Below are videos from a series I am currently calling Broadcast Version, with the idea that these are commercial films that have been imperfectly captured to video and then recut for possible broadcast using low power transmitters to be recieved for aesthetic purposes by old analog televisions.
These videos are sometimes concisely edited for screening and in other cases involve extensive processing to generate abstractions better suited to looping as part of an installation.
As of July 2010 I am particularly interested in developing abstracted remixes of a found bootleg copy of the movie Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen which director Michael Bay and star Shia LaBoef have both admitted was not a very good film. So perhaps this process offers some improvement?
The first of these re-mixes involves an improvised alternate audio and visual score overlaid on the original film fusing my interests in appropriation and electronic cymatics.
