Keith Evans with Rae Diamond

In dehydration melts is a collaborative water augury featuring the paracinema of Keith Evans and the vocal dilations of Rae Diamond’s Long Tone Choir. Drawing attention to our interconnection with Earth patterns and energies, In dehydration melts is a performance and an object, an instrument of equivocal data displaying sounds and liminal images of the transition zone between experience and meaning. Bodies, gestures, field notes, screens, walls, and the aggregate equipment are elements in a schematic and an ephemeral architecture that is evocative of the elastic and transformational forces unfolding an awareness of time. This expansive new work of compressed artifacts and obsolescences will congregate in the heat around the phoneme + phone + phonograph + phonological as utterances idiosyncratically decay through the apparatus contributing to an animate cinema system performed in our minds and in our presence.

Shapeshifters Cinema is a monthly expanded cinema series featuring experimental filmmakers and video artists presenting moving image work live with accompaniment from sound artists, musicians and artists from other creative disciplines. Shapeshifters takes place the second Sunday of every month, from 8 to 9pm (unless otherwise noted) at Temescal Art Center in North Oakland. Doors open at 7:30pm. Admission is free, but donations are greatly appreciated.
