Electro-Pythagoras is a meditation on Martin Bartlett, a lesser-known composer who studied with both Terry Riley and Pandit Pran Nath. Using footage and papers from Bartlett’s archive—Bartlett died of AIDS in 1993—Luke Fowler’s film plays with sound and image to create a dreamlike portrait of Bartlett’s final years. This special preview screening will be followed by a live performance of sound artist Ernst Karel performing Glyphs,a piece based on tapes from Bartlett’s archive.
