This year's titles for FOTB were created by Nando Costa through the use of macro motion pictures and materials with magnetic properties.
The choice of materials was driven by the desire to graphically represent the concepts of attraction and repulsion. The idea that graphic artists of all sorts attend events such as FOTB because they are inspired and therefore attracted to each other's work, while at the same time often competing in the same fields as peers, which represents the repulsion factor.
Background: We collaborated with Weareseventeen on both this Strange Arrangements film and the "behind the scenes" which was created and to be shown at London's onedotzero festival in 2010. Our role was to creating the sound and music for the film. Which is based on a series of moving sculptures based on the surrealists approach to art.
How we did it: We wanted something magical to happen on this film as the music score is so deeply rich and the piano and string timbre so immense the sound design score was FREE to get wild and out there who fucking cared if it matched. The visuals are out of this world so again our approach was lets go to the next level with this and record everything we see in the film we MUST record and put into the music and sound design. Chris focussed on creating a stranger piece of works, and we had just come back from recording guns so had lots of unusual timbres to play with. Our art and craft of recording is evident in the richness of the sounds. We used microphones which are ultra small so we could get close to our subject matter, this was very important to us to have close mike sounds. DPA 4060 were our choice.
