The Composers Lab Experiment: Braden King, Shahzad Ali Ismaily, Deborah Johnson

Institute History

  • 2008 Sundance Film Festival


This live, multimedia film and music event explores the prenarrative either from which a movie emerges. A collaboration between lab fellows Braden King (filmmaker) and Shahzad Ali Ismaily (composer) with video artist Deborah Johnson, this performance shines a light on the literal and metaphoric maps of the atmospheric tone and dreamlife from which King's new feature, Here, is now awakening.
