Experiencing Interruptions?


On a gray day a weathered sculpture in a public space may go unnoticed, but for the figures weaving through it. Are these two women, or one? The mystery of their circumstance ignites a curiosity of the anonymous subject in this abstract short film.

"A remarkable example of abstract screendance." - Tanz.At

Created and filmed on site at Socrates Sculpture Park in New York City, and featuring the sculpture ‘Balance’ by Kimberly Mayhorn.

Galen Bremer is a composer, producer, and filmmaker based in Brooklyn, NY. From 2016-2017, he was the Artistic Director of Dance Films Association, an NYC based arts organization dedicated to the production, presentation, and preservation of dance on camera, and from 2014-2017 he was the Producer of the Dance on Camera Festival, which is co-presented annually by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and Dance Films Association. Galen is currently Producing for Brooklyn Film Festival, a 10-day international, competitive festival whose mission to promote artistic excellence and the creative freedom of artists without censure. He has produced film projects for a number of other organizations and independent artists that share in his vision of using technology as a means of innovative collaboration and groundbreaking presentation.

Galen’s artwork focuses on experimentation using noise, modular synthesis, sampling, and explores elements of performance art and technology. He frequently collaborates with NYC-based choreographers and filmmakers and has created films and music compositions that have accompanied danceworks at venues in NYC and abroad, such as Judson Memorial Church, New York Theatre Workshop, Dance Theatre of Harlem, New York City Center, Lincoln Center, as well as the Cucalorus Film Festival in Wilmington, NC, New Dance Festival in Daejeon, South Korea and the Muestra Internacional de Videoarte y Videodanza, in Guadalajara, Mexico. He appeared on a panel focused on interactive storytelling and live film technologies at the 2017 SXSW Festival in Austin, TX.

Galen appears on FatCat Records with New York based indie rock band, Forest Fire, and is a member of RIVA, an experimental music group based in NYC. His music has been described as “ominous” (The NY Times) and “addictive, hypnotic” (Pitchfork Media). Bremer earned his B.A. in Performing Arts/Music: Jazz Studies from the University of North Carolina at Asheville, where he focused on contemporary music and improvisation. He was recently composer-in-residence at Fleet Moves Dance Festival in Wellfleet, MA, The Marble House Project in Dorset, VT, and is a 2018-2019 New Music USA Foundation grant recipient. In July-August 2019, Galen was an artist-in-residence at Lake Studios Berlin in Berlin, Germany in collaboration with Zoe Rabinowitz.
