John Fekner On The Road 1979 (Concrete Concerto)

2010, 3 minutes.

 This original 1979 8mm silent film was found amongst my old audiotapes and videocassettes. As the film box had survived a flood, I had no idea if anything would be recovered when I had the film transferred to a digital format. All the visual effects are inherent to the water damaged and degraded thirty-year-old silent film stock. There are no effects or edits to the original three-minute standard film. Fred Baca and I drove around Queens and documented the stencils on a few days of shooting in Woodside, Maspeth, Sunnyside and Long Island City. Only the audio track was added, a shortened edit of Concrete Concerto (CC) Oil Drum Mix by the John Fekner City Squad originally released as the B-side of Concrete People, a 12” four song ep record released in 1986.
