See the Voice: Visible Verse 2010 – 10th Anniversary Celebration & Festival

NOVEMBER 19-20

Curated & Hosted by Heather Haley

Pacific Cinémathèque and Vancouver poet, author, musician and media artist Heather Haley celebrate 10 years of Visible Verse! First presented at Pacific Cinémathèque in 2000, when the event was known as the Vancouver Videopoem Festival, Visible Verse is a special annual program devoted to video poetry (also known as poetry film or cine-poetry), a hybrid creative form that integrates verse with media-art visuals produced by a camera or a computer. This year, to celebrate its 10th anniversary, Visible Verse features an expanded two-day festival program made up of screenings (including both retrospective and current works), live spoken-word/poetry performances, and a panel discussion.

Ellyn Maybe on Nights At The Sound Table Tonight @ 7:30pm!

November 10th, 2010

Nights_at_the_sound_table_ellyn_maybe
Mike Stark Says: One of the shows we’re doing LIVE every Wednesday night from the LA Radio Studio is “Nights At The Sound Table”. We will be doing our 31st show this coming Wednesday and in case you haven’t already checked out the program I wanted to invite you to give it a listen. In a world where there is talk radio and music radio, this show is a rarity in that it is a “talk show about music”. Our panelists, most of the time are just music fans, but occasionally we throw in a person of “note” to mix it up a little. Last week we featured John Spiker from Tenacious D and Trainwreck and this week we’re honored to have on our panel – world renown poet Ellyn Maybe. The show is hosted by Filmmaker, writer and music enthusiast, Kevin Poore and I produce the show. The way the show works is that Kevin throws out a “musical question” to the panelists and the chaos ensues. Two examples of the questions you’ll hear this week on the show are:

WHO IS THE GREATEST LYRICIST IN THE HISTORY OF POPULAR MUSIC?

and

THE MOST PRETENTIOUS ROCK SONG EVER RECORDED IS…?

Ellyn Maybe and Her Band Jam with Jackson Browne for the Plastic Pollution Coalition

November 9th, 2010
Ellyn Maybe and Jackson Browne rocked the crowd the night before the Plastic Pollution Coalition’s heavy-weight Tedx Event at the Annenburg Community Beach House. Ellyn was among many incredible speakers, scientists, artists and activists all working to raise public awareness about plastic pollution and the crisis of our oceanic ecosystems. The reception for the event couldn’t have been more beautiful and the focus of the evening couldn’t have been more pressing. Check out the Plastic Pollution Coalition’s important work here and enjoy some photos from the event!
