Life is based on intervals: the
waves on a
shore, night and day, the heartbeat. They tie us to images
whether the images
are immediately recognizable or not. "Intervals" is an
experiment in such
cycles - very short intervals of movement or sound are opposed
intervals, some of which are over a minute in duration.

audio - Woody Sullender
A movement study in which multiple
"digi-puppets" are shown in action. In this piece, we are
exposed to the "digi's" language methods, behavior patterns
and methods of interaction.

This piece deals with a variation
of "moment form", a term coined by composer Karlheinz
Stockhausen. Moment form is music
that neither recapitulates former moments nor moves to a
In this piece, moments in both sound and vision can be traced
to a) the moment
of repetition b) the moment of succession and c) the moment of

The basis of the piece is the
exploration of gesture as a calligraphic and choreographic
statement, exploiting the freedom,
energy and immediacy of the ultra quick sketch. Each frame was
in less than 3 seconds while viewing a dance move through
The soundtrack was improvised with a drum machine.
composer / animator - Dennis Miller
Past Tense, a work in three
sections, propels you through virtual abstract
landscapes. The images and sound are created
with an interactive process directly from code.

A sci-fi space chase on the steps
of the Buenos

Transylvania, "You and

Upgrade: Cyborg Ascending a
video / sound - Jon Shumway
Technologies, according to
Marshall McLuhan, function as extensions of humanity into the
environment. Thus, technology serves to blur the physical
boundary that separates our personal being from

A hallucinatory montage of
computer-generated images, sounds, samples, grooves, and
digital video -"is
the stream of consciousness of a soul burdened by the
judgement of others."

Forty-fives flows from thoughts
regarding nature, machines and corporeality. Both the sound
and video are built using looping structures.

The sun, that difficult to shoot
omnipresent orb, dominates the screen in this placid computer
animation which lightly plays with geometry.

The latent violence that underlies
Victorian utopian art is intimated in this excerpt from Daina
The concept of the "pastoral" is reinvigorated by the

These pieces were created
extemporaneously, evolving from image to sound to image to
sound. The content is in the interplay between what you hear
and what you see.
direction, video - Carol Goss
music - Paul Bley / piano & Kurzwiel synthesizer
dance - Vanessa Bley
The relationships between human
movement, the ocean and the melodic line are all
intertwined. The video was created
in live performance; the piano and synthesizer are realtime.

music - Allan Schindler
The animated imagery derives from
paintings and etchings on 35 mm clear and black film,
digitized and manipulated. Thumb
piano, pigmy pipe and gamelan metallophone sounds, were
transformed and contrapuntally
layered, intercut, diced and threaded into a pulsating "spider
suggested by the visual imagery.
Five Modernist Essays
music / image - Michael Lasater
These brief video/midi etudes are
an exercise in movement, color and spatial relationships. The
music is based on a tone row by Webern in his Konzert (Op.
24); the video is based on images of Ivens
"Rain" and Ruttman's "Berlin: Sinfonie der GrossStadt," films
contemporary with Webern's career. Webern's row (B Bb D, Eb G
F#, G# E F, C C# A), itself four groupings of three tones,
suggests the visual structure and rhythm of

Without realism, a substantial and
convincing universe is constructed from algorithms and sonic
whirlwinds: chaos is elemental

Piece to Music by Terry Wilson
electronic music - Terry Wilson
video - Jud Yalkut
The music merges text, sound, and
pulsing beats with audio manipulation. Imagery for this
piece was electronically generated from Wilson's audio
material, through the modulation of waveforms, digital delay,
keying and super-impositions.

Ancient dance and rhythms are
beautifully conjoined by these computer artists. The
ultimate goal of trance is
preserved and perhaps enhanced.
