tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE Features

(from late 1975e.v. to december 2011e.v.)

(in order of most recent to oldest - with the exception of the HiTEC documents - which are organized together regardless of how they fit the overall chronology)

It's my impression that a "feature" is usually defined as a movie 70 minutes or longer. I've decided to designate any movie of mine 60 minutes or longer a "feature" & anything under 60 minutes a "short". Why? Maybe it's just because I don't know what term is used to describe 'mid-length' movies. In literature we have novellas in between short stories & novels but what's the movie equivalent? Is a 65 minute film a "long short"? Or a "long shot"? Is an 18 second movie a "short short"? Using this simple length criteria I've listed 100 features below.

HOWEVER, it's not that simple. Many of the movies listed have versions both an hour or longer & shorter versions. Usually, the shorter versions are the ones I consider to be best & I wouldn't even screen the longer versions (except to researchers). But, already, there's at least one exception: "Harps & Angles" - the shorter version is meant to be mainly used in 'performance' & the longer version is the one I would present as the documentary (or "quasi-documentary" as I often prefer). Then there are the features that are not meant to be presented as something to be witnessed alone. They're meant to be used in mixes ("concrete mixes" as I call them) as "usical material" or, more conventionally, "wallpaper". Even though the usical material listed here meets the length criteria I would still disqualify them because their full appreciation doesn't require their being witnessed in their entirety - excerpting from them in units less than an hour would be satisfactory. An even more obvious example of something further to be rejected from the list below are the loops & indefinite duration pieces. While these can certainly play for more than an hour this would just be a formal exercise of little or no value to me.

SO, I'll whittle the list down:

I'll remove 327. "WARNING: TV Suffocates the Senses like a Bag over the Head", 312. a. "Triple-S Variety Show - Orgone Cinema", 308. "watching YOU watching THE END OF TELEVISION",189. "Volunteers Collective", 155. "Official Tour/Ture - '92", 44. "The 8th International Neoist Apartment Festival", 34. "Apt 7", 13. "81 Apt" as having better short versions. I'll remove 230. "Automatic Pilot", 203. a. "Space Ballet" (Usical Material Version in 24 parts), 160. "Color Bars", 172. "El Departamento de Quizás Presenta: una Demostración de Soluciones de Rompecabezas", 152. "F(acinorous)R(efulgent)E(squamate)D(onnered) S.(A.P.F.U. = Surpassing All Previous Fuck-Ups) L(ongiloquent)I(mprolificating)S(kookum)B(ruxomaniacal)E(pigamic)R(isorial)G(awsie)E(rose)R(hapsodomaniacal)", 147. "Concrete Mixing Usical Material Vaudeo #2", 146. "Concrete Mixing Usical Material Vaudeo #1", 139. "Teaser", 136. "Wallpaper Video", 133. "One Word per Person Party", & 37. "Subtitles (analysis projector transfer of 16mm to 1/2" VHS cassette version)" {version 1} as "usical material". I'll remove 28. "Exquisite Corpse", 14. "Silent Speed", 4. "Ghost* [..]", & 3. "Mike Film" as loops or indefinite duration pieces in which the concept of "feature" is inappropriate. That leaves 77 features.

Furthermore, there's the whole selection of HiTEC documents: Some of these are more highly edited than others - it's possible that they'd be of substantial interest to enthusiasts of experimental (M)Usic. However, they're primarily intended to be interim documents to preserve this history - it's my hope to make a very long movie that edits all the HiTEC footage together someday. Given that as of the date of this writing there's something close to 80 hrs of raw footage this is a very daunting task. For the moment, I'll eliminate ALL of these but the exemplary 301. "HiTEC 045 'Full' Group", 309. "HiTEC 051 - New Hazlett Theater", 330. a. "The End of Television", 334 b. "HiTEC @ the VAF", & 350 a. "Infinite Monkey Theorem". That leaves 40 features.

But why stop there? Some of the features are edits sequencing shorts together with the occasional segue element. When these can be experienced satisfactorily in sections because they are more anthologies than they are continuous pieces then they too can be eliminated (although we're getting on shakier ground here with something like 178. "FILMSTRIPS" which is highly edited to work together as a single piece). An EXCEPTION would be 215. "Hibonsa o osoleluna! "Heibon" ga omae o Dame m sulumaeni" ("Kill Normality Before It Kills You") which I think is best experienced as a feature (even though the shorts within it are often presented separately). This criteria pulls out 260. "IMP ACTIVISM 7", 247. "IMP ACTIVISM #6", 212. "IMP ACTIVISM #2", 201. "IMP ACTIVISM #1", 178. "FILMSTRIPS", 157. "2 Yrs of "Official" History" / ""Official" Thistory", & 68. "An Incomplete History of APT Festivals". That reduces the features total to 33!

What the fuck! Let's get even more severe, shall we? (Just who am I addressing, anyway?) Let's cut out the features that are as long as they are because they're documentaries of events that try to be inclusive even though their inclusiveness is unlikely to be of any interest to anyone other than the participants. In other words, features that I have no intention of screening. An exception here (even though it could be objected to as being just as tediously 'comprehensive' as everything I'm cutting otherwise) is 365. "Innisfree Reading", 214. "Circumsubstantial Playing & Blindfolded Tourism" - maybe because I think I made a pretty good edit. Whacked out are 117. "I Plagiarized This Title From Outer Space Junk Mail", 67. "Ultimatum II", 58. "Not So Private Life (1st edit)", 38. "t he Telectropheremoanin'quinquennial", 33. "14BX Sub-Par/Con", & 12. "Attempt to Undermine Reality Maintenance Traps". That makes a new total of 26 features - but, by now, the standards are getting pretty dodgy.

DODGY or not, I will now eliminate further! 63. "Easter Island Bunny Edit" was meant to be used in 'performance' (& the variations can be rejected by the previous paragraph's 'rules'). That leaves:

HiTEC documents:

- HiTEC (Histrionic Thought Experiment Cooperative) was originally proposed as "Sonic Aughts Union" by tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE after a May '08 gig in a library by t,ac; Margaret Cox; Rick Gribenas; & Steve Boyle. When "Sonic Aughts Union" failed to materialize as cONVENIENCE originally imagined, it transformed into HiTEC & into more orchestral dimensions. Its 1st rehearsal was on July 14, 2008. In an attempt to document every rehearsal, mini-dv has been shot, sometimes w/ 2 cameras, sometimes w/ the camera(s) only on (a) tripod(s), sometimes w/ camera operators - & explanatory titles have been added. The numbers in the title represent the number of the rehearsal & the letters represent the sub-group of HiTEC that was rehearsing. 'Full' groups are designated as such. The order they're presented in here is an approximate recreation of the order in wch they were made.
