Flemington DIY and local promoter, Tape Pencil, are hosting a second event as part of an art

The second event, on Wednesday July 19th, will be a screening of two REYNOLS related
feature films plus the artwork and audio of REYNOLS will still be on dsiplay and availble for

Film 1: Acid Mothers Reynols: Live and Beyond
Dir. Alejandro Maly , Argentina, 2020, 84 min
Featuring: Makoto Kawabata,Miguel Tomasín,
Tabata Mitsuru, Roberto Conlazo, Anla Courtis, Higashi Hiroshi, etc.

A documentary about the unique meeting two internationally recognized bands in the field of
experimental music, drone, psychedelic, avant-garde: Argentine cult provocateurs Reynols and
Japanese wizards Acid Mothers Temple.

In November 2017, Acid Mothers Temple, began their first tour of Latin America. While in Buenos Aires, they invited Reynols to join them onstage. This documentary is a profile of their extraordinary live show and the combined studio recordings that followed.

The film captures the highlights of the sessions in which the bands play live, in a visual language
that corresponds to the mind-expanding moments of the music. We are also exposed to the
musicians during the creation process in the studio, and we can realize how their language and cultural barriers are overcome.

The director’s trippy colorful visual language serves to complement the band’s music. Between the tracks, band members reflect on their work and on spirituality as an essential basis for the development of their music.

Film 2: ‘Sinti Botuva Tapes’ (Reynols Documenetary)
Multiple Directors. Archival Footage 1993-2018. 80 min

Featuring: Miguel Tomasín, Roberto Conlazo, Anla Courtis, Pauline Oliveros, Lee Ranaldo,
Alan Licht etc.

The Argentine cult band Reynols started in Buenos Aires in 1993 and integrates Down Syndrome drummer Miguel Tomasín with guitarists Roberto Conlazo and Alan Courtis. This film compiles a diversity of live concerts and various activities over a period of more than 25 years and screens concurrently with the release of the Reynols boxet “Minecxio Emanations 1993-2018”.

“I know Reynols indeed: they are among the most experimental and wild people I’ve heard”
Thurston Moore

“Long may they confuse” John Olson (Wolf Eyes)

“Reynols is a super band to me. Someday, I wanna fly to Mars with Anla, Rob and Miguel all together. Let’s do asado there.” Mitsuru Tabata (Zeni Geva, Acid Mothers Temple, Boredoms)
