12/14 @ 8:00pm The Cinefamily proudly presents Henry Jacobs' "The Fine Art Of Goofing Off" And Other Wide Weirdness! Co-presented by Dublab and Arthur Magazine!
hat happens late at night when the television fuzz melts together with your subconscious mind? In today’s climate, ultimate brain-tickling experimental television programs are almost non-existant -- but in the early ‘70s, a few episodes of true magic was made real. In 1972, sound artist Henry Jacobs (often considered the originator of modern surround sound due to his "Vortex: Experiments in Sound and Light" conceptual concerts) got together with producer Chris Koch and visual artist Bob McClay to create a series of half-hour shows for San Francisco public television station KQED. This show, entitled "The Fine Art of Goofing Off", is an ultimate revelation -- like Sesame Street’s psychedelic, philosophical cousin who lives on the top floor of a tenement on the weird side of the road. Tonight, we’ll be showing Henry’s favorite moments from Goofing Off, along with audio snippets from Vortex, other amazing excerpts of Henry’s short films, a live tape loop performance, and probably even some left-handed ping-pong action! We’ll even have Henry on the line for a live remote Q&A from his wild outpost on the Northern California coast, plus a live performance by Nanny Cantaloupe and Joseph Hammer (with visuals by Animal Charm!)
