Endoscopy inside a bass saxophone. "Tract is the image of an inert place, which when touched, it becomes an organic center, a confluence of the dry and the moist, the perfect and the throbbing, the calculated and the unpredictable. Is a journey through an interior preserved, the path through the dark cave whose holes arises breathing, halite and noise. " (Pilar Martín Gila)
Endoscopia/ viaje por el interior de un saxofón bajo. "Tracto es la imagen de un lugar inerte que, al ser tocado, se transforma en centro orgánico, confluencia de lo seco y lo húmedo, de lo perfecto y lo palpitante, de lo calculado y lo imprevisible. Es el viaje por un interior preservado, el recorrido por la oscura gruta de cuyos orificios surge la respiración, el aliento y el ruido." (Pilar Martín Gila)

Equi-librium. A latin word that is composed by “equi” (same) “librium” (weight). But what is the real meaning of that word inside one self, inside a couple, inside a space? How can the chaos become equilibrium? This is a work about the search of equilibrium.

Sydney’s round-the-clock urban thoroughfare. Australia’s first inner-city highway. A twenty three kilometre stretch of tarmac and concrete lined with motor industry retailing and servicing that professes in no uncertain terms the sovereignty of the motor car. Exposed as a tangle of pollution, noise and drudgery in daylight, but at night transformed into an erratic landscape where darkness is punctured with floodlights and fleeting headlights.

CLOCS are sculptures in incessant metamorphoses, improvised performances which interact with all contexts, undefined beings who rediscover the world apart from established benchmarks. CLOCS are piles of used clothes, sewn to one another with elastic links, to the point of forming an enveloppe that bodies below wear as their skin and make alive. These relational membranes, folded and unpredictable, adapt to varied situations, recreating each time a surprise. Form of life hatching and becoming, CLOCS are also a matrix which create multiple reactions for passers. They appear suddenly at the bend of alleys and other common nooks to renew and question our way of existing in the public space, of meeting the other, and cohabiting with him. Anaïs Lelièvre lives in France, in Paris and in Marseille. She studied art in the University Paris 1 and in Beaux-Arts in Rueil-Malmaison and in Rouen. She creates drawings, installations, sculptures and also the sculptures-performances CLOC.

The virtual and the physical realms converge in "Dining Tsars"; although in former times such an exquisitely elaborate porcelain setting would only be enjoyed by aristocrats and royalty, now it can be scanned by any consumer with a free 3D phone app. The glitch effects produce a surreal but historically prescient tableau populated by figurines with guillotined heads, melting dinnerware, and strangely embalmed peacocks. A flock of 3D modeled ‘drone-like entities’ execute reconnaissance maneuvers under the gaze of a herd from a different dynasty. The sound-score détournes a movement from Tchaikovsky’s “Pathétique”, which was itself a subversion of symphonic expectations.
02- Abel Jiménez Rivas - Crisálida | Chrysalis, 2014 PAL – 16:9 | 08:40 | from Barcelona, Spain. website > www.caminando-art.com
sound & video created by Abel Jiménez Rivas
The intent of this project is to create a visual metaphor on a current event that affects many young people given the historical context of crisis in which we find ourselves, the difficulty of emancipation as a form of natural evolution of adulthood.
Chrysalis, seen as a container element of natural transformation, abandoned by the insect at its adult stage, helps us to express the idea that evolutionary space that could well be our family home.
When the social context does not allow these adults leave their space transformation, the agony and anxiety of who wants to escape an oppressive space is created.

