Chandeliers
Chandeliers
The Chandeliers are an avant-garde electronic collective who have been releasing LPs since 2008 on labels such as Obey Your Brain and Captcha. The lineup consists of core members Scott McGaughey, Chris Kalis, and Harry Brenner. The focus is more instrumental and experimental, conjuring up influences like Bernie Krause and Mort Garson, 90s techno and Jon Hassell.
Theory of Obscurity: A Film about The Residents
Theory of Obscurity offers an unparalleled glimpse behind the scenes of the world’s most mysterious band, The Residents. The original DIY-ers, these private eyes have spent the last four decades following an uncompromising vision that blurs the lines between filmmaking, music, graphic arts, and theater—all while keeping their identities secret. Made in close collaboration with The Residents’ management, the Cryptic Corporation, filmmakers Don Hardy and Barton Bishoff offer a tantalizing mix of never-before-seen footage, behind-the-scenes tour diary, and interviews with Devo, Primus, Ween, and Talking Heads.
