Dave Matthews Band violinist, Boyd Tinsley, will be at ISU for a screening of the “psychedelic” film he produced, “Faces in the Mirror,” at 7 p.m. tonight in Capen Auditorium, Edwards Hall Room 235.
“This is a film that’s not only meant to be seen, it’s meant to be experienced,” the film’s synopsis states. “It’s a film that dances with the music and takes you on an emotional roller-coaster ride that never lets you go.”
“It is a psychedelic film driven by music and dance,” Charlie Booth, ISU junior and event coordinator for ISU’s Documentary Project, said.
The film’s story was written around the soundtrack, Booth said. The Dave Matthews Band-produced soundtrack was written first.
“There are dozens of DMB-produced tracks that have never been released on an album before,” he added. “Viewers will have a chance to hear some unique DMB music.”
After the screening, Tinsley will be playing an acoustic set with the band Curbside, Booth said.
In between, he will conduct a Q&A where students will have the opportunity to ask questions about his band, and film and production experience.
The Documentary Project originally wanted to hold the event in Braden Auditorium, but Tinsley “shut that idea down” because he wanted a smaller venue where he could interact with fans on a more intimate level, Booth said.
Following the show, fans will have the opportunity for a “very personable” meet and greet with Tinsley, Booth said.
Attendees will have the opportunity for pictures and autographs.
The band Tinsley will be playing with, Curbside, is “considered one of Chicago’s best alternative rock bands,” Booth said.
When he told the lead singer of Curbside, Jim Herbert, about the opportunity to play with Tinsley, he was met on the phone with “laughter” and “disbelief.”
“It is a very exciting event for fans and a really great opportunity for any students involved in music, dance, film-making … as they will all have the opportunity to converse with Boyd and get a great insight into all the elements of art used in the film and in his life,” Booth said.
The event is free and open to the public.
