Loose documentation of the Zephyr performance that took place at Cinecycle in Toronto on August 30th 2013.
Zephyr is a Toronto-based performance art duo consisting of filmmaker Sylvain Chaussee and composer Adrian Cook. Through this collaboration they have been exploring the relationship between their mediums. Sound and image, rhythm and movement, colour and tone, cause and effect, are all combined seamlessly within the live performance.
Chaussee's imagery is created through extensive manipulation of 16mm film, involving processing, printing and projecting. Through composition and ample improvisation, Cook builds sonic atmospheres by carefully layering timbres, tones, and textures.
Initially a dialogue is created between the two mediums, in which repetition becomes a crucial element contributing to the alteration of the senses. Both film and sound loops provide the basis for their performances, upon which they develop a synchronous relationship between building and deconstructing the cinematic experience.
