Cut-ups, analog tape loops, celluloid and fire. W.S. Burroughs and Kurt Kren. Performance Art and painting on film. These are all part of the experimental films of Marian Wallace. In the ’70s, before today’s global Noise-Music bands and festivals, a few avant-garde artists and groups began using the cut-up, sampling, subliminals, noise, musique concrète, films and video to provide immersive Black Humor concert experiences, as documented in RE/Search’s Industrial Culture Handbook. Marian Wallace’s “Artists of the Industrial Scene” features interviews with Mark Pauline (SRL), Johanna Went (Performance Artist), Genesis P-Orridge (Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV), Jerry Casale (DEVO) and other ground-breaking musicians and artists. This short-feature will be screening with other short experimental films from then and now.

Post-film Q&A with Marian Wallace and V. Vale (RE/Search Publications). Presented by Olympia Zine Fest.