I was interested in the cut&paste culture and video sampling from the earlys Youtube era (2005). At that time, I created my firsts video-remixes, mashups, videosongs and began to interest with making and editing with appropriate material at a video-musical project called O.A.U (quite fun!) Since 2009 approx. I started filming my own material and create experimental music projects. I'm currently filming a documentary / mockumentary (first) on culture Dj In the video “The Yet untitled book”, the visual artist Mariana Orozco stayed along 7 months writing in a continuos paper in a hall.
06- Tea Guarascio - Slip Away, 2016 PAL – 16:9 | 04:28 | from Barcelona, Spain. website > teaguarascio.net
sound & video created by Tea Guarascio ob-art produccion
Photographer, video artist and V.J., her works of videoart usually treat facts related to gender, sexuality and the human body, with syncopated and hypnotic rhythm, alternating colors, speed and sound. In “Slip away”, the solitude of nature is interrupted by the passage of our eyes, that as a knife cuts landscape Lynchian memory .. the vast horizon becomes the thousand shades of white on colorful panoramas ... and our passage makes the pieces ice, the sky drag our trip in a surreal dimension..
07- Eden Mitsenmacher - Couldn't Dream Anywhere, 2016 PAL – 16:9 | 03:39 | from Rotterdam, Netherlands. website > www.edenmitsenmacher.com
sound & video created by Eden Mitsenmache
I went to the woods today, Cause I couldn't dream anywhere I went to the woods today Cause I couldn't dream anywhere I went to the woods today But I couldn't sleep anyway Why? I couldn't take away the time... It seems our consciousness is fascinated by our own hands. It makes sense, for aren't they a symbol of our agency? That endlessly fragile agency, the sense of which is mostly constructed, almost dreamt up. Yet we're searching for it relentlessly. Hurtling through space like that, is restlessness any wonder? And so we dream… We dream meaning into the vortex. We escape to the woods. Our woods. We code representations of our imagined bodies into cyberspaces and spend our time watching them. Mesmerised. There's something out there... Listen carefully. A lullaby. A nursery rhyme. A mantra. Meaning as self-soothing. Dreaming while wondering how come we're running out of places to dream, to even just sleep. Out of space. Out of time. So let yourself drift away to the sound of the hum of the spheres. This too shall pass.
The consistent life in work for the existence, Is bewildered, twisted thoughts in congested suffocations. The happy or Joy or living in a world seems of a frog in well. The living in colours though disruption in prevail. The play with the soccer ball or the matter of mobile phone in use at a time is said to be the man in continues outcome of the soul and body. The restless in the heaven looking like hell. He’s managing the things without the life of inner eyes interpretation. But as the man from concrete jungle, building the self of materialistic life out of the unhappy soul in the sweat bath.

13-vÄäristymä - Kunhan, 2016 PAL – 16:9 | 04:56 | from Helsinki, Finland. website > vaaristyma.webs.com
sound & video created by Janne Liimatainen & Jarko Hedenius a.k.a. vÄäristymä
Janne Liimatainen and Jarko Hedenius, two brothers from Helsinki, Finland, began creating music with computers in 1992. Within a few years, the computers gave way to the raw and primitive world of analogue gear. When some experimental, self-made sound-sustaining structures were added, the music began to evolve into a more unexpected and exploratory direction and vÄäristymä was born. The music was created without synchronization, without any kind of metronomic coordination, and recorded exclusively in one take.

« L'Heure Bleue », period between the day and night, the conscious & unconscious....
sound created by Paul J Botelho & video created by Russell J Chartier
The video component exploits the artifacts that are inherent to the video medium as a conscious deconstruction of the medium itself. The musical component of this work centers around an ascending melodic fragment which is presented through distressed piano recordings. Viola da gamba, voice, and environmental recordings along with sounds found in the composer's archive that date from the year 1999 are collaged together to form a tapestry upon which various transformations of the piano fragment are set upon. An important aspect of the collaboration between Russell J. Chartier and Paul J. Botelho is the principle of synchronicity. The video artist and the composer never work directly with one another’s work during the collaboration. Only the specific duration of the piece is agreed upon and no other communication in regard to the work is made during the collaboration. Solely upon the completion of both the video and music components is the work realized. The artists call this process a collective subconscious, a term which refers not only to the exclusionary creative actions which take place in their collaborative effort, but more broadly as the commonality that permeates betwixt the artists and those close to them .

