1. At Land (1944) is a 15-minute silent experimental film written, directed by, and starring Maya Deren. It has a dream-like narrative in which a woman, played by Deren, is washed up on a beach and goes on a strange journey encountering other people and other versions of herself. Deren once said that the film is about the struggle to maintain one's personal identity.

    The composer John Cage and the poet and film critic Parker Tyler were involved in making the film, and appear in the film, which was shot at Amagansett, Long Island.

    Empusae created a genuine soundtrack to accompany this silent film. The music should be seen as an experiment to create a soundtrack inspired purely by the images and visual atmospheres.

  2. There’s all these amazing, complex, crucial organs in the body. The appendix is surplus to requirements, worse than useless.
    It was originally there to repopulate the gut with good bacteria, but in “hygienic” societies there’s nothing much for it to do...

  3. Ghost Peloton has been nominated for a Bike Design Award. You can rate the work at http://bit.ly/1p1acI0.

    Created for the grand depart of the Tour de France 2014 from Yorkshire, Ghost Peloton fuses performance cycling with athletic choreography performed by Phoenix Dance Theatre’s dancers, and the varied landscapes of race route. Each rider, bike and performer was illuminated using NVA’s bespoke LED light suit, which can instantaneously change colour, flash-rate and luminosity. The rhythm of movement from the choreographed actions of massed participants becomes a source of creativity in itself, extending perception of the immediate setting.

    It’s epic public art, operating at the grandest scale, where physical surroundings become an open canvas carrying a new visual language, expressing mood and movement, comprised of form, colour and line.

    Ghost Peloton is an ambitious collaboration between NVA and Phoenix Dance Theatre, in partnership with Sustrans, created for Yorkshire Festival 2014. Soundtrack by Frame Missing: framemissing.bandcamp.com/
