Betzy Bromberg: Glide of Transparency

Betzy Bromberg: Glide of Transparency

“Images that, once seen, will stay with you forever.” — Holly Willis, LA Weekly

World Premiere

Following A Darkness Swallowed (2005) and Voluptuous Sleep (2011), Betzy Bromberg’s third experimental feature, Glide of Transparency, goes further into translucent abstraction while conveying the intimate feeling of being transported to a sublimated inner garden. Glide of Transparency unfolds in three movements, each layered with its own artful sound design (field recordings of birds and insects, ambient audio, vocals, and a composition for acoustic instruments). The non-narrative progression, Bromberg says, is “a journey devoid of compass bearings, forging pathways without a path.” Luscious curves, vibrant colors, and the scintillating trajectory of light over matter, over filmic texture, echo fragmented memories of paintings we have loved, and, embracing love, bring us to transcendence.
