Since the early 1960s, Tony Conrad’s vast, inter-disciplinary repertoire has created and influenced major film and compositional movements. He performed in and recorded the soundtrack to Jack Smith’s legendary film Flaming Creatures; he defied conventions of cinema with The Flicker, an experimental structuralist film composed of a precise pattern of alternating black and white frames; he developed and practiced Just Intonation and Minimalism with Karlheinz Stockhausen and La Monte Young; and he was instrumental in the formation of The Velvet Underground.
“Tony Conrad may be one of the most influential artists of our time as well as the most underground. This film achieves the impossible task of capturing the mercurial, relentless and unlikely creative journey of the artist.” – Tony Oursler