It’s a stalking. A skyline stalking. A stalking of acousmatic bodies, these bodies which we don’t know the source. This stalking scratches our eye, makes that eye has doubts about things outlines. This stalking makes that eye abdicates reality.
A video work that considers how the internet has slowly changed over recent years, due to the over-utilization of technology and the screen that's been facilitated by the corporations that control and monitor the internet, in order to restrain the first world needs of the average consumer
24- Simon Coates - Zola Panama, 2016 PAL – 16:9 | 05:45 | from Dubai, UAE. website > www.simoncoates.com
sound & video created by Simon Coates
Zola Panama features footage of an abandoned survival craft I discovered on a beach in Fujeireh in the United Arab Emirates. Research uncovered that it had belonged to an oil tanker that had disappeared without explanation or investigation off the coast of Fujairah in 2015. As the tanker's disappearance was never investigated, there are no reports of survivors (or otherwise). There are various websites that track the whereabouts of registered commercial shipping and the tanker (named Zola, last registered in Panama) is shown to be at anchor at a latitude of 25.34415° and a longitude of 56.48769°. The soundtrack is made from ambient noise recorded at the scene.

sound & video created by Sid and Jim
Presented is material (visual and auditory) sourced from randomly generated Internet sites and visually similar image/sound searches. The film is primarily focused on mapping, and the divisions it leads to, and the differences between places (virtual and physical). The title is a further nod towards this; we all know the frustration of putting ones arm into the head hole of a t-shirt or jumper, leaving the only other remaining openings too small to fit ones head. This draws a parallel with the search for answers through furious googling is shown through a stream of similarly related content all happening at simultaneously.

Este proyecto tiene dos propósitos: el primero, plantear lo vulnerable que es la información, el como un maleware o virus podría destruir nuestra memoria, la cual está siendo recopilada en millones de archivos digitalizados; la segunda tiene que ver con la definición de paisaje, el termino con el que acostumbramos a valorar el territorio y ciertas particularidades de este, pero ahora planteado desde la perspectiva de tener ante nosotros un lugar no explorado por el hombre, solo visto a través de aproximaciones de robots, sobre la superficie de Marte, en varias misiones NASA que nos han mostrado su superficie: lugares con cráteres, colinas, estratos, afloraciones, semejantes a las que ya tenemos en nuestro planeta. / Estos nuevos territorios representan lugares donde todavía no se ha consumado la conquista de la horizontalidad, espacios donde la línea imaginaria que supone el horizonte permanece inalterada, y por tanto la conquista de estas vastas extensiones de terreno aún está por llegar.
The "JB 720 NXS 25881 + Project" video is composed of a generative sound and a visual construction. Firstly, the visual is various stacked layers added to a digital process on sequences of fixed photographies / ultra-macro / in order to overtake their figurative representations in the aim to highlight pictorial forms. On the other side, the sound lead to an electro-acoustic atmosphere, predominated by tones with remarkable depth. Moreover, it is completed by a sound thinking on electric guitar. The work forms geometric and generative shapes seeking to global balance emphasizing creative and experimental thinking.

sound & video created by Grant Petrey
Filament explores temporality and phenomena within moving image and sound. Central to the work is an engagement with subjectivity and mediation to approach notions of the sublime. This processed work responds to passages within Lacan's IX Seminar (1961 - 62) that questions interiority and exteriority.

sound & video created by Philippe Neau a.k.a. nobodisoundz
"Errance" suggests a suspended moment in the landscape. A slow-vibrating and colored time for a visual walk. The textured pictures resound with choked and distant sounds. We are in " a mental landscape".
The sound participates at the rate of the movies. It follows, underlines, amplifies this atmosphere to get and take the viewer in an experience beyond the reality.
A moment, sometimes short, powerful and lively when the viewer is taken by pictures and the sound. The experimental form of my movies is an asserted esthetic choice where the not narrative bias is assumed to leave free the sensitive perception of the viewer.
