!! OMG, dust-it-off honey: Daniel Franke’s ‘Unnamed Soundsculpture’ !!


The dancer was set the task of moving in reaction to the score of Machinenfabriek’s ‘Kreukeltape’, as three ‘Kinect’ depth cameras, captured a separate set of motion data points, which were then compiled to create a 22’000 node 3-dimensional point-cloud.
Taking out the images of the dancer’s body leaves only the sense of movement, ie. the dance, not the dancer; and as the data points fall away, you are given the impression that what you are watching is transient, and impermanent as though each node creates its fleeting movement before being won-over by gravity.
Now I know what drag queens mean when they say another has dusty knees…this girl, she AAAAALL DUSTY!

!! OMG, Slow-mo Promo: Choir of Young Believers’ ‘Paralyze’ !!


Directed by Anders Malmberg, and illustrated by Signe Lupnov, this is the first release off Danish band Choir of Young Believers’ second album ‘Rhine Gold’, and is their music video debut.
Shot in a disused slaughterhouse in Copenhagen, and long-as-hell in that sort of Pink Floyd epic musical odyssey kind of way, Malmberg looked to first tame the lengthy track before he could begin to create “the visual storyline, which was very much a search for timeless images, the painterly, the film as a sculptural idea and long, precise and transcendent shots.”
Girl concentrate!

!! OMG, Viva vacuum!: Clara Cullen’s ‘Airtight’ !!


I’m familiar with Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud’s work from their 2009 piece ‘Sylphides’ [see below] where they danced inside black body-bags scored by The Spice Girl’s tear-inducing track ‘Viva Forever’.
I know! Made of genius!
Filmmaker Clara Cullen who has worked under Werner Herzog and Spike Lee, has created this short film of fragments of Bengolea and Chaignaud’s works plus some new material from their La Ménagerie residency in Paris.

FYI, they also have a piece entitled ‘Altered Natives’ Say Yes to Another Excess-Twerk’. This -I’m thinking- is a great weekend mantra!
