Video Etudes: Plotless visual ideas set to friend's music.
Calabi Yau (2004-2008) was easily the best band in Charlotte since 2000. 'Dutch Accent' was the closer of their showcase at the NoDa Film Festival which also sported unreal re-scorings of Man Ray's Starfish, La Ballet Mechanique and Chris Welsby's Windmill III.
Filmed in B&W raw like a live document and then assembled fragments into an audience-view of a dream in rondo, reacting with excitement to the music.
I'm not happy with the way the movement is captured but I put this one (of two) up so a great band would have an online marker. They have so few.
Available on DVD (with an even better Calabi Yau film!) for screenings or personal viewing.
