Published Feb 25, 2014Constellation Records has amassed a rather impressive roster over the years, and a handful of those acts are being showcased in the imprint-celebrating new short film called And We Made the Room Shine.
The film was made by La Blogothèque's François Clos and Thomas Lallier in the autumn of 2012 in Vienna, during the 50th anniversary of the Viennale, but serves to highlight the 15th anniversary of Constellation. As per La Blogothèque's M.O., the intimate performances from artists like Matana Roberts, Do Make Say Think, Mike Moya of Hrsta, Hangedup, Eric Chenaux and Carla Bozulich are all done off-stage in unconventional whereabouts. Take, for instance, Elfin Saddle's cramped restaurant locale, where water glasses are used as part of a performance.
