Upcoming Film on Pianist Matt Shipp: Funding Needed, How You Can Help
Pianist Matt Shipp, as many of you know, is one of the important voices on the improvisational scene today. Visual artist Barbara Januszkiewicz is in the midst of making a film on Matt and his music. In her words, "There is no conversation. It is all sound, movement, experienced in real time, the composer coming to the piano and working out a musical dialogue." It will be all about communication through Matt's music and Barbara's visual camera angles, an art of the melding of two creative mediums in a breakthrough expressive tandem.
But they need your help. Funding will make or break the project and they are seeking donations from folks out there. Anything you might be able to give will bring the project closer to reality. For more information and to find out how to donate go to http://www.thecomposer.info/thecomposer/
