Residency at Bandits-Mages

Together with the live video artist A-li-ce, I was invited by the video art residency of Bandits-Mages and the national French archive Centre CICLIC to compose an archive-based live cinema performance. Already before our departure to France, we had sifted through round about 4000 archived and digitised family and amateur films of the last century. In our stay at Bandits-Mages we finally selected, cut and put more than 2000 samples together to create our new performance INTRUDERS. While A-li-ce exclusively remixed the images, I sampled and built all used instruments out of the found-footage, too. Just the majority of the drums, the sub bass and, of course, the effects are added. After 14 days of production, we are looking now forward to finally premiere it on 8th April 2014 at 8:45 pm in the Cinéma Apollo (4 rue Albert 1er 36000 Châteauroux).

Many thanks to Bandits-Mages, Ciclic and the Cinéma Apollo for the organisation and the nice support. We had a very productive time in Bourges!

Please find below some images and a little video report of our stay in Bourges (FR). Many thanks to Laurent Mabet and Adèle Laubry from BipTV.

MashUp surprise
Un remix de la mémoire filmée de notre territoire : le cinéma amateur d’antan réinventé grâce aux medias de la création contemporaine.
La création proposée par A-li-ce et Swub en clôture de nos rencontres a été menée en association avec Bandits-Mages (Bourges), structure unique qui a vu le jour en 1991. Bandits-Mages est une plateforme de résidence, de production, d’expérimentation, de recherche, de diffusion et de sensibilisation dans le domaine élargi des médias contemporains tels que la vidéo, le cinéma, le son, ou encore les objets électroniques et numériques. A-li-ce et Swub y ont été accueillis en résidence en mars dernier afin de créer la performance de cette dernière soirée.
