    Sinopsis / Synopsis:

    Elephants' test es un test, una prueba, un experimento practicado a elefantes. También es una apropiación fílmica, un found footage manipulado, despintado con lejía y rascado. Son dos tests en uno: el primero realizado por una expedición francesa en la selva africana, para descubrir los comportamientos de una manada de elefantes; el segundo realizado por uno mismo a partir de ese material documental en super 8.

    Elephants' Test is a test, an experiment performed to elephants. It is also a cinematic appropriation, a manipulated found footage, bleach faded and scratched. Two tests in one: the first one was carried out by a French expedition in the African jungle to discover the behavior of a herd of elephants, the second one was self-made from super 8 documentary material.

    Reseña:
    "Una de estas películas en la frontera entre lo figurativo y lo abstracto es Elephants’ Test, de Albert Alcoz (2005). Alcoz partió de una bobina de super8 adquirida en una tienda de fotografía que contenía un documental francés silente de los años 70, filmado en lo que parece la sabana africana durante una expedición o un safari, y que se inicia con un plano de un grupo de monos pero que después se centra hasta el final en una manada de elefantes y en las personas que los estudian o les dan caza desde un jeep. Esta película, ya de por sí dañada por el paso del tiempo, ha sido manipulada, despintada, rascada y tratada con lejía con la intención de hacer desaparecer, de manera total o parcial, algunas de sus imágenes. La lejía trastoca los colores originales y, en ocasiones, arranca completamente la emulsión dejando el celuloide transparente (es decir, blanco en su proyección), mientras que las líneas rascadas con una pluma, que dejan un trazo amarillo e irregular, crean ritmos visuales, perfilan algún elemento concreto (como los colmillos de los elefantes) o hacen desaparecer los fondos para aislar y resaltar alguna figura en particular".

  2. Mylicon/en
    Tien Yen is one of a series of "Postcards from Viet Nam"

    What is left of the image of Viet Nam 30 years after war victory?
    What kind of amnesia does this country -a symbol of a revolution against the American empire- now represent in the West World?
    Not much has been said about Viet Nam in the recurrence of this anniversary. Viet Nam has become out of focus, complex and contradictory.
    In these loops we have been working on the edges of the image and memory of a residual exoticism. Exoticism, diversity, but also flux and movement...
    Postcards from Viet Nam is a Mylicon/En work in progress, dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the most media exposed and filmed war of all times.
    Postcards are slightly varying loops that freeze up gestures and movements, proceeding by minimal shifts. Everything is repeated endlessly and nearly becomes abstract.

    Every postcard is named after a village lost in the north country forests, close to China, where it is easy to find in the headvillage's hut medals of war displayed next to Ho Chi Minh pictures.
    "This is not a film on Viet Nam this is Viet Nam" said Francis Ford Coppola, the director of "Apocalypse Now", about the film that according to critics and intellectuals represents the end of history and the beginning of the "Society of the Spectacle".
    Everyone knows about Viet Nam, Saigon, the Red River and the Mekong, Viet Congs -Charlie- and Ho Chi Minh/uncle Ho.

    Viet Nam has left the realms of history and geography to get into people's imaginary.
    Vietnam that still bears the signs of horror, Vietnam that proudly claims victory, Vietnam of French-speaking elders, Vietnam that has never lived in peace for long in its history, Vietnam that has defeated Gengis Khan.
    It is easy today to find in Saigon or Hanoi an "Apocalypse Now Bar".

  3. Audio visual composition made from short textural video fragments and audio snippets from Ezra's album P4.
    Digital Album is available here:
    etherkreet.bandcamp.com/album/p4
    Cd version is upcoming.
    It's a pretty hefty download, as I also added the video in high quality.
    This streaming version is quite rough looking the say the least.

  4. The Flood Ensemble:
    Erik Kirton (acoustics) - Maya von der Nebel (visuals)

    Conceived as a metaphorical voyage, Act I, Contemplating the Sublime, is a thought evoking and poetic introduction to the work we create, as The Flood Ensemble. It's the first step in a longer journey; a journey intended to be rich in emotion and texture, and one that will hopefully reflect the spirit, with which it was created.

    All material was recorded originally, and remains property of the respective artists.

  5. Le cytoplasme
    comprend tout ce qui est
    contenu à l'intérieur du volume
    délimité par la membrane cytoplasmique
    à l'exception du noyau
    et de certains organites.
    C’est un milieu complexe,
    organisé et dynamique.
    Il peut être considéré en première
    approche comme un milieu semi fluide
    (ou gel) à base d'eau,
    contenant plusieurs milliers de type moléculaires différents et compartimenté par de nombreuses membranes internes.
