Marfa Dialogues


26 February 2005

In the spirit of the Music on Film series, recently signed Capitol Records-artists SOUNDteam bring their bullwhips and boas to Marfa for film screenings and a live show.

“All I can say is that the songs are rhythmic, propulsive, and dynamic. The band uses their electric guitars and synthesizers to add texture, often, treating them with arcane tape echoes so that they chime and swirl together until you can’t tell which is which. But the electric piano, bass and drums are played with downright ferocity.” — Lan Ho, Rolling Stone, January 2005

Imaginary Landscapes
Directed by Gabriella Cardazzo
A documentary detailing Brian Eno’s process in the studio. A remarkable snapshot of a pioneer.

Tom Dowd and the Language of Music
Directed by Mark Moorman
A fascinating documentary about Tom Dowd. His early scientific work with the Atomic Commission led to the atomic bombs of WWII (he was age 20). After this, he became staff engineer at Atlantic Records, recording such legends as Ray Charles, Thelonius Monk, John Coltrane, Booker T & the MG’s, Cream, The Allman Brothers and many others. He is quite possibly the foremost studio innovator of recent times, inventing the 8track tape machine, mixing board faders, and isolation of studio instruments
