Display the graph that follows traditional African music’s voice strains of sway, between music and graphics so mix and so gave the impression of beauty in the melting pot of musical art and graphics.
Trippy, hypnotic, semi-stressful and yet still full of flair, this experimental short depicts the genesis and movement of its music’s propulsive rhythm, percussion building in momentum as our image alternately zigs and zags. You’ll never want it to end!
I like that we have the odd short film - I don't see that many usually and it also gives me a chance to catch up!
Love this and it works well to jazz.
As a kiwi I should plump for this being described as a New Zealand film (but shan't argue).
His sculptures are great as well.
A true NZ icon.
[Cinémathèque PT #: 35 mm] (2013) I love the fact that in order to do a film, you don't even need to have a film camera. How brilliant is that? Loved his films. I saw 3D animations popping into my head. It was so groundbreaking for me to watch this film and to discover even more possibilities within this seemless finite medium.
This is the ecstatic essence/expression of the universe, that we all know, even if we don't all know that we know. This is the shit Rumi wrote about (& that no one but poets can put into anything so limiting as words) Resists representation; no signifier/signified. Dance, maybe; but that's just another kind of poetry.. Almost makes it possible to believe for a sec that some 'consciousness shift' really could save us!
Film as art and a physical medium explored in its bare, most basic form. A mysterious, hypnotic trance - I felt like I was dreaming about a wilderness somewhere in Africa. All the elements - the visuals and music are perfectly balanced and synchronised. An absolute legend and experimental cinema at its finest.
