Fotofono program screening

Fotofono is a program dedicated to intermedia exploration and electro-acoustic improvisation. Established by artist Gill Arno in 2004 in an old factory building in Brooklyn, NY, it has initially functioned as a rehearsal space for his performance project mpld, and then as an incubator for several collaborative projects like ea‘s ‘Balancing act with controlled dynamics’ (Winds Measure recordings, 2006), Unframed Recordings’ ’10.e’ series (2006 and on), Ting Ting Jahe‘s ’18 (16)’ (Winds Measure recordings, 2007) among others. It later became also the home and headquarters of experimental label Unframed Recordings.

The fest includes concerts, sound installations and video screenings by many of our past collaborators and friends, and a few more recent acquaintances. It is a program in progress, so a few acts will be added soon… stay tuned for any upcoming updates.

After this last blast, Fotofono will be over. Viva Fotofono, and its inter-media / inter-lingual / inter-age / inter-everything crowd of artists :)
