LOST NOTES FROM HOME – Shot in New York over the course of 5 years, superimposing video and 16mm filmed vignettes culled from the theater of the street. Live improvised music challenges and teases the visuals so that the two are in spirited conversation. Inspired by the tradition of street photography, this piece allows small quotidian moments to flourish. Mark Street is a NY-based filmmaker whose work has appeared at the Tribeca (5 times), Sundance, Rotterdam, New York, London, San Francisco, New York Underground, Sarajevo, Viennale, Ourense (Spain), Mill Valley, South by Southwest, and other film festivals. Bradford Reed is an American multi-instrumentalist, experimental luthier, and member of avant-garde band King Missile III. Nikki D’Agostino is widely recognised as one of Australia’s most entertaining female Accordionists. Keeping the rare art alive and educating souls with the world sounds of the Piano Accordion.
