ANIMAL/object scores experimental films tonight at the Merc

Joel Haertling is one of Boulder's more unusual fixtures: a globetrotting advocate for experimental film and music, over the years he's worked with Stan Brakhage and toyed with noise as Architects Office, all while curating the Boulder Public Library's free film series.

Film and noise -- sculpted sound, anyway -- will both play a part tonight at the Mercury Cafe when the exploratory sound ensemble ANIMAL / object provides a live score for a program of short 16mm film works by both Haertling and Brakhage.

It's the kind of show that doesn't hit town too often, and surely worth the price: free. The films roll at 9:30 p.m.; for details visit the Facebook event page.
