FILM SERIES with Eric Isaacson OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

A COSMIC AND EARTHLY HISTORY OF RECORDED MUSIC
ACCORDING TO MISSISSIPPI RECORDS
This admittedly whirlwind presentation attempts to sum up the entire history of recorded music starting with the birth of all stars in the universe and ending in the dark ages of the 1980’s. To tell this story, Mississippi Records representative Eric Isaacson uses 45 minutes of film, 166 slides, and many audio samples. Also being shown are many novel and strange pieces of film that drive home how high and low culture can fly.
Wed June 22 8pm – 9pm
INCLUDING A SHORT PRESENTATION ON ECSTATIC TRUTH
Mississippi Records presents one of the most influential films on its philosophy, The Secret Life of Plants! A beautiful film, originally released in 1978 featuring a tripped out Stevie Wonder Soundtrack, stunning stop motion photography showing the life of plants, deep in sites into the meaning of life and much more! After the film, Eric Isaacson from Mississippi Records will give a very short slide show and film presentation on Waylon Green (the director of Secret Life) and the concept of Ecstatic Truth.
Thurs June 23 8pm – 9pm
I DON’T FEEL AT HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE:
Film, stories & images from the Mississippi Records and Alan Lomax archive
A film, music and aural presentation by Eric Isaacson of Mississippi Records. Featuring archival film, images & stories spanning 1890 to the present day. The live footage performances are culled from rarely seen film shot during Alan Lomax’s North American travels between 1978 to 1985 and Mississippi Record’s own enormous library of folk blues, gospel, esoteric, international & punk music.
Mississippi Records has produced over 200 releases on LP & 100 releases on cassette tape. They have managed to do this on a shoestring budget, without ever advertising or engaging in promotion of any kind & distributing only through DIY avenues. Eric Isaacson is the founder of the label & is responsible for much of the graphic design, editing & producing of its releases. He also owns & operates the Mississippi Records retail shop in Portland, Oregon.
Cost: Each Film $2 and includes POPCORN BAR! Hot tea and coffee provided.
