'A Noisy Delivery,' a film by GX Jupitter-Larsen comes to Eyedrum

A film about what happens when people go to the post office for philosophy instead of postage

This Friday, Aug. 30, Eyedrum will host a screening of A Noisy Delivery, a film that was conceived and created by Hollywood-based noise/performance artist GX Jupitter-Larsen. The film's synopsis:

"A couple were going to get together after the girlfriend had dropped off her package, but the boyfriend will have to keep waiting. Everyone, it seems, was at the post office for philosophy instead of postage."

As cryptic as this may seem, it's pretty much a face-value breakdown of the narrative that Jupitter-Larsen wanted to get across in the film. When pressed, he offered just a bit more: "Is there a film out there that influenced me on this? Yes. A type of film. French New Wave. But also The Reckless Moment, the 1949 film noir melodrama starring James Mason. There's a scene in which a disgruntled postal customer tells the clerk that she didn't come to the post office for philosophy. When I first heard this line I said to myself, wouldn't it be great if people DID go to the post office for philosophy? So I made a movie where people did just that."

The soundtrack for the film features a composition that's built around the sounds of broken toy pianos and "amplified erosion" - the latter of which is a common theme throughout much of his recorded material. As the ideas in the movie become more difficult, the soundtrack grows increasingly dense.

Sadly, GX Jupitter-Larsen won't be at the screening, but there will be a full line-up of likeminded noisemakers on deck before the film shows, including Suffer Bomb Damage, Black Natural (Cursory & Mr. Natural), and Michael Payne.

Fri., Aug. 30. $3. 9 p.m. Eyedrum, C4 / FUSE Arts Center, 115 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, Suite 225.
