NOT STILL ART 2007 PROGRAM:
"Flood Water (bio)graphy" 3:17
Tammy Renée Brackett video and music
"Created in response to the geographical movement of families caused by hurricane Katrina. Genetic information faces turbulence as the body is pulled and submerged by the flow of floodwater."
"Berlin Skin" 4:06
Kim Collmer video and animation
Petra Klusmeyer music
"Animating the layers of a city, memory is encoded into its walls as the continual patter of urban energy pushes us forward in time. The animation is meant to create a physical connection between the viewer and Berlin, cloaking them in the 'skin' of another location."
<> "Awen" 9:30
Matt Costanza director
Michaela Eremiasova music composer
Kelly Ferris choreography
A collage homage to eros. A single neo-classical dancer is time delayed, multiplied and rearranged in space - in front of an animated mosaic. The music and the mosaic are remniscent of Byzantine sites and sounds still lingering in Eastern Europe.
"Density 1" 4:00
Patrick Doan a.k.a. DEFASTEN video and sound
Tim Hecker "Balkenize You" music sample, courtesy Alien8 Recordings
"A sensory video about displacement, time, and space....commenting on the ephemoral nature of long term memoroy, and how it's representations are distorted through a person's environment, experience, and temperament."
Brian Evans animation
Time Arts music
"Another edition to the collection of impeccable 2:15 animations by Evans. They are simple, elegant and sophisticated."
Karen Aqua & Ken Field directors
Karen Aqua animation
Ken Field music
Extraordinary chamber music is punctuated by lively animation.
Harvey Goldman animation
James Bohn music
"A study and investigation of the visual and sonic elements of cadence, meter, oscillation, palpitation, pressure, and pulsation. The piece represents an attempt to amalgamate, provoke and energize abstract imagery with abstract sound."
"The Brown Paper Bag" 1:11
Phillip Guthrie video and animation
"An exploration between drawing and motion graphics, between realistic and abstract: 'an interesting piece'. "
"Navigating the Pearl System" 2:50
Frank Hartnett video and sound
Gyrating through subterranean sounds and images, the point of view is not you but perhaps a whale or a cyborg?
Samantha Krukowski video
Bruce Pennycook sound
The ordinary becomes extraordinary - the real becomes unreal. Emerge yourself into what an egg is - a potent universe unto itself ...
"Crazy Woman" 4:10
Kyunghwa Lee image and animation and sound
"I just want to know what a crazy person's point of view makes possible. Being a crazy woman to me has always meant finding the way to be myself. "
Justin Lincoln images
Ben Owen sound
Tuned out and in --- tripping in Osaka....
"Runa's Spell" 3:30
Stephanie Maxwell animation
Michaela Eremiasova music composer
The music creates a "spiritual sense of journey through the fractional evocation of Egyptian folk song." The "sonorous texture of trembling and contorted sound images" is visualized by sensual and abstract images - and "pixillation of live creatures"!
"White Noise" 9:45
Dennis Miller image, animation, music composition
The latest iteration in Miller's ouvre is more organic than ever. Though abstract, the hyper-realistic forms and spatial sound convince you of their innateness.
Alex Potts light painting and music
"A poem for your optical mind.....
a light painting for your ears....
a song for the spirits who cross the luminous void:
Oh say can you see?"
"Seek Assistance" 3:04
Vishal Shah director, video
Adam Stansbie sound
Seb Humphrey & Lewis Campbell performances
"A personal myth projected as noise and interference which intensifies with intrigue and mystery."
Kyle Silfer a.k.a. SIGNAL DECAY video / music
"In-Gameboy-camera experimentation with pixilation, video feedback and stop-motion."
"Het Huis" 8:50
Jan Suschitzky director
Neil Thornock music from "pastorogenesic"
" The House is made of pieces of memories of a place I knew, where once was this house. It's a search or almost a quest to connect the past to here and now. What happened?"
"Another Kind of Blues" 5:05
Emile "Dr. T" Tobenfeld video
The Immersions music
Dr. T, an inveterate performer and inventor of one of the best music improvising softwares ever (for the Atari, no less) , layers and distorts images upon images - in a spontaneous frenzy.
Tanja Vujinovic image and sound
"Discrete events in noisy domains are the general framework of various micro-projects about static, communication noise, its boundaries and atmospheric drifting into the realms of signals and their emitters. They deal with the random locations of info-dust."
All quotes are the artists' statements.
