This is a work in progress which re emerged during gold digging though the archive of DV tapes at deckspace. It features the bulk of my performance at Exploding Cinema show Shunderhai in 2004 – Area10 Peckham.
It was generated live with a very early Sony DV camera into a Panasonic MX12 vision mixer then feeding back from dual projections off the top of an old piano on to a huge cotton screen hung in the grimy space at back of area10. The material on tape was just half of the performance so I have simulated the dual projection by mirroring the sequences and generating a fresh HD master.
The music on the day was supplied by DJ’s whose names are forgotten now and was pretty good but I have replaced that with This Heat – Graphic Varispeed 33rpm which is exactly the correct length! There was so much going on that night in the main space I felt a bit cut off and only a few people watched as I worked. The booklet for the event is represented in the exploding cinema archive I remember having to tread carefully in the pitch blackness as behind me there was a live electrical feed poking out of the concrete floor!
