The VICTORIA TIMES COLONIST
Poets, Technicians In Gallery Shows
Vancouver's experimental Intermedia group will be in victoria this week for three different shows at the Gallery.
All shows begin at 8 p.m.
Monday's program will be called Films by artists and will include, among others, Al Rizutis' Circus Show Fire, described as an Ektachrome dream of a child's circus experience; David Rimmer's Migration, called a rhythm transformation; Bill Fix's Phase Two, which uses techniques similar to those employed in the psychedelic sequences of 2001.
THREE FILM MAKERS
Three film makers will be at the showing to exchange ideas with the audience.
Tuesday night, four poets will work along with two sound technicians to give an added dimension to the poetry.
The four — Judy Copithorne, Gerry Gilbert Maxine Gadd and Ed Varney, all of Vancouver, will speak while Dennis Vance and David Rimmer add tracks with sounds they make on the spot.
Jazz will move to the fore Wednesday night when Vancouver's Al Niel joins Greg Simpson in a new kind of concert using electronic tapes, chance devices, light and collage from of their own invention which utilizes such means as radio, recorder, tapes and vocal readings.
It will be the first Victoria appearance for the group which was formed two years ago and is financed by Canada Council grants.
The group has already performed at the Vancouver Art Gallery, Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia.
