Accompanied by a live original soundtrack, Silver Ochre: Who Are US is an ever-evolving film that illustrates America today by two perpetually traveling artists.
From March to November, 2016 Thollem Electric and ACVilla will be touring throughout the lower 48 states. As the duo travels around the country, they will be recording moments and places in each state, weaving the new footage into the original version of the film. With every screening/performance on this tour, Silver Ochre will represent a greater diversity of this country, eventually interweaving aspects of all 48 states. They will begin and end the tour at Guild Cinema in Albuquerque, screening the initial version of the movie March 31st and the final version November 6th, just before election day.
The movie focuses the eye on the myriad points where people meet each other and their environment. The intention is to wake up each day to experience this country as it is in this moment in time, and to share the findings through creative means. A quest guided by questions with no precise answers: Who Are US? How do we find out?
The music is inspired by a lifetime of traveling this country, weaving together elements from different sources in unique ways. Thollem’s intention is not to emulate any music specifically but to find commonalities and interesting differences that express appreciation for, and the experience of, an extremely multi-cultural country. Thollem is developing the music on an instrument that gives him almost infinite sonic possibilities.
