Synopsis: A concert film featuring Chris Johnedis and Holland Andrews performing as I’d Rather Not Talk About It, at Creative Music Guild’s Improvisation Summit of Portland.
Presenting I’d Rather Not Talk About It, a concert film shot on two cameras to the side and back of the audience, on standard tripods. This is no frills. It is as spontaneous as the performance itself.
The stage is stark, with no colored lights or automated effects. The setting is in the vast warehouse gallery space in North Portland called Disjecta. Holland’s mesmerizing presence backed by Johnedis’ smoothly arithmetic drums travel through a series of crescendos and solos.
This video ran on Portland’s Open Signal television stations in repetition.
