Two flyer/posters from Don Snyder's Spectro-Mach 1 at the Film-makers' Cinematheque
Spectro-Mach was a multimedia performance by Don Snyder which featured Angus MaClise, Ralph Metzner, Allen Neff, and Diane Rebuffo—and though unlisted on this flyer, assistance was also provided by John Cale. The performance consisted of the minimalist drone compositions of MacLise and Cale along with psychedelic visual projections. Performances took place on December 7 and December 12, 1965 (just after MacLise’s first departure from the Velvet Underground) at the Film-makers' Cinematheque.
Don Snyder was a photographer, poet, and printer best known for his documentation of communes and alternative modes of living in the book Aquarian Odyssey. He was a prominent member of the downtown scene, and friend and collaborator to Ira Cohen, Gerard Malanga, Ralph Metzner, John Cale, and others.
