download the score Saturday night saw the premiere of Univore’s short film “I Dream the Video” at Heaven Gallery as part of the 2013 Chicago International Music and Movies Festival. A crowd of somewhere between 28 and 1,000 people attended, most of whom made us absolutely blush with their cheers during and after the screening. We appreciate the appreciation. Lead actor Marco Casale was there, too, wrapped in the very scarves he wore in the film, which he later tried to sell to various females in the audience as memorabilia before deciding to just give them away as gifts. Marco, your star continues to burn brightly. Heard from the field on Saturday night: * “Nice movie.” * “My favorite scene was where Marco eviscerated the chicken carcass. Speaking of which, was that one of those rotisserie jobs from Dominick’s? Either
Univore made a movie. Back in January, the good people at the Chicago International Movies and Music Festival invited us to submit an original short film to this year’s festival. We didn’t take the invitation lightly. The result, on which our post production has just put the finishing touches, is called I Dream the Video, and it stars our friend and muse Marco Casale. I Dream the Video also features new music written and performed by Univore with featured guest artist, saxophonist Louis Stockwell. I Dream the Video is scheduled to screen on Saturday, April 20th at 9:30 PM at Heaven Gallery, located at 1550 N. Milwaukee, Chicago, IL. In addition, it’s going to be fun. For more details about our submission and the many others for this year’s CIMMFest, as well as information on tickets, go here. If your
In case you missed it last week, Univore enjoyed our first ever radio interview, the good people at Fearless Radio having found us interesting enough to put in front of microphones to answer a series of questions, as tends to happen during interviews. Marco Casale was there, too. It was a treat. You can hear the fifty-minute piece here in its entirety. Many thanks to all of our supporters from all corners of the world for tweeting in your hard-hitting questions. You threw us some real curveballs.

We look forward to being contacted by Terry Gross from Fresh Air. Univore loves you.
Univore was much validated that a number of you have already invited the melodies of “Beasts from a Silk Womb” into your personal auditory systems without abusing them too severely. Not only that, your appreciation seems to transcend mere tolerance. Unless you’re lying to protect our feelings, it sounds like you like it. At least one of you even danced. From Dale in Topeka: “Boys, you done it again. You caused a stir in my bones. Couldn’t help myself. When that one song about laying on the hands came on, I got up and danced my way through the house. Even made my dog bark. She don’t like it when I make those sorts of movements. Anyway, this divorce has been really difficult and I just want…” Thank you, Dale. At least one of you was apparently aroused. From Cole:
