VANCOUVER UNDERGROUND FILM FESTIVAL

2002-11-19

Dearest Vancouverites...

THE V.U.F.F begins this Thursday November 21st, 2002

[sic] will be performing ’Realignment’ the following night at The Blinding Light 10pm during the ’Live On All Channels’ bill alongside Roughage, Brain Coffey and Eric Theise.

details http://www.blindinglight.com/vuffschedule.html#live

’Realignment’
LIVE sound and video (25 mins)
Through images of waterfalls, road trips, myriad physio treatments and walks through the park in search of squirrels [sic] explores the failure inherent in conscious attempts to align the mental and the physical. As we continue to overplan, overspend, and overkill, physical and emotional incoherence follow. Ultimately, these sounds and images become jarring, and they provoke anxiety. Slow-motion images become separated and disjointed as [sic]’s soundtrack supports their awkward state.

VUFF schedule and daily news can be found here http://www.blindinglight.com/vuff.htm

Tuesday 17th - 7:30pm:
Live show: MASAMI AKITA aka MERZBOW (Japan)
The ’king’ of noise. A medium for an endless flow of raw sonic matter? The physicalization of sound in full power, beyond any meaningful conception.

Isis, Below the Sea, Austerity Report Live at Sala Rossa,
Sept 6

ISIS, BELOW THE SEA, AUSTERITY REPORT LIVE AT SALLA ROSSA,
SEPT 6

Alien8 Recordings in collaboration with Casa del Popolo are pleased to
present Hydra Head/Ipecac recording artists ISIS with special guests
Below the Sea and Austerity Report. The concert is part of the weekend long festivities celebrating the second anniversary of the Casa del popolo.

Poised to release their latest full length, Oceanic, for the incredibly
hip Ipecac label, this will be only the second local appearance by the
Boston based leaders of what is now being refereed to as
post-metal...if this confuses you check out the review below courtesy of Aquarius Records in San Francisco.

Fronted by Hydra Head honcho Aaron, Isis were always The indie rock
metal core band, fusing their pummeling metallic crush with plenty of
Slint-isms, making them the perfect band for Allan and Andee, who are
always saying, ’I don’t understand why that post rock band doesn’t just
play metal’. On this, their newest ep, Isis do get heavier as well as a
bit more varied. Half the songs could’ve been Neurosis out takes;
monstrous and glacial instru-metal, somewhere between Earth and...well, Neurosis (which is maybe appropriate seeing as this is on Neurosis’ Neurot label). But the less heavy moments are the ones that make them really stand out. Track 3 is a slow motion, tribal soundscape of simple, pounding drums and droning guitars. But track 5 is the one; a breathtaking cinematic soundscape of chiming guitars and restrained drumming. Sounding a lot like Godspeed You Black Emperor, they stretch out, and build an epic, emotional, slowly building, post rock masterpiece.

Below the Sea recently released their sophomore release Les Arbes
Depayseront Davantage and things have never looked brighter for this up and coming Mtl and Quebec City based trio. The band doesn’t play all
that often, so if you missed the record launch, here’s your chance.

Austerity Report are totally unknown to us at this point, aside from
the fact that have recently signed on the dotted line for Hydra Head and
have a recording of some sort in the pipes. The band was described as
non-cheesey industrial duo that could be compared to a hybrid of
Shellac/big black meets prime era Godflesh.

The concert features Isis, Below The Sea and Austerity Report and takes
place Saturday September 6 at 9pm at the Sala Rossa, admission is $10
in advance and $12 at the door.

NEW ITEMS AT THE ALIEN8 WEB STORE

The following items are newly available from the Alien8 Recordings web
store at http://www.alien8recordings.com/store/

Vromb: Memoires paramoleculaires CD (Hushush)
Inspired by the emerging Hushush sound, Memoires paramoleculaires is a digital sequencing of analog sources. This is the result of a process
of understanding Heurel Gaudot’s participation to Vromb’s musical output.
It is constructed as the first chapter in an electronic opera for
ultratonical machines. Questioning our link to reality, this sci-fi
musical project is a reflection on our condition as organic machines.

Alexandre St-Onge: Kasi Naigo CD (Squint Fucker Press)
St-Onge’s third solo release continues his experimentations with
acoustic
sound.

Jen Morris & Michael Egger Pivophone LIVE

Pivophone by Jen Morris & Michael Egger (world premiere)
Thursday, January 17, 2019 at 8 PM
Cinema Bellevaux, Route Aloys-Fauquez 4, 1018 Lausanne Vaud, Suisse

À faire se retourner Edison dans sa tombe, voici en première mondiale le pivophone, dont la performance sera retransmise en direct sur plus de 20 radios publiques européennes, dans le cadre du Art’s Birthday organisé à Lausanne par Espace 2 au Cinema Bellevaux.

Tournant dans la tête de Jen Morris depuis des lustres et réalisée avec Micheal Egger, cette nouvelle machine pourrait s’inscrire comme la cerise sur le gâteau d’une histoire des machines à bruits. Des Intonarumori futuristes aux tubes robotiques des frères Decoster, c’est toute une généalogie glorifiant la virilité agressive, la force, le pouvoir, l’industrie et la guerre que révèle le pivophone. Le pivophone met en doute ce qui jusqu’à son arrivée faisait autorité dans les arts du son. Alors, s’agit-il d’écouter des pives comme John Cage désirait entendre l’âme des cendriers ? Non, mais on se rapproche. Et oui il faut se rapprocher. On est dans l’art de la miniature. Miniature d’un gros show télévisé où les pop stars sont des pives. Miniature d’une scène faite miroir. Miniature d’une patinoire d’Holidays on Ice, où les danseurs-hockeyeuses sont finalement grandeur nature. Alors déjà assité à un ballet de pives majestueuses sous speed ? Déjà écouté le fracas d’une pive contre une autre ?

Jen Morris est une artiste sonore de performances électroniques, radicales et troublantes. De renommée internationale sous le pseudo [sic], Morris communique rarement avec l’espèce humaine. Mais lorsqu’elle le fait, à travers, aussi, la vidéo, l’installation, la bande son de films et son label Squirrelgirl, c’est frontal et désarçonnant. Automatic word wrap
http://squirrelgirl.com/releases/SIC/

Michael Egger est un artiste vidéo, bricoleur-inventeur, programmeur, musicien et pédagogue.
