GRAYSON GILMOUR | LOOSE CHANGE




GRAYSON GILMOUR | LOOSE CHANGE [FLYING NUN RECORDS]

"Shot by Jesse Taylor Smith on 16mm on an antique Russian Krasnogorsk camera, Loose Change features a succession of movies within movies until it seems that everyone and everything could be on a set (apart, perhaps, from the photographer in the pig's head). Piano and glockenspiel build, crash and ebb as a model helicopter fights a fire in a building (life nearly imitated art when the stovetop pyrotechnics almost got out of hand); and, at the meta-end, the couple watching the 'Stay Indoors' message on the TV are themselves revealed to be outside on a footpath.."
