A Celebration of Artistic Collaboration

We're excited to announce that the second installment of A/VEC (Audio/Visual Experiential Collaboration Project) will take place on Thursday, July 7th at Marmoset's studios (2105 SE 7th Ave. Portland, OR 97214). This debut film screening, set to a live soundtrack, will begin at 7:00 PM, with doors opening at 6:30 PM. The performance will be followed by a Q&A with the artists and accompanied by light refreshments. 

Shhh... Please help us keep this part a secret – this installment of A/VEC will feature a film by Zak Davis of Juliet Zulu along with a live soundtrack performance by 1939 Ensemble

As this is an invitation-only event, seats will be extremely limited. We'd love to see you there, so please make sure to RSVP as soon as you can. 

Note, the featured film is rated "R" and is not appropriate for children. 


The Story Behind A/VEC

The A/VEC series is inspired by a curiosity to explore what a filmmaker and a musician can dream-up, create and execute when paired together, with a limited amount of time, direction and with mutual anonymity – including absolutely no communication between the two parties. Once selected for the project, the filmmaker is given one month to create and produce a short film, which is then discreetly delivered (via Marmoset) to a musician/band, who then has 10 days to write, arrange and produce a complete live soundtrack.

Each step of the process challenges the participants to push creative boundaries and think beyond what is expected. In short, they're empowered to throw comfort and control to the wind. The result is a one-time, intimate performance all happening live in front of an audience of friends, family and the greater creative community.
