“An Evening of Music Video Magic with Feist and Martin De Thurah”

April 9 • Contemporary Arts Center

By Mike Breen · April 2nd, 2012 · Sound Advice
Consider this one some sound and vision advice. Canadian singer/songwriter (and member of the Broken Social Scene collective) Leslie Feist (better known as simply Feist) is coming to the Contemporary Arts Center Monday, but not to sing. Part of the complimentary programming related to the current music video exhibit Spectacle, Feist will join filmmaker Martin De Thurah to discuss the creative process behind the highly cinematic and artful “The Bad in Each Other” music video for the single taken from Feist’s Metals album.

De Thurah has helmed some other stunning videos, including clips for Editors, Royksopp, Futureheads and Fever Ray. On April 1, Feist won “Artist of the Year” at Canada’s version of the Grammys, the Juno Awards.

The event will feature a screening of the luxurious short film and a discussion, as well as (according to the press release) some special “surprises” (so perhaps, just maybe, Feist will sing?). The event runs 7-9 p.m. and admission is $20 ($15 for CAC members).

Also a part of the Spectacle programming is the April 27 CAC screening of Vincent Morisset’s black-and-white film, Inni, featuring Icelandic Post Rock heroes Sigur Ros in concert. Variety’s Justin Chang called the movie “as pure an experience of the cinema as I've had.” The 6:30 p.m. screening will be followed by a discussion about the film. Admission is free to CAC members and non-members who purchase museum admission that evening.
