Sometimes the online world reveals unsuspected parallel dimensions. This is an unknown restyle of Neural independently (and secretly as we never knew about it) made by NY-based Motion and Graphic Designer, Clarke Blackham. Very nicely made, perhaps only a bit glossier for the magazine’s line, it testifies once more how even your most familiar outcomes can have another life somewhere else.
dvd – Shitkatapult
Sidereal spaces, trembling emissions, crooked views of natural spaces and industrial places, strange beings and a human figure, halfway through the monk and the shaman. Actually electronic sounds, made out of extremely dilated drones, machinic frequencies and noise roughness, fruit of ChrisDouglas’ (aka O.S.T.) manipulative practices, (he’s also known as Dalglish, Rook Valard and Rook Vallade). This is a weird and ambitious project built by Berlin-based Transforma video collective, that combines visual cuts, borrowing them from vjing techniques with an uncommon narrative vocation. The work is developed focusing on an errant aesthetic that draws closer to the spectacular outcomes of the most deviated theater experiments. A mystery trip, steeped in organic and synthetic matter (or as the post-avant garde theatre would have said: ‘natural’ and ‘artificial’), with sudden scale and attention shifts, and made out of performative skills in putting on sets and stages. So there’s a moulding process summing design, cinema, photography, music and performing art skills in synchronized actions with an actual common digital forms base. To better understand this process it’s worth to check the dvd extra, especially ‘Making Of Synken’ and ‘Symul’.
