Shattered Shards: PVRE MATRIX _ HD ACID

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013


PVRE MATRIX _ HD ACID from Matthew Caron on Vimeo.

Shattered Shards– the freeform, visual collab curated by wayfaring Brooklyn souls Matthew Caron and Rebecca Gaffney– is less of a directorial excursion than a freeform video jam session. No more clearly is this seen in their spastic, claustrophobic visuals for Brooklyn’s PVRE MATRIX (a.k.a. Daniel Moore). Taken from a set at La Sala, the video is built upon on a frenetic display of glitched video feedback, whip pans around the venue, and mirrored, kaleidoscopic original footage that’s all attack and no release, a sound match for PM’s tightly coiled, tension-riddled version of industrial music. – AD HOC

HD ACID premiered on AD HOC on February 27, 2013

Long Distance Poison – The Three Voices of Tawûsê Melek

Long Distance Poison – The Three Voices of Tawûsê Melek from Fin Records on Vimeo.

Before we got all comfy with EPGs and Guides and TiVo there were ‘flicking channels. And when you flicked channels you built up a bizzaro narrative from the fragments of TV that clunked in front of your eyes. People wrote endlessly about this as if these machine narratives gave us some insight into 20th century malaise; but In some Cronenberg-ian daydream these channels were not fragmented, they hung around and decayed over each other, melting together in an orgy of RGB (or Y’UV / Y’IQ, pedants).

Rising and falling and obtaining, in a Paralax View style, some sort of mental hold on you through its pixel overload, it nonetheless has many moments of almost woodcut beauty (see the black and white section with the peacock). Although mind-melded to the music throughout, interestingly, the video’s own momentum keeps it going well past the song’s end; like some whirling dancer still jerking up into the air long after the music’s stopped and the lights are on.

Matthew Caron’s hypnotic destruction of video is what’s being described above. They’ve done this in the service of “The Three Voices of Tawûsê Melek” by Long Distance Poison. This video is included on a DVD that will, in turn, be included with the Gliese Translations LP/DVD which can be pre-ordered here.
