About Recall: 
The project Recall aims to open a platform to reflect and explore the fundamental flaw in the construction of memories through processing and recollection, based on sound or visual compositions. The project’s goal is to allow the act of recall to be executed in a live performance setting, where these elements can be further contemplated.
Recall consists of three projects to perform a set in which memory is activated, not as a true recreation of the moment, but rather a distorted construction of the experience.


Performances: Anthony Janas /Amanda Gutierrez, Nick Briz, The Fortieth Day + Noise Crush

Aunties: Anthony Janas /Amanda Gutierrez

The first project is a collaboration between Amanda Gutierrez and Anthony Janas entitled Aunties. This case focuses on the personal story of two sisters who live in Chicago and its visual analogy with two sisters who live in Mexico City. These relationships seek to emphasize the reflections of middle class women, evident in their oral histories and the spaces they inhabit. The video and sound techniques open the possibility for formal constructions, using metaphors resolved as an abstract portrait.

The Fortieth Day + Noise Crush

Is a live performance collaboration between audio group The Fortieth Day and video artist Lisa Slodki.

The Fortieth Day is the duo of Isidro Reyes and Mark Solotroff, both key players in the heavy-electronics outfit BLOODYMINDED, a band known for its aggressive and confrontational live shows. Solotroff is also known as the vocalist in the doom/shoegaze band Anatomy of Habit. In The Fortieth Day, Reyes and Solotroff utilize guitar, bass, drum machine, and analog synthesizer to create epic, blackened, psychedelic-industrial drone soundscapes, likened to "sustained, withering blasts of high-pitched noise that are as distinct from one another as spotlights sweeping across the night sky; jackhammer clatter, jet-engine whines, and forlorn keyboard melodies dart in and out of those huge sounds with the grace and impunity of plovers picking a crocodile's teeth" [Bill Meyer, Chicago Reader]

Lisa Slodki creates real-time performances and installations, often working in collaboration with the Chicago experimental audio and noise communities. Performing with The Fortieth Day under her Noise Crush moniker, Slodki generates VHS tape loops which are mixed live through a battery of VCRs to construct evolving projected superimpositions. Pulsating light of decaying VHS tape and manipulated found footage conjure familiar yet indiscernible images, engaging with the fragility of both medium and memory.
