Copenhagen Contemporary is proud to host the online premiere of the audio-visual version of The Fifty Eleven Project, the ambient album composed by Kasper Bjørke Quartet. The 11 short films, one for each composition, are written & directed by LA based director and visual artist Justin Tyler Close. Along with the screening of all 11 films, visitors also will get the chance to listen to two DJ mixes by Kasper Bjørke, recorded specifically for the premiere event right here on Copenhagen Contemporary´s website.

Justin Tyler Close says:

Dear World,
It’s difficult to find the words amidst a time of greater importance but I’ll do my best at introducing THE FIFTY ELEVEN PROJECT, which premieres on JUNE 18TH with COPENHAGEN CONTEMPORARY.
First off, thank you KASPER BJØRKE QUARTET! You created a timeless record, which sonically explores an emotional journey through a cancer diagnosis. Turning such trauma into music is a powerful gift very few possess.
As a director, it was a dream to have the soundtrack before shooting a single frame. Not often do I get such freedom.
I’m so proud of everyone who worked on this unique project. It took TWO (long) YEARS to fully finish, traveling from LA to a little island in DENMARK called LIVØ.
We shot eleven films in eight days through wild & extreme environments. It wasn’t easy, and the fact that we finished (alive) is nothing short of a MIRACLE!
Our intention with THE FIFTY ELEVEN PROJECT was to build a video installation that slows down & isolates the audience through the audio-visual experience.
A series of films that explores one man’s journey through life & death, performed by the vigorous KRISTJAN INGIMARSSON
Making any film is challenging, but making a 2-hour film with no dialogue relying solely on his emotive performance was exigent.
A special THANK YOU! to my director of photography, SNORRE RUHE, producer KASPER NOTLEV & editor JEFF WATTERSON.
This is a project I’ll remember for the rest of my career & I thank everyone who donated their time & artistry. I hope you enjoy!
Please BE KIND to one-another.
Love,
JUSTIN TYLER CLOSE
xoxo
