Theater Games and Taming the Mind Ox - Two works by Stephen Nachmanovitch

Categories: [New Acquisition] 










excerpt from the DVD materials:

Theater Games

"In June of 2005 I taught a workshop called "Gibberish, the Universal Language" in Seattle, as part of Unexpected Productions' Seattle International Festival of Improv. When several months later, the video arrived, I was inspired to play with this material and make an art piece of it. I took the 12 hours of video and sped them up to 10 minutes, rendered the fuzzy outlines into lollipop colors, and then added a score of electronic string music."

Taming the Mind Ox

"I composed an earlier version of Taming the Mind Ox in 1985 for a retrospective of my visual music pieces at the UCLA music department. That piece required two slide projectors, a dissolve unit and a multitrack reel-to-reel tape. Twenty years later, this subject is still compelling to me, and I wanted a fresh approach. This is a new version with new music, for violin and viola. The video is composed directly on the computer. The pictures [in this film] represent stages on the path of a spiritual journey to the mastery of one's mind-heart (shin). At the beginning, the young man is lost, looking everywhere for the essence of this mind-heart, and suddenly he finds himself chasing and wrestling with a wild ox or bull. Taming that wild, irrational, powerful creature, becoming one with it-- changing and being changed-- finding a still point in the midst of the hubbub of life-- is a lifelong effort and adventure."

Slither - A stunning marriage of sight and sound

Categories: [New Acquisition] 

A collaboration by Jeffers Egan and Jake Mandell, Slither brings together elegant computer animation with a rich ambient music score. At once beautiful and unsettling, this world conceived by Egan and Mandell proves itself difficult to look away from. It is an overall powerful and visceral experience that certainly doesn’t disappoint.
