Music by Alterity Problem (Alexander Moskos and Joel Taylor)
Video by Emily Pelstring
This homage to 1970s video art explores how the electronic manipulation of the video signal can create a choreocinema for body and machine. Choreographic patterns melding retro moves with a minimalist aesthetic participate in a jagged, pulsing duet with the danceable beats and noisy textures of the track “Doing My Rounds, Checking Some Rounds” by Alterity Problem. Effects were created in real-time with a raster-scan device built by Nam June Paik and Shuya Abe, accessed during a residency at the Experimental TV Center in upstate New York.
