TRT 15:44minFour channel analogue video/ sound composition. Digitized for projection/ playback.
This four channel work for sound and video originates from footage taken with hand wound 16mm Bolex in the Mohave Desert in California. The footage was transferred to analog video signal wher eit was put though a Dave Jones Colorizer that was patched to a Serge Synthesizer. Also used was Naim June Paik's Wobbulator that was again patched into the synthesizer.
The composition elicits a kind of endless sci fi trailer. The Mohave desert acts as alien terrain, with sounds from the Serge, pushing one to the outer limits. The four video channels become four windows to a frenetic world of varying movement and perspective. The sound, directly linked to the video, is both the environmental buzz that fills the landscape, as it is the directing pulse that pushes the viewer between each plane.
