1. Video Etudes: Plotless visual exercises set to friends music.

    A grand finale from their 'Relapse' album.
    The title says enough.

    The flicker online translates unexpectedly wavvy & interlaced. (but not so bad)

    Available on DVD for screenings or personal viewing.

  3. Video Etudes: Plotless visual ideas set to friend's music.

    Calabi Yau (2004-2008) was easily the best band in Charlotte since 2000. 'Dutch Accent' was the closer of their showcase at the NoDa Film Festival which also sported unreal re-scorings of Man Ray's Starfish, La Ballet Mechanique and Chris Welsby's Windmill III.

    Filmed in B&W raw like a live document and then assembled fragments into an audience-view of a dream in rondo, reacting with excitement to the music.

    I'm not happy with the way the movement is captured but I put this one (of two) up so a great band would have an online marker. They have so few.

    Available on DVD (with an even better Calabi Yau film!) for screenings or personal viewing.

  5. Video Etudes: Plotless visual exercises set to friends music.

    Nataraja is Travis Shelton, one of the great journeyman guitar players I know.

    Close to betraying the description of plotless. The music was asking for it, unconscious desire...

    This requires some patience. Don't bother with this one if you're info-surfing.

    Okay (but still has annoying movement glitches) on fullscreen -- for the sake of immersing into it.
