Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present

Dir: Tyler Hubby
Year: 2016
Country: USA
Duration: 90min

Australian Premiere

A central figure in twentieth-century avant-garde culture Tony Conrad’s biography can be traced through music, cinema and visual art.

Playing with, among others, John Cale and La Monte Young he developed Just Intonation and Minimalism, he played a pivotal role in the formation of the Velvet Underground, and collaborated with German cult group Faust.

Conrad also directed the groundbreaking experimental film Flicker and worked on the soundtrack for the legendary underground movie Flaming Creatures.

Equally at home with public access television, working as an artist, collaborating with musicians and inspiring students, Conrad’s influence extended throughout the worlds of music, art and film.

Filming Conrad since the 1990s, Tyler Hubby’s debut documentary feature, completed shortly before Conrad’s death earlier this year, combines archive and interviews to offer a fascinating portrait of the inspirational artist.
