total length: 30 minutes
originally comissioned as a live performance for the randomsystem festival in Norway, night for day ended up as a half hour audiovisual composition in 13 parts. It is based on material shot and recorded in Tokyo, which through intense hours of improvisation and meticulous editing has been developed into something which can be described as expressionistic impressions from an urban reality, 13 audiovisual poems assembled into a surreal whole.
Night for day is a collaboration between video artist HC Gilje and the noise duo Jazzkammer, who have toured twice together, in Europe and Japan, and also collaborated on Twinn, a piece with Gilje´s dance company Kreutzerkompani.
It is part of the dvd Cityscapes, released on paris-label lowave in 2005, which also contains HKmark1, Shiva and Crossings.
