02.03.2011 5 Days Off - Melkweg Amsterdam
Presented as one of the special events of the 5 Days Off festival in 2011 this show included a series of videos by Dutch experimental filmmaker Henri Platt with a new score by electronic music producer TOKTEK.
Trained as a fine artist, Tom Verbruggen (TOKTEK), had no formal training in electronics. However, TOKTEK’s exploration of electronic music started early on, through the use of computers, handmade machines and electronic devices. His work is best witnessed live, where the communicative relationship between humans and machines is playfully explored through creative sound manipulations and unpredictable compositions.
Fragments Of Decay | Dir. Henry Plaat | NL | 1983 | 12min
Fragments of Decay, architectural shots of abandoned buildings, walls, the kind that appear in the nether landscapes of Cocteau’s Orpheus (1949), but emptied, worn, eroded, silent, pensive and wise.
Presented in collaboration with the EYE Film Institute.
