Terity Entitory plays a Palace Film Festival at the beautiful Fine Arts Building in Chicago. January 2015. 

"Palace Film Festival is the collaboration between Anna Cerniglia, Heather Gabel, and Robert Stockwell.  It's showcases non-commercial films and videos by reaching out to non-traditional filmmakers that push and pull at the boundaries of the moving image.  "
Palace Film Festival was produced by Johalla Projects, Cinema Libertad, and Floodgates Audio.

PointerMyth is a short journey through a virtual realm, a realm where the mind of its creator meets with the mind of the viewer. This realm is a place where somewhat silly video games and commercial graphics meet evocative dreams and mythology.

PointerMyth is not so much a story, but rather an immersive experience of vision and sound. The images are humorous and beautiful by turns, inducing a playfully poetic experience of things strange and familiar.

Our world provides more images than it knows what to do with. While the meanings of the different kinds of images are difficult to disentangle, they are nonetheless alive. The emoji man of PointerMyth looks to the classical statue of Athena, and Athena looks back at him. The dream that we all share is somewhere in the vastness between and around them.

i - 0is a video-picture, a slowly morphing animation of a single pair of hands attending to a mysterious electronic
field. Occasionally, the letter "i" and the numeral "0" are revealed. Called forth from the virtual expanse, outside the grasp of the ego's agenda (hands), a potential for the union of diffusion and drift.

Hiding Lost Things

A collaborative endeavor—a duet between media and persons—Hiding Lost Things cultivates movement vocabulary from Bradford’s daily public practice and sound vocabulary from Mattei’s ongoing music compositions. Bradford and Mattei seek to apply the form and function developing to psychographic unravellings revealed in the work and in our lives

"BloodLight is an impressionistic depiction of vampires in real life, hungry and sensual beings among shadows. The piece is stylized in its blurred distinction between fictional narrative and video documentary. Picking up on the reinvigorated interest in vampire mythology in the last 10 or so years (Twilight, Let the Right One In, etc..), BloodLight investigates this mythology from a perspective that is low, sensual, and whispering below convention."  Exhibition Synopsis

Healing  video installation at Carrie Secrist Gallery, Chicago. 

http://www.secristgallery.com/exhibitions/2011/todd-mattei-healing/

"Opening September 9 in the project room, Carrie Secrist Gallery is pleased to present a two-channel video installation by Todd Mattei titled Healing (2011). Using fragmentary images of lighting fixtures, the piece explores the body’s relationship to time and ritual. With the work Mattei creates a mythology of the circuit, the respiratory system, and lightness."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

from the Other Electricities description 

"German for Shark was to trust each musician to add and subtract, interact with the sound, and practice restraint. These are predominantly improvised sessions committed to record, with limited manipulation of what would become the final songs/tracks. Each contribution is 'of the moment' — a creation of sound that really can never truly be replicated within a live setting—and that’s the point. "

German for Shark: 
Jonathan Krohn – piano/electronics; Benjamin Mjolsness - guitar; Jason Adasiewicz (Exploding Star Orchestra) - vibraphone; Josh Berman (Exploding Star Orchestra) - cornet; Steven Hess (Pan American/Haptic/Fessenden) – percussion; Todd Mattei (Joan of Arc) - guitar; Mike Reed (Exploding Star Orchestra) - percussion; Hometapes recording artist Nick Butcher – tape; and Dave Rempis (Vandermark 5) – saxophone.
