The Wounded Galaxies Festival begins in Bloomington on Thursday, October 8th. The four-day festival includes film screenings, musical performances and other events that emphasize what organizers call “the subversive potentials of montage, remixes, appropriations, cutups and rearrangements of all kinds.” Participants include the feminist, fictionalist, and DIY filmmaker Chris Kraus, as well as bassist, composer and improviser James Ilgenfritz, who will be performing at the first event Thursday at the Bishop. The group behind the festival is known as The Burroughs Century, Ltd. WFHB News Director Joe Crawford spoke with Charles Cannon and Laura Ivins, two officers in that organization for today’s WFHB community report. The report includes music by the Baltimore-based duo, Matmos, which will be performing Friday night at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater.
