7-Dudley-Cinema-RIA-Event-Venice7 Dudley Cinema presents  a live multi-media experience called RIA (Resonant Interval Algorythmns) aka “FUN with multi-media as a living organism” created by video artists/social engineers Gerry Fialka and Will Erokan. Fialka invites people to “turn your eyes into ears” as live music, dancers and poets (including Jamie Virostko and Tryg Hanson) intermix with experimental films projected on three video screens. Fialka explains “RIA re-imagines Marshall McLuhan as Finnegans Wake. McLuhan helped Timothy Leary come up with “Turn on, tune in and drop out.” McLuhan talks about how the act of reading the Wake out loud evokes the psychedelic experience of LSD.
