Jamie Green is an improvisatory music maker from Los Angeles. Incorporating amplified violin, alto saxophone, tar (drum) and electronics, his rigorously naivist sound unfurls by tapping into hints of a Hindustani classical modality and a tendency toward ephemeral geometrical structures, interlocking melodic and rhythmic forms which tend to appear and recede just as quickly, actions not unlike ripples of folding water. Similar techniques are applied in his use of rhythmic and repetitive vocables, linked to his work as a published poet, which induce a heightened sensation of word-shapes while remaining primarily abstract-musical.
Pauline Lay is a violinist, solo artist, improviser and a long-standing music events curator/organizer based out of Los Angeles. She began performing solo pieces with acoustic and electronic instruments in 2014. Her latest recording “Alloy / Pulp” was released by Japanese tape label Heavy Mess. She also frequently collaborates with fellow LA musicians in a multitude of contexts, from duets to her piece “5×5”, a composition for 25 synthesizers. She has toured extensively in the U.S.

ABOUT THE SHOW:
The idea for BFF was conceived 5 years ago when I had a series of dreams that took place in a slightly better version of Seattle. Slightly more interesting problems, slightly less suffering. I became obsessed with this angle of sci fi that is not utopian or dystopian, just, like, a tiny bit better. I also realized how powerful the genre of sci fi is in our culture, even people who don’t like comic books or reading fiction or super hero movies are influenced by the ideas of what is possible. And in film, those ideas are mostly about the possible ways humans can kill each other. Which is really boring to me. For example I would have enjoyed the movie Star Wars more if it were 2 hours of Luke’s mom walking around the house. What is her idea of beauty, what’s the most important story passed down from her ancestors? What songs does she sing in the shower, which herbs does she use for medicine? That is an extreme example, I realize that many people love that movie for what it is. But I’m saying I want to see sci fi movies about possible futures of art, medicine, how we heal each other, of how our day to day experiences feel. I also believe the practice of playfully exploring different ideas of what we want to happen to this world is really powerful, and it’s necessary for people involved in social justice work, service work, and activism to keep from burning out. So in some ways this is a film project about the future of medicine that is also meant to be medicine for my community and my friends.
