subliminalTV is an ongoing project based primarily around live audiovisual performance with - mostly - original sound and video. I have developed my own software, AViator, which allows me to link audio and video (and other things) together in odd ways, and all live. With subliminalTV I'm trying to do something very different to most DJ/VJ sets I've seen - I'm deliberately avoiding flashy 3D visualisations etc. and going for a very lo-fi, ancient kind of look. I'm also using some very homemade and analogue techniques and a deliberately unlikely range of source material. My influences haven't been anything recent, but rather things like surreal 1920s cinema and - a very direct influence - Global Groove, Nam June Paik's amazing 'global village' collage from the 70s. The music is intentionally all over the place stylistically, with elements of my experimental electroacoustic background combining with plundered samples and strange (or just plain wrong) genre combinations.
NOTE - these are contiguous sections of a single performance. So they're best watched in sequence (in my opinion), and some clips start and stop rather abruptly!
I think this is up your alley - it's the latest music video from experimental electronic artist Blocktreat - a kaleidoscopic journey of Lite-Brights, and other shimmery fun things. Film made by Nikolas Tsonis.
If you enjoy it I hope you'll share it. Thanks Subliminal!
