Transfigured Time: A Westobou Event
Thursday September 29, 2011
The Sacred Heart Cultural Center, in partnership with Semi-Precious Productions, will present the world premiere of Transfigured Time: Music for the Films of Maya Deren Composed and Performed by Mac McCaughan as part of the 2011 Westobou Festival.
A photographer, poet, writer and social critic, Maya Deren is best known for her avant garde filmmaking. Deren, who died in 1961, explored themes of rejection, fame, violence and the creative process in a series on non-linear film experiments shot in the 1940s and ‘50s. Her friends and contemporaries included Marcel Duchamp, Anais Nin and John Cage.
Best known as a member of the bands Superchunk and Portastatic, Mac McCaughan is also co-founder of Merge Records. Over the course of more than 20 years, Merge has released albums by McCaughan’s own bands, as well as groundbreaking albums by Arcade Fire, Spoon, She & Him and Magnetic Fields.
