Loss 6.5 – Lies…
(see fabricationdebruit.com/loss for more information)
Loss 6.5 is the penultimate section of Loss 6. She is perhaps more broken than before. It is the story a descent, I am just not sure what into. Whilst the piece is called ‘Lies…’what drives it forward is the cascading sense of improvisation and being entirely out of control.
The film was shot in New York, London, Los Angeles, New Orleans and Hamburg over a 4 year period, with the majority of sequences shot as improvised video pieces, not particularly for this project or for Loss 6.5.
The music features an amazing improvised violin section by a great artists I met on Fiverr, Hannah K Watson. Check her work out at fiverr.com/phunkphiddler66. The music started as free-form improvisation using a violin bow on the guitar, of which a small section remains in the darker, fractured undercarriage of the second movement.
And as with all the pieces so far, the voice was provided by Lynx. There are two versions of this pieces Version 1 is called ‘Lies…’ and version 2 is called ‘lies… (le menteur)’. Version 1 was Lynx’s first improvised take and Version 2 is the final take (with a slightly different script). I love both interpretations, so you download them from Soundcloud (soundcloud.com/djringfinger) and make up your own mind as to which version works for you. It is version 1 that appears in the video. For me, I loved the improvised feel of it as it worked with the improvised violin and music so incredibly well.
