Superior Elegy


I remember playing this and it was a very cool event. 3 members of Skye Klad came to participate (myself -Jason Kesselring, Erik Wivinus, and Matt Zaun) You can actually see Erik at about 15 mins into the film playing. guitar. Matt played drums and I played Electric Saz. See Erik’s description below.

Travis Wilkerson’s film, Superior Elegy

Documents a collaborative 25-hour drone performance at the NorShor theatre in Duluth Minnesota circa 2002 with a rotating cast of musicians as a memorial to a young man murdered at twenty-five.

I went up there with my then-bandmates in Skye Klad to participate, and appear briefly around 15:15-15:30; our good friend Jesse Petersen also makes an appearance. Hadn’t seen this since it screened just after it was made over ten years ago.
