Conversations with Nature

We have a film installation at Resonance Box sound art gallery for the month of March!   The Stafolk plays the closing night March 31st 7pm!

The event includes a screening of a short film by Jacqueline Ultan (of Jelloslave) Conversations With Nature, which captures her live cello improvisations in a stunning and remote vista of the South Dakota Badlands, followed by Q&A with Jacqueline and the filmmakers (Allison LaBonne and Brian Tighe) along with a live performance by their mutual ensemble The Starfolk (melodic chamber pop featuring vocals, guitar, bass, and cello).

The film has a 15 minute run time distilling the best moments sonically and visually from two days of camping and composing live in the Badlands.  This was an amazing experience for the trio necessitating an evolution of their musical collaboration to include filmmaking in support of Jacqueline’s vision of letting her music magnify and be directly fed by the vivid and sensual expressiveness of the natural world.
