Bruce mc Clure:

‘Bruce McClure’s film projector is a weapon. Its ammunition is raw light. Darkness is both its adversary and its matrix. Radiant blasts inflame the theatre of perception. The void retaliates. This is a cinema of thunder and light­en­ing.’ ­- OtherFilm

McClure forcefully employs the phenomena of visual flicker and the phasing of sound to create long form, trance like states of ‘ecstatic reverie’. Adapting the gate of the projector by inserting metal plates, and using alternating loops of flicker film, McClure deftly adjusts projector focus and lamp intensity to elicit physiological effects. Film loops double up as a pulsing optical soundtrack, which McClure modulates using guitar delay and distortion pedals to exact a polyrhythmic experience.

McClure has performed at major international festivals and venues including International Film Festival Rotterdam, OtherFilm, Australia, AV Festival, UK, Apparent Motion, San Francisco Cinematheque, Toronto International Film Festival, New York Film Festival’s Views of the Avant-Garde, Whitney Biennial, Walker Art Center, and Wexner Center for the Arts.
