I'm not at all certain could be mistaken but JT may
appear in Brakhage's GADFLIES, a film made in Super-8
in 1976, listed as available in this format from
Canyon Cinema.

Regarding REFLECTIONS..., the somewhat mysterious
book, BRAKHAGE, authored by one Dan Clark, includes
the credit: "Sound: Brakhage" in its description of
this title.

Tenney's music also is used in Jim Shedden's doc,

A good source for this sort of information is the book
"Stan Brakhage: A Guide to References and Resources,"
which extensively lists credits, casts and on-screen
appearnces, and the like. For films by Brakhage only,

I hope this is useful.

I'd be really interested to see what sort of list you
ultimately come up with, particularly any non-Brakhage
film/video Tenney may have been involved with, on or
off list, at your pleasure...
