About Nels Cline/Norton Wisdom, Stained Radiance
Guitarist Nels Cline and painter Norton Wisdom, both masters of their medium, joined together in 2009 for an afternoon of sonic and visual improvisation caught on film by Aught Nign. Armed with his guitar and effects, Cline constructs lush soundscapes brought about by Wisdom’s brush-stroke spontaneity. Wisdom in turn follows Cline’s auditory twists creating and recreating the same canvas. The result is Stained Radiance, a DVD capturing two mesmerizing performances with special features like the Norton Headcam, and a behind-the-scenes look into the sessions.
