New Jersey International Film Festival Screening

Musical Angels – Saul Pincus (Toronto, Canada)
A heartbroken violin maker tests the healing power of music. 2024; 9 min.

LIVE FEED – Daniel Maldonado (New York, New York)
Live Feed is an interpretative short that playfully examines the role of intermedia ( as an “in-betweeness) and the work of award winning electro acoustic composer, Jeff Morris. Using the form of a tangled live performance that includes interviews, a motion controlled piano algorithm, a Synaesthesia painter and found object percussionist, new musical voices are shaped. The “four way triangle” that emerges opens up questions about creativity and the arts in the 21st century. 2023; 13 min.

Cowgirls and Synthesizers – Joe Wallace (Springfield, Illinois)
UK hit-maker and Eurovison songwriter Ricardo Autobahn follows the synthesizer pop duo Hyperbubble, described by Alternative Press as “the sonic equivalent of a truckload of Twizzlers”, as they drive to Nashville to record a country and western album using only synthesizers, drum machines, and theremin. Along the way, Hyperbubble members Jess and Jeff meet cartoon cult heroes Samantha Newark of Jem and the Holograms and Manda Rin of Bis/Powerpuff Girls fame, Theremin diva Dorit Chrysler, music fashion guru Manuel Cuevas, cosmic cowboy Garett T Capps, air-drumming filmmaker Ari Gold, Do-It-Yourself vinyl pioneers Shoes, synth-pop sweeties Freezepop, Lederhosen Lucil, Helen Love, and Our Daughters Wedding, and somehow end up winners in Dolly Parton’s Netflix song contest. Cowgirls and Synthesizers is a fast, fun, fanzine telling the true story of Hyperbubble’s over 20-year career, splattered with color, animation, and comedy. 2023; 80 min.
