There's a new project going on. The process of unlearning how to make music. A cross-continental web audio project with my good friend Pedro St Pedro. An international venture between Athens, Greece, and São Paulo, Brazil. It was born about one or four weeks ago. Exploratory and influenced by the DIY and Messthetics scene of the late 70's.I think the name stands for any paradoxical proof, no matter how unbelievably obvious it is. Additionally, I have a soft spot for some Britons ;). The ghost of spectacle reigns the land. A series of audio attacks to the established genres have been uploaded. The first set is:
1. Lampada de Gás
2. Trilha Sonora 1 (indie não é independente, o folk não é o folk - os tempos mudaram e o que fazem hoje se chama conservadorismo)
4. Toreador Ejaculation
5. Foes Are Fantastic Teriyaki Friends

International exhibition of abstract cinema
In 1951, the artist and film-maker Cobra, Jean Raine, organized an exhibition of Abstract Cinema in Liege, Belgium, which saw the participation of the masters of cinema in the 1920s and 30s – Léger, Duchamp, Dulac, Ernst, Veronesi, Len Lye, Richter, Henry Moore and others. Abstracta Exhibition is featuring 200 films from around the world.
'Interspersed In Walls' will be screened @ Abstracta Film Festival this September in Rome, Italy.
Fields in the rural inner-land owned by the parents of urban working early dirty-something 'Jugend'. Rents and houses. Paternal 60s Junta real estate investements. Olives trees and 'Rooms to let' signs finance the struggling youth in metropolis. The Incomes from unknown activities. Money from the grandfather. The family supports its children here in South-eastern Europe. That's what we like and how they've been taught to accept. Let tradition speaks. The 'black work' [sic] extends the life of Greek family. Current status: We're just moments away from facing the decadent reality of the western values and pace. There are some people living marginalized. ..others feeding themselves with the side products of société conservative ideas. The balkan wet dream of west-east combination is about to be lost. There are some people choosing the 'VERSATILE' word as a life concept. C'est la nature. When poverty will bang on the door you'll see their desperate faces. At the end of the day we'll be left mit our Kultur und Dinge. ..with all our gathered choses. The vintage relics of a 20th century nostalgia.
I choose 'Les choses'. A house micro-cosmos with all les objets du désir. A Pallade, and a Stadio. Kunstwerke@home. Unfortunately, there are no party ordered/commissioned Malevich-es anymore. We've been left alone, floating... the EU sponsored arty lifestyle dictatorship of my citta. The excuse for the air they breathe extending their predictable lives.
5th Naoussa International Short Film and Video Festival 8-11 May 2008
11 May 2008 : 'Amour Lettristique' will be screened for the Digital View section.
How could we assess the web of a city and its effect on the residents’ mental disposal? Is every urban status the result of the eternal interactions of residents’ mental disposals? Where there are interactions there are frictions; fermentations through loose or tight collectiveness. Is there any chance for the opposite? Each moment of city could be accidental; could be explicitly defined by the degree of withdrawal or even deterrence of its residents. The mob likes to mingle. The city is a crib by now. Carnivorous urban planners and their dying breed. The city has an enormous sedative region; acting as a joyful drug for them. Region/Area/District/Place/Spot/Neighbourhood all those boring names. A preset walking path. A recreational area. A sunny beach. The limestone pavements by the sand y los palmitos. A gathering spot. Mental junk-food. Wander or live peacefully.
Tools: Proposed walk from: Heaven to Food [Is that all you need?] Next time: Time Travel Maps
The golden proportion- these are your choices. What you like. What you live. Your street. When you lean your head. The spooky coincidences. Your criticism. The observer's words are untold declarations of embarrassment. ...Something else should always have been said. Ruins of the 70s decade. The cheerful immigrant takes care of his bright white-painted garden. Einstuerzende Neubauten - they fill with new couples. What is that thing which makes you so powerful? What is that thing which justifies each thought of yours on stage? From which magic source do you draw your audacity?
