12/04/13 - Goethe Institute Amsterdam
Three videos by artist Sebastian Diaz Morales screened with a new soundtrack performed live by:
Raphael Vanoli (DE/F) guitar & Mark Morse (US) guitar.
Raphael Vanoli is one half of Amsterdam indie rock darlings Knalpot . Vanoli's solo shows have been hosted by relevant jazz festivals and venues such as Muziekgebouw aan't Ij and Northsea Jazz.
Mark Morse is a respected guitarist, arranger/assembler, sound editor and dj (under the name Morsanek). Vanoli and Morse have performed together as part of the experimental electric guitar quintet The Family Tapes. This is the first time they will play as a duo.
SEBASTIAN DIAZ MORALES
Sebastian Diaz Morales works can be described as filmic narratives embracing stories that sometimes resemble science fiction, sometimes with certain catastrophic overtones, and in which there is an ever-present common denominator of a minimalist narrative style.
His work encompasses the most contemporary and creative reportage, epic narrative, documentaries, short auteur films, filmic essays, and indeed an undeniable touch of poetry that cause his videos to oscillate between reality and fiction, always filtered through the artist's creative subjectivism.
His oeuvre resists attempts to be fixed by categorising definitions; it is not merely film, not solely art, it is documentary on occasion but never simply illustrative.
