Video by Raquel Meyers
Music by Tubular Balls
The collaboration between Tubular Balls and Raquel Meyers started in 2008 which the making of a video for the piece “The Emperor’s Snuff Box”, which has been shown at several festivals and galleries throughout Europe: ‘49cm’ Mikrogalleriet / Copenhagen (DN), Square Eyes Festival (Arnhem, Netherlands), Lucas Carrieri Art Gallery, VIDEOKILLS #4 (Berlin), and is part of the “Intermerz” selection shown in Lev Festival (Gijon, SPA) and Territorios Digitales 2009 (Sevilla, SPA).
This was my art school MFA graduate thesis project at Cal Arts, 1985 (experimental animation.) It is the first attempt at a mostly Strata Cut movie. Excellent Soundtrack by Drew Neumann.
The compression is lousy because strata cut changes everything on literally every frame, and causes havoc with compression algorithms. I may post five sections of this (five days of the week) at much higher bit rate later this month or this year.
