Roger Miller talks about his Text of Light Shows

movies: SHOWS & SCREENINGS

Roger Miller writes about theText of Light shows. From his article:

The intersection of Stan Brakhage's abstract film and our abstract music can produce different meaning to different viewers/listeners (we are not so much "soundtracking" for the film as co-existing with the film). In some respects, this has Rorschach Test qualities: What do YOU experience from this? The audience brings a lot to the meaning of the event.
