Looper / Tilbury, John
MASS [DVD]

Looper / Tilbury, John: MASS [DVD] (Esquilo Records)
Label: Esquilo Records    
Released in: Portugal    


"First release on Esquilo's new DVD series, Incite Series, featuring audiovisual works of contemporary electroacustic improvisation and composition music and video art.

MASS is a collective intermedia project, featuring Looper (Nikos Veliotis, Martin Küchen, Ingar Zach) and John Tilbury, which integrates image and sound to reach a deeper conceptual level that brings open questions about human thoughts and beliefs to the foreground.

The visual side of MASS is realised by Nikos Veliotis and consists of religious images gathered from websites that advertise religion, any religion. The pictures are overlaid and animated in a soft pendulum motion, attempting to somehow detach religion from its obsessive quest for absolute truth.

MASS' audio material counterpoints the visual content in terms of constant long and lowercase stretches of sound, interspersed with soft chords and silences, paradoxically retaining a certain religious resonance. The musicians engage in a dialogue by producing a subtle sonic environment, providing the spectator with a suspended situation in which to submerge himself, dislocating him from the casual perception of time and space.

The DVD contains 2 audio tracks recorded live in Oslo and Stavanger. Bonus features include 3 video excerpts from the Stavanger onstage performance.

This edition comes in a gatefold black deluxe cardboard case with golden letterwork."-Esquilo Records
