sadescription A Diamond Forms Under Pressure
6mn12   color   stereo   2008   Republic of Ireland
by Ocusonic
"A Diamond Forms Under Pressure" is an anomaly existing somewhere between experimental film and music video, computer animation/ programming, science and art. An improvised electronic soundtrack drives proprietary software, which analyses the audios's frequency content and generates a cogent synchronous image in real-time. Frequencies push and pull against each other stabilising or agitating the central image

From the reflection of a gesture to the shadow of another one ? From the Lilliputian viewpoint, ordinary things are getting rougher, less pastoral ? The hard colorings of the picture, the soundtrack made of lyric singing and warped natural sounds superimposed, increase the unease.

sadescription Black's Back
12mn   color & b/w   stereo   2009   France

"Black's Back" is a subjective vision about a figurative struggle between a White imaginary (Hollywood, Disney) and the Black revendications in the fifties, sixties and seventies in USA. This movie is a tribute to the Black Revolution and a sad testimony about misery and injustice from capitalist governments dispite the Black Panther Party's warnings.

A kaleidoscopic reverie recorded over a period of five years in various urban milieus. An excavation of the concept of montage : small moments public and private brush up against each other, creating a charged tapestry of the immediate. Inside and outside, motion and stasis, home and travel, light and dark : a series of antimonies struggle to be heard and seen.

A graphic and musical short film that speaks to our senses. A short film that is a tribute to Joachim Gatti’s Eye and to incessant struggles that we must lead. A short film that shouts : don’t give up ! A long cry against violence and injustice.

This is a study about the vanishing of an image."dead SEEquences" is composed of 3775 frames. Working frame by frame, we find that nothing happens inside each single image, but all pass between the frames, in the invisible gap that separe one by others. The film is here, but there isn't anything to see, the most important remain invisible and uncertain. There is no truth to discover. The truth is always elsewhere.

As the objects/representations he creates combine and develop a narrative, the fast alternation of images on the screen imbricate and shape images/apparitions that only the “lanterna magica” of cinema and the magic of editing allow. Magica means enchantment.

This film is born from the discover of 4 short film footage in the street (real found footage !) showing : 1. a tourist with a photo camera sit on the ground 2. a small rowing boat go away 3. a couple come down from a staircase 4. a gun shooting from an old, unknown western film. The film protagonist is a voice without a body searching your organic identity between the images. The voice try to find a link between the 4 film footage, but this is extremely difficult, and perhaps useless. The film pictures are : the four real found footage films ; home movies pictures ; documentary pictures in public domain (war films, naturalistic-scientific film, and a film about the day after the rise of Berlin wall); original shooting.

"the catch" consists of a single minute-long close-up shot of a pair of hands combing through hair. The image is beautiful, yet the perspective is uncomfortably close. In addition, the delicate hand movements are juxtaposed with escalating audio and, eventually, a quietly violent act. The audio overdramatizes this act leaving the viewer to contend with her perception of cinematic conventions.

sadescription The MBC @ The Office
3mn07   color   stereo   2008   USA
by Sarah Buckius & Melanie Manos
In this video, Manos and Buckius find themselves surrounded by four tables on which run ten printers. Manos and Buckius frantically zoom around the confined space on their rolling chairs in an attempt to retrieve and stack the papers endlessly being processed through the printers. The paperwork just never seems to end, as they race against the clock and an unknown deadline ! The MBC embraces purposelessness ! Our aim is to energize a space with our activities, and suggest new interpretations for existing structures both in the social/political and environmental/architectural sense. Formalist aesthetics...patterned yet spontaneous movement...vibrant colors and actions…we are Jacques Tati meets DEVO. Working as a team, we interact physically with everyday objects and technological devices by using them to perform unconventional, bizarre and highly non- productive tasks. The work proposes that everyday objects and technologies might be reinterpreted in absurd, playful, and strange ways, and that the nature of productivity and function be re-examined. This work questions levels of authority and control : are we in control of technology, our immediate environment, and institutional systems, or is the reverse true ? Our work has included photography, mediated performances (live-feed to video monitor or projector), live performance with projections, videos, video installation with projections, and video installation with sculpture. The MBC is particularly interested in spaces that offer a potential for site-specific work, and we are often drawn to irregular and notably compartmental areas or rooms. We work specifically to the confines of a space, and each space becomes heterotopic through the experience.

George Ives, father of the great American composer Charles Ives, was a small-town bandleader with big ideas about music and sound. For example, he would have several bands march toward each other from opposite ends of town, playing a different tune in a different key. George enjoyed the clashing sounds grow in intensity as the bands got closer. I think he would enjoy this tribute to his musical curiosity.

sadescription Wound Footage
6mn06   color   stereo   2009   Germany
by Thorsten Fleisch
Source material is a found footage super 8 film. The visual carrier was attacked in a multitude of ways. It was scratched, cut open and violated. I captured an attempt to screen it. There it burned and was destroyed by the projector. Sorry little film. With the video footage I provoked the encoding. As a result some pixels were dislocated. In the end I reshot the film from the monitor while I somehow angered the cables that connect the monitor with my computer. That all may sound very negative and destructive to you dear reader but the goal was an almost humanist one: Unification of the digital with the anologue world. They seem so far apart and yet they aren't. By exposing every material's weaknesses and injuries it was made one. It's all visual sensations in the end. Rita Hayworth grindily sings along.

Unique static shot, lighted by a high-key maximum, overexposes a person sat and immobile. Only the breathing of subject assures that they view well a video, the time when lasts of the sonore band. The film ends by one low-key, instant when the character leaves and puts the searchlight out.

sadescription « PATRIE »
1mn21   color   stereo   2009   France
by Flo Arrieu
A plan unique sequence plays on acceleration and a slowing down in link with the soundtrack. The importance of the visible and of the hiding is illustrated by fleeting pictures of vegetables, of wire nettings, of houses or road panels. These are filmed frontalement. The soundtrack is a collage of several film clips in voice-over.

Static shot filmed by the interieur of a car. A lorry charged with straw, a road, nothing if it is not the question setting of a voice-over.
