Music and Motion!

FiLmprov, an ever-evolving experiment in the union of film, musical improvisation, and beyond, returns with great pleasure to present the equation FILM + improvisation = FiLmprov at the Armory Café on Thursday, November 2, 2017


Kate Matson, filmmaker, creates a theatre of visual improvisation originating on Super 8 film by animating objects that have significance for her sculpturally, spiritually, and/or politically.

Mark Harvey, music director, assembles the collective and individual compositional talents of seasoned musical improvisers to interact with the choreography of these found and simple objects.

Impish imagery, a dash of dissonance, a handful of harmony, a soupçon of humor and voilà: FiLmprov!

FILM + improvisation = FiLmprov

featuring film by animator/artist Kate Matson

Live soundtrack and musical improvisation by the FiLmprov Ensemble:

Rob Bethel, cello

Peter Bloom, Phil Scarff, Dan Zupan, woodwinds

Mark Harvey, music director, trumpet

Bill Lowe, trombone

Harry Wellott, drums
