USED UNIVERSE "Hop To" featuring ENIAC´s 8-bit composition
This is a hommage to Nintendo music video I made for the song HOp TO which is one song in a series of 8-Bit music compositions created by NYC-based musician ENIAC ( you can download them all for free HERE: http://www.jamendo.com/en/album/71289
I have been trying various methods to imitate the motion color field work of Jeremy Blake (R.I.P.) because I really love them.
Thus far I've had the most sucesss in utilizing abrupt, inexplicable and unforeseen technical glitches I've encountered while using digital media.
I.E. this video was created entirely from Michael Jackson's documentary "THIS IS IT".

In relation to the novel Malone Dies by Samuel Beckett, "I shall soon be quite dead at last in spite of all" is a choreography of compulsive actions and words, of inertia, and of exhaustion. Thought and action being uncorrelated, the mind and the body move at different speeds, or rather the mind and the body move in alternate directions, or rather the body is at rest and the mind is in motion. Or the body is at rest in space but in constant internal motion while the mind gawks at the body. The essential shape is the circle, or perhaps the line; both reduce to a point. The essential image is a man lying on his deathbed via a man riding a bicycle. "If I had the use of my body, I would throw it out of the window."
