NYC Theatrical Premiere, One Week Only!
*** Live performance by THE DEAD TREES and Filmmakers in person on Friday, 9/9 ***
"CRITICS' PICK. The realities in Nathan Christ's impressive documentary ECHOTONE are, sadly, nothing new. But the emotions surrounding them are nevertheless compelling... Mr. Christ explores these issues with concise clarity, abetted by Robert L. Garza’s striking cinematography."
- Andy Webster, THE NEW YORK TIMES (Sep. 8, 2011)
"The live music scene that draws artists of all stripes to Austin, Texas, and the corporate and residential interests capitalizing on the city's perceived vitality are the subject of ECHOTONE, Nathan Christ's loose but lucid survey of a delicate cultural ecosystem... Too vital for elegy, Echotone tells an old story whose beginning—the inception of a vibrant creative hub—remains mysterious..."
- Michelle Orange, THE VILLAGE VOICE (Sep. 7, 2011)
"Go see it. It's beautifully shot. It's loud. It's terrific."
- Robert Wilonsky, DALLAS OBSERVER
"Clear-eyed, atmospherically rich... A study in urban conflict."
- Michael Phillips, CHICAGO TRIBUNE
WATCH THE TRAILER:
ECHOTONE is a dazzling cultural portrait of Austin, TX (internationally known as "The Live Music Capital of the World") as examined through the lyrics and lens of its creative class. With a telescopic view, director Nathan Christ and cinematographer Robert L. Garza catch vibrant young musicians grappling with questions of commercialism, experimentation, and the future of their beloved city amidst economic downfall. Winner of the 2011 Northside Festival's DIY competition, this rock-n-roll epic makes its New York theatrical premiere with a week-long run, September 9 - 16.
Rising star soul revivalist Black Joe Lewis sells out concert halls by night and delivers fish by day. Cari Palazzolo (of synth pop sensation Belaire) is poised for commercial success but conflicted over the thought of her music being commodified. Avant-garde troubadour Bill Baird, whose band Sound Team enjoyed a major label deal with Capitol Records, were subsequently dropped after one album. A modern parable on integrity set against the backdrop of global paradigm shifts, ECHOTONE interweaves the tales of these emerging artists as a mosaic to illustrate the universal struggle many contemporary fringe cultures are experiencing.
ECHOTONE features appearances by The Apeshits, Belaire, The Black Angels, Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears, Dana Falconberry, The Octopus Project, The Pity Party, Sound Team, Sunset, Ghostland Observatory, Ume, and The White White Lights.
