WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The new project by Chocolate Factory Artistic Director Brian Rogers and collaborators Madeline Best, Chloe Z. Brown, Maggie Dick, Brad Kisicki, Sheila Lewandowski & Yoko Myoi. A real time video performance about nostalgia for relationships that never took place, events which never happened; the soundtrack to a film which was never made, but which everyone remembers; exploiting the misappropriation of "real" sounds and images to confound, distort, remake and ultimately erase the truth. Inspired by William Eggleston's video pieces, especially Stranded in Canton, and the processed ambient music of Christian Fennesz and Stars of the Lid - in which the source material and instrumentation used to create the music is processed and recontextualized to the point of near impenetrability - music which feels as if it comes from nothing and is about nothing but around which a certain undeniable poignancy settles like fog.
