Going to see this:

Martha Colburn's films at MAD.
The press release states:

Myth Labs by Martha Colburn

Martha Colburn uses cut-and-paste animation techniques to create collage films that are both fantastical and stubbornly rooted in the material. Her recent films use hand-manipulated gels and "special effects" on found footage and original animations. In addition to Myth Labs, the artist will present short films spanning her entire career, each accompanied by a rotating ensemble of seven musicians and foley artists. Martha will also be performing an improvised expanded cinema work incorporating 16mm film, slides and sound. Finally, the evening includes the world premiere of her latest work, Triumph of the Wild, accompanied by renowned pianist Thollem McDonas.
