01- Exomène & Dorianne Wotton - Side by side, 2012
DVD PAL 16:9 | 02’:33” | from Paris, France.

& www.dorianne-wotton.com


A new A/V performance by Exomene and Dorianne Wotton.
I got lost in life. I do not know how or why it happened. But one day I woke up and I was there. Nowhere. It seemed unreal. I liked it. I found myself by my side. "Side by side". Many things, if they were real, couldn't give pleasure. However, they manage to do so through the game of fantasy. Many emotions, even troubling ones, can be a great source of enjoyment. So, just like a child who plays, we create an imaginary world that we take seriously. We give it large amounts of affects, while we clearly distinguish the reality. But actually, what is real? What is imagination? What if both found themselves "side by side"? It's like a waking dream. We mobilize our intuitive, imaginative, creative and contemplative capabilities. We make this dream a mean to access to a paradoxical and illuminated reality. A reality perceived in both its lightness and its infinite absolute strangeness. To end up "side by side". Confusion of time, space, colors, identities. Interaction with someone which is nobody else but me. Or my image. Out of my body. "Side by side" ... [dorianne wotton & exomène]

04- ∆AIMON + Mike TEXTBEAK & William Sarradet - EMPTINESS, 2012 - DVD PAL 16:9 | 04’:31” | from USA.

Video by Count Backwards (William Sarradet) > http://wsarradet.wordpress.com/

The video operates as a cinematic collage that aims to fortify the expressive qualities of the sound. Many of my usual devices in video composition are seen here: driving sequences, video artifacts and macro shots of CRT monitors, obscured physiology. Here, they have been applied to indicate allusion to a subject or a narrative that isn't clear. Vague narrative and disorienting perspective play to the properties of the image of ∆AIMON as well as the fact that this track is remixed by TEXTBEAK. Driving in the pouring rain, to an undisclosed location, accompanied by images of a veiled identity fortify the aesthetic of the band. One way to view my video work is as an interpretation of the source audio as a texture, or a visual attitude that reflects the emotive qualities of the melody (William Sarradet)
"With this remix, I tried to exaggerate the dynamic qualities already present in ∆AIMON's music. Playing with offsetting timing and delays in the mellower parts against harsh distorted strict rhythm as a contrast."(Mike Textbeak)

In a world that we think real, the information overload, the stress, the speed, the bombardment of images and sounds, we have to live in a vortex, hard to stop. Has this be so?

DVD PAL 16:9 | 04’:38” |
from Chicago, USA & Berlin, Germany.
website > http://www.avachorda.de/ & http://www.polymusicworld.com/


Fear of flying is based on a dream of the sky falling into pieces of light.

`I had this dream. Flying in a dark melancholic Sci-Fi-City like Metropolis. All the skyscrapers were full of mirrors but it was too dark for me.` For the video I tried to catch moments between the lines. between the mirror and the closed door. Between all the lines. The Darkness. For all the lights. composition created using the accidental guitar method. | Julika Poly.

& http://monicaezquerra.blogspot.com.es/5-


Basado en el poema de Dámaso Alonso " Dolor ", Hijos de la ira. Diario íntimo, M., Revista de Occidente, 1944, " Elegía " es una reflexión sobre el dolor moral, visualización de un proceso neurálgico, que partiendo de lo físico, como símbolo o " correlativo objetivo " (T.S Eliot ) se trasmite y transforma, dominante, en una una angustia vital y obsesión espiritual, en el irracional malestar de espíritu que llega a modificar las estructuras celulares. Mónica Ezquerra.

DVD PAL 16:9 | 06’:12” |
from Pennsylvania, USA & Amsterdam, Netherlands.

& http://www.marlijnfranken.nl/


The video has been made for a group expo in an ancient (1885) fort near Amsterdam (March 2013). It was on show as a video installation with lots of dead leaves and branches. There is no meaning; there is a feel. A surrealist meeting in the woods. A pond as a mirror. A fish in a tree. On the internet I found Jared’s music. It just fitted. Music and image are 50/50 and form the experience. This is a zero budget collab project.

Maybe artistic expression is just an evolution of play in children who have grown up but keep intact all of its ludic spirit.
Quizá la expresión artística sólo sea una evolución del juego en niños que han crecido pero conservan intacto su espíritu lúdico.

Mind Revolution es un proyecto formado en 2010 por Eugenia Tejón y Ángel González con la intención de explorar nuevos espacios sonoros y de buscar la colaboración e interacción con otras disciplinas artísticas. Desde entonces el grupo ha editado seis discos y realizado diferentes instalaciones, obras de sound-videoArt y performances. Sus trabajos parten de las reflexiones que el grupo mantiene en torno a la literatura y la filosofía y se concretan en las piezas sonoras y visuales que realizan.

