Fanfic Telepresence by Sculpture, August 2020
Fanfic Telepresence is a 20 minute documentary configuration of everyday cornucopia, tapes and synthesizer gnarl, conversational fragments, observations, juxtapositions, sensory punchlines, redirected energy, pattern, speculation.
We made this for Channel9319062‘s DREAM APPOLCALYPSE, streamed live 8 September 2020. What you see changes what you hear and what you hear changes what you see. Structure, harmony and discord come and go. It’s a (time) travelogue made in lockdown. Objects and situations lose their original meaning and communicate something else. The music is electromechanical. The pause control of a Uher 4000 tape recorder (Education Authority Unit) sees heavy action. Entities transmit by telepresence, inhabit places, objects and organisms, impersonate themselves.
Sculpture conclude their Projected Music sequence with an expanded video form in collaboration with Psyché Tropes label founder and filmmaker Steven McInerney. Watch online in its entirety below, or purchase videomedia eternity on ultra-limited Beta SX videotape.
Projected Music (Beta SX edition) is a 60-minute videocassette release of an audiovisual meltdown utilizing 2 x 5-inch Projected Music discs. Sutherland’s camcorders and zoetropes are combined with McInerney’s video hardware while Hayhurst’s multilayered 5-inch grooves are mixed into oblivion. All videocassettes come with digital downloads of Projected Music and Projected Reworks.
