LITERATURE & ROCK N' ROLL
An old friend of LFF, Dan Stone, founded a print magazine devoted to literature and rock n' roll in San Francisco at the height of the tech boom. It would be a non-profit endeavor, no ads, featuring live events, performances, and writings where the traditional boundaries between music and literature would be blurred and blended. Writers would sing original songs and musicians would garner literary awards for the magazine. It was a scrappy enterprise, built out of a mutual love for independent art by all involved. We were proud to be the official film producer of Radio Silence.
Each live event film presented a unique opportunity to blend and bend aspects of documentary, music video, and spoken-word art forms.
"If the Paris Review were starting today, it would be called Radio Silence. And if Melville were starting today, Radio Silence is where he’d want to be. How many journals can you say that about? And how many others do you read cover to cover?"
—playwright David Ives
