alchemy film festival

loops from ingenting kollektiva's forthcoming cd + dvd lost beyond telling playing at scotland's alchemy film festival, fri 26th - sun 28th october 2012

in addition, invisible birds has just sent the cd + dvd master of lost beyond telling to the manufacturer, and should have copies to sell shortly.

notes to the screening :

the spectral analysis loops are a series of films by tarrl lightowler (image, editing, sound) and matthew swiezynski (editing and sound). there are four so far, they can be shown together or separate. the starting off point for this is a quote from paul celan :
"i attempt to render sections from the spectral analysis of things, to show them in many aspects and permutations simultaneously: their relations, sequences and oppositions.
unfortunately i am unable to observe things from all sides...i consider my so-called abstraction and my actual ambiguity to be moments of realism."
the films are loops made from animated photographs of Natur taken by tarrl lightowler and then generally remixed by matthew swiezynski with either new soundtracks, or extended versions of sound from their LP fragments of night. Nature, landscape, poetry, alchemy and perception are very important to this series.
tarrl lightowler and matthew swiezynski have been making films/videos exclusively dealing with nature for 20 years now and about 15 years together. the collaboration comes from a desire to use abstraction (in image and sound) to deal with Natur directly, in a way not dissimilar from the great Romantics.
