“Danny Denial seems determined to singlehandedly reinvent the punk film.” – Afropunk.com
Danny Denial’s ‘CONDiTiONER’ is a masterful short film. It’s full of dazzling imagery, complex intimate moments, superb performances, and a sci fi subtext. In the movie we follow Baz, a beautiful nonbinary artist struggling to navigate between multiple realities; both surreal and institutionalized. Shot by Leo Ramos and Eric Luck. It’s a tour de force. Now you take that and put it through blazinspace’s projector machines; we are in for a treat!
The New LIVE! Soundtrack will be performed by Nic Masangkay & Occlusions!
Nic Masangkay is a cultural worker in music, poetry, multimedia, and SW. They are a Filipinx, sick and disabled, queer and trans survivor currently based in Occupied Duwamish Territory (Seattle). More at www.nicmasangkay.com.
Occlusions is the alt-R&B project of vocalist Leigh Thomas (they/them) and producer Alex Gorischek (he/him). The duo draws influences from the likes of FKA twigs, Kelela, Gold Panda, Andy Stott, POLIÇA, and others. Their name evokes teeth locking together, computer-rendered shadows, and cyclone formation — ideas that show up in the process of their work.
“Occlusions blends shimmering synths with haunting vocals to create left-of-center soundscapes that wrap you in otherworldly warmth.” — Atwood Magazine
Blazinspace is the alter-ego of visual artist John Theroux. They use a combination of projection mapping tricks to transform space into an immersive experience. They have quite the experience with these movie remixes – Check out @The Best You’ve Ever Seen to see some of their Live Movie Remixes.
