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 read They Glistened, a story about gelatinous, symbiotic aliens on a post-apocalyptic Earth, with the help of several jello displays and a white board at Brain Frame Lit, on Saturday, July 27th at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.

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.

Here’s a clip from the 18-minute composition by Night Terror created in tandem with Lyra Hill's slow-pan cinematic journey through a psychedelic nightmare house. The duo will present Dream Home (working title) for the first time at BRAIN FRAME 13. Somebody will undoubtedly scream.

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.

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 BurkholderAlyssa HerlocherJeremy 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.
