The Twilight Zone. There are some award-winning shorts scattered among the lineup as well. Cockatoo and Cicada Princess made the Vimeo staff picks list, and Vacuity won a "seeds" award from Celtx in 2012.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
