Shades of Meaning

Rental Format(s): 16mm film

SHADES OF MEANING is a short, poetic meditation on music and meaning in cinema. "Aurally iconographic" music fragments have been decomposed, then re-composed into loops and patterns, and combined with eclectically chosen imagery shot mostly in the western United States. The result is both a reflection of the artist's sensibilities and a commentary on commercial media values.

At once a celebration of visual beauty and a semiological investigation into how musical codes and imagery combine to create meaning, SHADES OF MEANING has been called paradoxical, mystical and elegant, pregnant with multiple meanings and a powerful tool for reflection.

Awards: SF Int'l Film Festival; Black Maria Film and Video Festival.
