Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present 

When: Sun., June 5, 6 p.m. 2016
Phone: 313-209-5205
Price: $10
This is the second-ever screening go a documentary film on one of the most influential musician/ artists of the last century, Tony Conrad (1940-2016). Conrad made a film in the 1960s that caused the audience to hallucinate wildly using nothing more than oscillating splices of black and blank leader tape. The dude also names the Velvet Underground; collaborated with Faust in the early 1970s; made some painting that are meant to change color over decades; and was a collaborator with John Cale, Marian Zazeela, and La Monte Young in the original minimalist drone crew. Above all, he was a truly mischievous weirdo uninterested in fame or fortune.
