History and place have long been muses for Canadian artist Stan Douglas, whose peripatetic, time-traveling work includes film, video, photography and installations. The two muses conjoin in Douglas's riveting six-hour film Luanda-Kinshasa (2013), which purports to document an eclectic band recording in a famous New York studio in the mid-1970s. Between 1949 and 1981, the Columbia 30th Street Studio in Manhattan was legendary. There, pivotal, genre-spanning albums were made: Miles Davis's Kind of Blue, Bob Dylan's {*style:<i>*}Highway 61 Revisited{*style:</i>*}, Pink Floyd's {*style:<i>*}The Wall{*style:</i>*}, Leonard Bernstein's {*style:<i>*}West Side Story{*style:</i>*}, and the 1955 and 1981 versions of Bach's {*style:<i>*}Goldberg Variations{*style:</i>*} by Glenn Gould, among many others.
