As part of an exhibition of the films of Beatrice Gibson, Manuel Zurria, flutes, and Mark Knoop, piano present music by Laurence Crane and Pauline Oliveros (external link); some sharing similar aesthetic and structural characteristics with Gibson’s output and also with the work of Gertrude Stein, on whose screenplay Gibson bases ‘Deux Soeurs Qui Ne Sont Pas Soeurs’. Exploring aspects of portraiture, repetition and duplication — exact and inexact — the music seems in many ways closely aligned to the notion of ‘the copy’ that fascinates Gibson.
