Playing with The Tyde for the "Darren 4" record release:




Expanded Cinema is an attempt to broaden our filmic minds, moving beyond subjective experiences and into the realm of objective experiments. From the pulsing rhythms of Bruce Conner to the ethereal light of Jordan Belson and the wheeling mandalas of the Whitney Brothers, we’ve taken our favorites from the visually dazzling tradition of psychedelic cinema out of the galleries and onto a big screen under the Hollywood stars. In the company of Frank Lloyd Wright’s majestic Hollyhock House, we invite you to join us under open skies with live music from Dave Scher and great set of short films on this historic hilltop with panoramic views of the city. Don't miss the chance to see these rarely screened gems. It's an evening of the greatest experimental and exploratory films of the era, all on gorgeous 16mm.
