Los Angeles Filmforum at the Broad Art Center

Single Wing Turquoise Bird Light Show

January 25, 2012, 8:30 pm   » 

Los Angeles Filmforum and the UCLA Design Media Arts Department present Single Wing Turquoise Bird in performance with musicians Miroslav Tadic and Friends in two evenings of real-time projection and live music on January 25 and 26, at 8:30 pm, in the EDA of the Broad Arts Center, UCLA. Single Wing Turquoise Bird was the most significant light show in Los Angeles from 1967 to 1975, a "collective improvisation performance group" that used film, slide, and liquid projections to marry the artistic possibilities of music, painting, and moving images. SWTB first played behind bands such as Cream, The Velvet Underground, Sly and the Family Stone, Pink Floyd, The Who and The Grateful Dead. In addition to working in large rock concert venues, the group conducted performances in more intimate spaces. During the past three years Single Wing Turquoise Bird has re-formed to rehearse, perform, and record new work. Several of the original group, Larry Janss, David Lebrun, Peter Mays, Jeffrey Perkins, and Michael Scroggins are joined by new members Amy Halpern, Shayne Hood, and Mike Pfau. Their performances are as dynamic and transcendent as ever!
