Bruce McClure and Gregg Biermann

Bruce McClure began experimenting with simple cinematic devices in 1994. Since then he has concentrated on expanded projector performance pieces, using between one and four modified film projectors, rhythmically patterned film loops, guitar effects pedals and analogue sound equipment to produce intense sensory experiences. He has presented his film performances in festival and arts venues around the world. Gregg Biermann is Co-President of the New American Cinema Group/Filmmakers Cooperative in New York and is Professor of Cinema Studies at Bergen Community College in New Jersey. Often working with footage from Hollywood classics, Biermann’s work takes advantage of the possibilities of digital cinema to advance rigorous compositional strategies. He and Bruce McClure have made several video pieces together.
