Coupler presents “Our Heavenly Bodies” at Constellation

OUR HEAVENLY BODIES (Wunder der Schöpfung)
with live accompaniment by Coupler

Dir. Hanns Walter Kornblum, Germany, 1925, 91 min., NR, Digital

In 1925, German director Hanns Walter Kornblum set out to create a film unlike any that had come before. His aim was a film that would serve as both a summation of all the astronomical knowledge available at the time and a dreamy investigation of what wonders might await humanity at the advent of space travel. With the help of 15 special effects technicians and nine cameramen, Kornblum’s film is a technical marvel, one that revels in the beauty and mysteries of the universe, reminiscent of Carl Sagan’s COSMOS more than 50 years later. Digital Restoration by Filmmuseum München.

ABOUT COUPLER
Coupler is less a band than a creative organization. Founded in 2012 by Lambchop veteran Ryan Norris, its core is Norris along with Rodrigo Avendaño and Rollum Haas though its membership has at points swelled to as many as eight. At its root the project is an exercise in mutual cooperation of creative individuals and is an exploration of the intersections of man and machine, live and recorded, composed and improvised, stasis and flux.

“… exploring the nether-regions where the organic collides with the electronic…captivating and unhurried techno that sounded bucolic at first, then violent, then crumbling, but always with a deft momentum. You could feel it in your gut and in your skull…” – Ben Swank, Third Man Records

Winner of Best Film at the Moscow Film Festival, and Bulgaria’s official Oscar entry, this coming-of-age drama/comedy centers on a pivotal few days in the lives of four students on the eve of a famous rock band’s gig in their backwater town. Critics have found parallels to the deadpan humor of Aki Kaurismäki and Roy Andersson in this story rife with romantic pratfalls and absurdity that springs from the hopeless and sometimes hilarious depths of working class grunge. The imminent rock concert fires imaginative rebellion and thoughts of a future beyond their dead-end burg for Koko, Elena, Patso, and Gosho, but there’s a steep learning curve ahead for guys and gals alike when the band’s randy lead singer makes the scene.

French architect Caroline (Croze of THE BARBARIAN INVASIONS) and Finnish musician Jaakko connect at a hotel bar in the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius and wake up in bed together the next morning: no fuss, no strings, no commitments. But, when a volcanic ash cloud from Iceland delays Caroline’s flight out indefinitely, the pair are compelled to reevaluate their relationship — just a one-night stand, or something less ephemeral? Other questions accumulate: What really happened that first night together? Why did Caroline lie about not being able to speak English? And what about the significant others they speak to on their cell phones? There are echoes of BEFORE SUNRISE and LOST IN TRANSLATION in this romantic tale of two strangers in a foreign city, but director Kuparinen (BODY FAT INDEX OF LOVE) — with a keen sensitivity to textures, nonverbal communication, and the limpid sunlight of Vilnius — contributes a fresh perspective on the slippery nature of love in a borderless modern world. Winner of the Best Director Award at the Montreal World Film Festival. In English, Finnish, and French with English subtitles. Courtesy of Wide Management.

Dogs At Large
https://dogsatlarge.bandcamp.com/
“Sat somewhere between the 90’s, Punk, Garage and Rock n’ Roll, Chicago exports Dogs At Large have recently returned from an audio-fashion shoot with the above and defiantly proclaimed, ‘It’s Nothing I’d Wear’…a release that doesn’t really sit anywhere in the genre-base specifically, rather on the fringe on a self-made eclectic seat … It is indeed “radio friendly” but beneath that facade there’s a beating heart of grit that’s barely suppressed and it beckons you.”
-Musically Fresh

Electric Sheep
http://electricsheepchicago.bandcamp.com/
Electric Sheep are dual singer-songwriter fronted Psychedelic Pop from Chicago. Rooted in 60s pop songcraft, E-sheep often scale back to hooky groovy psych.

Bandy
https://bandyband.bandcamp.com/releases
Grown out of the sludgy agar petri dish that is Chicago music, Bandy compiled in Summer 2016 to bring about revolutionary good times and sing about the vicissitudes of our many lives. Having performed previously with the late, great Bricklayers Foundation, Adam Cohen-Leadholm and Ross Howard have teamed up once again with some dear old friends to bring about an exciting new sound inspired by glam rock, psych-pop, post-punk, and R&B. Come share in the love!
