Lyra Hill and Night Terror, the solo electronic prog act from Tyson Torstensen, co-created Dream Home, an immersive, oppressive, psychedelic dreamscape driven by pounding polyphonic rhythms, presenting the work in progress by means of flickering slide projections, cross-dissolving overhead projections, light, smoke, and a ten foot tall nightmare costume at Brain Frame 13 on July 28th, 2013.
LYRA HILL projects at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago, IL and runs Brain Frame. She is currently raising funds for a film about “a sleepover, a séance, and the singular aesthetic capabilities of 16mm film.”
Brain Frame involves a lot of projection, perhaps because facilitator Lyra Hill is a projectionist. Here’s her contribution to the excellent blog Projectionists Draw Projectors, from the Northwest Chicago Film Society.
CAKE was incredible. Hello, new friends from across the globe; hopefully we will be visiting soon! Here’s a photo of Lyra Hill and Lale Westvind, table-mates, who are currently working on the Brain Frame 13 (2nd Anniversary) poster. The poster will feature two strong women engaged in battle, for obvious reasons.

The Brain Frame store has been updated! Poster collaborations with Aaron Renier (Brain Frame 11) and Clay Hickson (Brain Frame 12) are now available online, as well as a lot of other stuff by Lyra Hill, the woman behind Brain Frame, who is writing this right now in the third person. This is a print of Mr. Square at the Pit of Despair, modeled by exclusive hand model Emma Rand.
CAKE FRAME, a hybrid fundraiser event for the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo (CAKE) organized by the performative comix reading series BRAIN FRAME, was a lot of fun and a great success. In between comix performances from Andy Burkholder, Alyssa Herlocher, Jeremy Pettis and Paul Nudd, our host Lyra Hill auctioned off dozens of original artworks by Chicago cartoonists. Emma Rand, Brain Frame’s astronomically talented intern, played Vanna White while musicians Stephen Ptácek and Alex Inglizian improvised accompaniment, on April 12th, 2013.
