Product Notes

What if video was just another musical instrument to play with? In Jess Rowland's new release, Scenes from the Silent Revolution, we get an answer to that question. Jess takes found video of McDonald's children's video propaganda, Ashcroft 'singing' his song 'Let The Eagle Soar,' Barbie promotional videos, and so much more pop culture tripe, then puts them through the improvisational blender to produce this DVD of 'found video sound sculptures.' Representing new approaches to the symbiosis of moving pictures and sound waves, these pieces have been performed live at arts spaces, new music venues, and movie theaters around San Francisco, and are now available for consumption in the comfort of your own home. This one-of-a-kind 2-disc set also features a CD of Jess' art-damage electronic music, and cover art by Chris Woods. Bio: A self-taught musician and composer, Jess has performed in in a wide range of venues such as Cafe Du Nord (with her improv group Soundchaser), The Big Sur Experimental Music Festival (playing a baloney sandwich), and indie movie theaters (with her multimedia video pieces). Her collaborations with The Werepad and Dreamland Theater have produced her award-winning puppet-shows, live movie soundtracks, and musical plays. Her most-recent focus on multi-media projects, such as The Barbie Explosion, earned her a grant from The American Composers Forum for 'John Ashcroft vs. The Space Librarians,' and ultimately lead to the completion of Scenes From the Silent Revolution, her most recent release on Pax Recordings. She has also recently completed a new play for Dreamland Theater, and a score for modern dance troupe Shift's Summerfest Dance performance at Cowell Theater. Jess is currently putting together another band for new live experimental projects.
