The Freddy McGuire Show: Interview
Join us for an interview with Anne McGuire and Wobbly. Since the late eighties, Anne McGuire has been making films, and Wobbly (Jon Leidecker) has been making electronic music. Together, Anne and Jon form the duo more widely known as the Freddy McGuire Show. Technology provokes subtle changes in everything that it touchesincluding the human voice. And when it feels that it must, that voice will sing about what it may or may not feel like to be an American in an age where social media is redefining the meaning of the word stalker. Combining the vocals and invasive surveillance cameras of renowned video artist Anne McGuire, and the familiar and simultaneous melodies of the collagist Wobbly, the Freddy McGuire Show will perform spontaneously improvised oldies accompanied by live and prerecorded camera feeds that both document and create. Part Hollywood musical, part documentary, part horror film, and part nature study, their performance will offer the challenging narrative that every audience likes to read about before its made into a movie; the fact that it will also be something that is actually happening might be less than the point.
