Tom Hovinbøle's "Nor-Noise - 12 Portraits About Noise Music"

"Nor-Noise" is a documentary about Noise music - perhaps the most exiting and innovative form of music to evolve in the last years. The film maker Tom Hovinbøle has since the project started in 2001, interviewed some of the most central artists, both internationally and in Norway. The artists speaks about their relationship to tis music: What is it? Where does it come from? How do you work with pure sounds? Which possibilitys opens up with the new sound processing oportunities? Noise is also put into an historical context spanning from the Futurists and Luigi Russolo befor the First World War, through the first experiments with electronical music in the fifthies, the avang-gard in the sixties, the Industy and Punk movements in the seventies, before Noise establishes it self as a music in its own right in Japan during the seventies. The film also contains a lot of rare concert footage with the artists.

LoVid (video short)

LoVid (Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus) scrambles ordinary TV output into hyperkinetic audiovisual abstraction using homemade electronic devices, repurposed analog toys, and low-res video loops. In the duo's real time performances, an intense, variable audio signal disrupts the video's horizontal raster lines into swirling or stroboscopic patterns. Whether projected on a large screen or worn on the body as mini-monitors, the static sizzles and mesmerizes in an orgy of post-consumer creative destruction. LoVid's installations and object based work includes video stills transformed into fabric patchwork, wall collages, laser etched tiles, electronic mixed media sculptures, and photos. In these, LoVid focuses on the materialization of glitch video and electric signal into fixed objects.
