|2021 EDITION / DOKBIZIA / THE WORKS AND DAYS: THE BLACK SECTIONS|
What you will hear is one side of a forthcoming LP, The Works and Days: The Black Sections, that emerged out of the film, The Works and Days (of Tayoko Shiojiri in the Shiotani Basin). The film is the second feature of C.W. Winter and Anders Edström—an eight-hour geographic fiction shot over a period of fourteen months in a mountain village in Kyoto Prefecture, Japan. The album is a re-edited sound collage from the film’s production material featuring musical excerpts from Tim Berne & Bill Frisell, Tony Conrad, Graham Lambkin, Mary Jane Leach, Alvin Lucier, Phill Niblock, Folke Rabe, Éliane Radigue, and Akio Suzuki.
C.W. Winter was born in Newport Beach, California. In 2020, he completed his DPhil in Art Practice & Theory at the University of Oxford. He received his MFA from California Institute of the Arts where he studied closely under Thom Andersen, James Benning, and Allan Sekula. He has directed two feature films with Anders Edström: The Works and Days and The Anchorage. His writing has appeared in Cinema Scope, Moving Image Source, Purple, and Too Much. He currently teaches in the Department of Sculpture at the Royal College of Art. He lives in Oxford, United Kingdom.
