        • ZIM NGQAWANA in Unyazi of the Bushveld


          from African Noise Foundation Added

          Kaganof’s experimental documentary film, Unyazi Of The Bushveld, which opened Pop Shield is a case in point. Essentially a document of Africa’s first international festival of electronic music held in Jo’burg in 2005, the film functions as one of Stockhausen’s “time bombs”: a kind of time machine that blasts open a threshold between different times and spaces to map out a strange new world where African and Western elements of acoustic, electronic and mechanical music sit side by side. “Unyazi,” as organiser Nathaniel Stern explains in the doccie, “is a Zulu term for lightning. With quite spiritual connotations, you know there is no Zulu or Southern African phrase that’s non-English for electricity or electronic so when he wanted to say something in an indigenous language having to do with electronic music unyazi was the best he could come up with.” Here we’re lost in translation, flung into a “holey space” constructed out of thresholds between worlds, a cinematic rabbit warren where lightning is harnessed as electricity, men merge with machines and the ghost of Sid Vicious is resurrected through a virtual collaboration between Karlheinz Stockhausen and Ladysmith Black Mambazo channelled by South Africa’s infamous Kalahari Surfer, Warrick Sony. Here preconceptions and definitions fall by the wayside as American composer George Lewis breathes life into his computer, while South African jazz man Zim Ngqawana blows the circuit boards inside his saxophone. Of course, the message is also in the medium and Unyazi is shot in Kaganof’s trademark digital handheld style, edited with lighting speed jumps and punctuated by scenes washed in culturally taboo special effects filters. Images are superimposed, frames resurrect and linger like lost spirits, the camera spins and twists, the screen splits and fractals erupt from turntables. This “misuse” of technology creates another friction, a powerful alchemic tension between the seeming rawness of the technique and the simultaneous possibility of escape into another and altogether more beautiful world that it offers. But don’t be too en-tranced by Kaganof’s aesthetic seductions. See, for all its clever tricks and digi-ticks, Unyazi never takes itself too seriously. In this sense, the film functions as another kind of “time bomb”: not a travel machine but a ticking trap – a sly device wired to unleash a sneaky slap, like a surprise pie in the face that simultaneously assaults us and unmasks us, leaving us at once covered in fluffy white cream and awkwardly stripped bare.

            On Monday the 9th of June 2014, we had a special evening dinner in The Guesthouse in honor of American sound artist and pioneer of listening Pauline Oliveros. She was such a good sport that she joined in for the after food entertainment, and volunteered to read out one of her compositions. This is just an extract of a performance that went over an hour long, a truly a magical evening.

                      from jen barrows Added

                      In 1970, 65 artists participated in a project called Art in the Mind curated by Athena Spear (Tacha) and published at Oberlin College. An early document of conceptual gestures, the catalog was the exhibition. In 2013, Ann Torke & Nanette Yannuzzi co-curated an online exhibition to be included as part of the 25th year anniversary of the Cleveland Performance Art Festival (PAF) 1988-99, Present and Accounted. um·brel·la /ˌəm-ˈbrelə/ was created as a response to an exchange between John Baldessari and Pauline Oliveros in the Art in the Mind catalog.
