Jukebox Cinema: Mexicanos de Bronce w/ Director Q&A

46508339_478041496020719_1837008880308060160_n.jpg

Jukebox Cinema is proud to announce the latest film in our ongoing series, the Austin premiere of Mexicanos de Bronce - Documental on Friday, December 21st at Beerland, Texas. The film tells the story of prison inmates in Mexico who record rap music about their experiences behind bars and on the streets. The film's director Julio Fernandez will be in attendance and Jukebox Cinema curator Matt Conboy will conduct a Q&A after the film.

Film Synopsis:
In 2006, with 22 years of age and sentenced to 27 years in prison for the crime of qualified homicide, Rocky entered the East Men's Preventive Prison in Mexico City. A few months later, resenting the burden and the deep frustration caused by the condition of confinement, began the project MPC CREW (Ministers of Street Poetry) with the idea of forming a group in which rap was a different way of sharing experiences that are heard within a criminal. A year later they joined the Bullet and Hones project, and since then they worked together to make this a real literary workshop in which crime, poverty, death, drugs and violence were denounced in a different way for their protagonists.

Austin's 17th or 18th most beloved independent record label returns to the scene of past crimes against music with 12XU's annual war-on-christmas event at Beerland. Since the organizer's FINISHED hauling cans of food to some mysterious loading dock in South Austin, this year we're taking cash donations at the door for caritasofaustin.org, in an attempt to aid the city's homeless.

Performers include internationally famous masters of absurdity BORZOI, John Schooley's moderne-as-fuck ROCKET 808, ILINX (featuring MEMBERS OF BANDS) and round 2 of one of Beerland's all-time great grudge matches SICK VAN vs. SPIDER SABICH.

DJ's Katherine Strickland & Johnny Vomitnoise will make us all feel inferior with their wonderful musical selections throughout the evening.

Holodeck Records is proud to present our dear friend and Ghostly International artist Steve Hauschildt from Chicago on December 2nd at Beerland, Texas.

"He positions his music between the trendy and the avant-garde, the ordered and the disorganized, the poles of precise electronic rhythms and resonant drone choirs that sidestep beats altogether."
-Resident Advisor

"Steve Hauschildt’s grasp of synthesis reaches alchemical, intuitive levels of lushness in ‘Dissolvi’, keening towards a broadly appealing ambient-techno-pop sound without losing the enigmatic, abstract, deep space quality of previous efforts."
-Boomkat

The bill will include local artists Michael C. Sharp, Curved Light & Kro. Doors at 9, $5 cover. More details coming soon.

-Complex Distractions-

To celebrate the release of these two albums Sungod and Future Museums will play live at Beerland, Texas on Sunday, November 25th. The bill will include sets from Jake Schrock, Termagant and DJ Adult Themes. Doors at 9. $5 cover.

Marisa Anderson is a wanderer at heart, creatively as curious as she is proficient. On Cloud Corner, Anderson’s music is boundless. Rooted in American folk music, her pieces are inspired by 20th century classical and West African guitar techniques. The results are revelatory. Written and recorded in a period of political and personal upheaval, the album was created as a refuge, an ode to stillness in an era of ceaseless noise. Marisa Anderson’s Cloud Corner is an album of remarkably intimate beauty, tranquility in times of turmoil.

Anderson’s composing is indelibly tied to her process of recording. As her own engineer, Anderson is able to develop her pieces while recording, shifting from song to song as inspiration strikes. After at times months of ruminating on musical and conceptual ideas, she improvises hours of material which then is often whittled into the concise, richly textured compositions. As the pieces of Cloud Corner developed, a distinct mood began to settle over the album, with long reverb tails, cleaner tones, and lightly bouncing rhythms evoking air, wind, breath, and the sky. Themes continued evolving as she recorded, as Anderson began embellishing pieces with varied instrumentation, from the warble of her Wurtlitzer keyboard to the staccato plucks of the requinto jarocho.

Anderson is able to evoke vivid visuals through her music, and Cloud Corner draws on personal experience for those images. A great example is the sorrowful “Angel’s Rest,” a eulogy to one of Anderson’s favorite trails near her Portland home, which was devastated in 2017 by fire. “Sant Feliu de Guíxols” elicits the beauty of the coastal Spanish town. It is a quietly and consciously happy song triggered by a conversation with a fan who accused Anderson of only playing sad songs. Anderson uses a slide and incorporates microtonal elements on “Lament,” a song inspired by images of the Syrian refugee crisis. The palpable emotional weight of these pieces are all invariably tied to Anderson’s capacity to create such vivid imagery with her composition, timbre and tonal choices.

Marisa Anderson’s experience in a myriad playing styles and keen abilities as an improviser are perfect skills to satiate her appetite for new approaches to composing. The backbone for her music is her undeniable mastery of North American traditions of country, folk, and blues. Cloud Corner sees Anderson using those skills in new forms from the Classical canon such as the fugue and ostinato. Traversing further still, guitar phrases on tracks like “Slow Ascent” and “Surfacing” owe a debt to the Tuareg style of guitar playing. Anderson was influenced by artists she played or recorded with such as Mdou Moctar, Kildjate Moussa Albadé, and Ahmoudou Madassane. Inspiration was also drawn from unique stringed instruments Anderson utilized such as the requinto jarocho and charango, which helped flesh out the riff of “Lift.”

The solo guitar work of Marisa Anderson owes its familiar tones to her awareness of history and her mastering of her instrument, yet it is completely new. Marisa Anderson filters musical history through her own personal experiences, as a traveler in life and in music. A curious and gifted player, Anderson has spent over 35 years of playing forging her singular, instantly recognizable voice. Marisa Anderson’s Cloud Corner is hopeful in the face of any discord, a resplendent diverse sound sanctuary that shines, a mirror of the horizon it looks towards.
