Saturday, July 13, 2013
Kraine TheaterShow: 7:30pm
This event is All ages
In between films at the Rocks Off Film Festival, we go into planetarium mode with a rock'n roll light show live-mixed on a keytar by psychedelic video artist, B.A Miale!
BAMiAM.tv aka B.A. Miale is an NYC-based multifaceted video artist. Aside from directing music videos for Marc Ribot, The Giraffes, Les Savy Fav, Hopewell and Moby's metal band Diamondsnake, in 2007 she figured out how to mash up video clips in real-time on a keytar. Over sixty bands and 200 light shows later, she is a unique and explosive visual machine.
B.A. has mixed live visuals for 2 Skinnee J's, DJ Jonathan Toubin, Rain Machine (Kyp Malone from TVOTR), The Bruise Cruise Festival 1&2 (Black Lips, Thee Oh Sees, Quintron & Miss Pussycat, Fucked Up, King Kahn & The Shrines etc), Frankie Rose, The Bogmen, Vic Thrill, The Wau Wau Sisters, Dick Dale, Anna Copa Cabanna, Bosco Delrey, Corn Mo, The Giraffes, White Mystery, Camper Van Beethoven, outrageous circus acts, a rock'n roll ventriloquist and many more. Her playfully psychedelic imagery, has been spewed up and down the east coast and beyond from fancy-pants concert venues to crazy-ass art spaces.
B.A is also a full time member of three bands (Firecracker Firecracker, Ice Balloons and 2 Skinnee J's,) a creative consultant for businesses large and small (MTV Networks, Magic Fun Store Tattoos) and a rock and roll DJ for almost a decade.
