James Kirkpatrick Circuit-Bends Kid’s Toys

Published by the Banff Centre April 2016.  James Kirkpatrick was a rapper and a DJ before he started picking up toys and circuit-bending them to make the noises he wanted. The result is an interesting cacophony of sounds that’s fun to listen to and to play with.

Greg Curnoe’s “Connexions”

Connexions (1970) – filmed in 16mm, colour, sound, 15 minutes

In “Connexions” Greg Curnoe describes all of the intricate connections in his life over moving images of London’s downtown, neighbourhoods and bars. You also see studio images of Jack Chambers painting his famous “401” painting. Connexions becomes a diary – narrative – biographical – autobiographical home movie of regionalism – provincialism.
