Labyrinths is a software suite that acts as a platform for musicians and film-makers to structure, then perform, hypertextual works of film in real-time. Drawing on the modernist form of multi-linear narration, it aims to bridge the gap between online hypertexts (such as the world wide web) and live video performance.
To demonstrate the software, I have created an animated film entitled "Aidy's Girl Is A Machine." This is based on the music of Hyperdub recording artist Darkstar. Directed alongside Darkstar, the film explores the emotional relationship between two machinic beings. Written in four chapters, and divided into over 300 individual animations, Aidy's Girl Is A Machine encapsulates a simple one-dimensional story but, taking place within the mind of the protagonist, is fragmented and redrawn through memory and time.