14- Michael Chang & Ulf Kristiansen - I feel you, 2012
DVD PAL 4:3 | 05’:16” | from Copenhagen, Denmark & Nesodden, Norway.
website > www.michaelchang.dk
& www.ulfkristiansen.com

"I feel you" is a dreamlike, feverish, poetical, musical horror fantasy.. You may think of the goat as "the storyteller" in the great tradition of the Canterbury Tales, The Decameron and all the romances that have narrators, like Tristan and Isolde. It is s a complex integration of those old traditions, linked to modern times when movies began, and it is brought into the 20th century with my animation. Michael's gentle voice is just the right contrast to the sense of suspense and horror of the damsel being stalked by the villain.
The music is a cover version of a song made by Depeche Mode. The musician is Michael Chang, and we got to know each other through the Exquisite Corpse Video Project curated by Kika Nicolela. Michael Chang is a well established painter and video artist/curator in his homeland Denmark. We started our collaboration in 2009 during a common exhibition at gallery Formverk in Sweden. I needed a musician and vocalist for a video I was working on. Michael Chang has the the talent, the artistic sensitivity and the inclination to help me. I have made 3 films based on his music so far. I am working on a fourth film and I hope to make many more. He makes the music and then I make a video inspired by his music and lyrics.

15- Micah Torrance - The second homo sapiens/In-A-Dada-Da-Vida, 2011 | DVD PAL 4:3 | 06’:45” | from West Bay, Cayman Islands.
website > MARABUcatalogue

Obviously this work is inspired by the 60's/70's psychedelic sound, although my music is called BeBopTwist. It is part of the MARABUcaribe project, a fictive record company with fictive groups of fictive musicians, thus you have the "band's" and the title's name.
MARABUcaribe abducts us into an imaginary parallel universe. It don't open us no exorbitant scenarios of fantastic, unexplored galaxies, but gives us a gap-wide access to a world that is just like ours, only different. It is not the big earth-shattering things that are shown: A megalomanic Doubleyou explodes the towers of Babylon in pieces of the size of a truck, industrial concerns not only pollute the seas in the hunt for oil and poison the drinking water in search of gas. Ecosystems are being cut down to produce chopsticks and the sharks will be extinct for superstition, but MARABUcaribe don't deal with that, just shows us the highlights of a music production without racial barriers in equality and harmony. Tells the story (and the story of the founder, who declined suddenly in the middle of success because he refused to pay the whole madness of the destruction of our livelihood with his taxes), provides us a lot of personalities (which virtually do not age) and gives insight of their production. Before us is evident a "gesamtkunstwerk", a work of cumulative art crafted in over 40 years, consisting of collages, paintings, drawings, plastic arts, photography, music, video and inventing stories as it couldn't be more insufficient. This is not about "Dadaism' or "Neodadaism". It is just Dada.

17- Jonathan Gillie - Escape Velocity, 2013
| DVD PAL 16:9 | 03’:15” | from Nottingham, UK.

website > jongillie.tumblr.com


This animation is a combination of two elements, compositionally it follows on directly from the animation Victoria I. Conceptually I worked with the idea of a transference of energy. Initially it was about the moment of death of a person and progressively came to incorporate elements of Samadhi. In this sense the work represents not the beginning nor end of a transference of energy but simply a single step in a long chain of events. The intitial idea I had about the soundtrack was that at some point I wanted a sense of everything dropping away, the sudden removal any underlying structure. This happens in the first few seconds of the piece, where the intitial rhythmn is replace with an ethereal section, later underpinned by a low musical motif.

Jonathan Gillie working in Moving Image since 1995. Involved with Trampoline Multimedia 1997-2000. One half of av_dv 1999-2004. Currently employed as Senior Technician in Moving Image Dept of NTU. My current practice involves video, animation, computer graphics and sound production.

The cut-up technique is an aleatory literary technique in which a text is cut up and rearranged to create a new text. The concept can be traced to at least the Dadaists of the 1920s, but was popularized in the late 1950s and early 1960s by writer William S. Burroughs, and has since been used in a wide variety of contexts.

| DVD PAL 16:9 | 05’:16” | from Arcata, USA & La Felguera, Spain.

website > soundcloud.com/idtal & noterustas.blogspot

The coupling without aggression, of the human being and nature. An ecological criticism through the way in which things should be.

Skye Speciale left the music scene at this time until his reappearance in 2009 where he resurfaced in his current musical form known now as IDTAL /InDusTreeAlLace and thus started his new journey into music from a fresh perspective and with it a rather unique self creationist style of music that blends many differently sounds from both the organic world around us and the more far out and abstract electronic sounds that Skye likes to use and incorporate into his new and fresh concept of music.

01- Juan Carlos Sánchez Duque - LOOP MY KISS, 2008
DVD PAL 16:9 | 05’:40” | from Ciudad Real, Spain.
website > www.duqueart.com

Loop my kiss es una videoinstalación que se refiere a los clásicos cinematográficos. El video a partir del film “El beso del asesino” (1955) dirigido por Stanley Kubrick, representa algo más que el trasfondo de la imagen. La historia es diseccionada, extrayendo algunos fragmentos y después son reordenados y modelados. La dimensión temporal se comprime y reordena en una experiencia temporal recortada.
Este trabajo indaga en sucesos cuyo origen y desenlace se desconocen, recurriendo a elementos de acción extrapolados y mostrados simultáneamente. La repetición de actos, y sus variaciones, centra la atención y eleva la importancia, incluso, de secuencias de menor consideración. En otras secuencias, este hecho acrecienta el sentimiento ambiguo y de equívoco.
