I Turned and Walked Away (4:48) was created by Paul Windridge and features music by DJ 00 Newchair. The experimental short is a step into another reality, a dream, where the viewer becomes trapped. The audience is allowed to escape from the mundane into an alternative existence where things are drastically different, a dark and claustrophobic alien environment, a multi-dimensional universe.
For many years being an artist, to me, meant painting, but over the last few years art has evolved into moving image and audio as well as the still image. This has opened up alternative possibilities to explore what we perceive to be reality and to have the ability to present it as something completely different.
I have written, produced and co-directed several narrative shorts including the poetic “Spellbound” trilogy, but more recently I have been involved in creating and developing multi-layered atmospherics and kaleidoscopic split-screen.
A series of road trips up and down the hills of San Francisco – time-altered, mirrored voyages which turn reality on it’s head. Then came “metroscopic” in 2009. A night-time underground, overground, train journey which has been shown at film festivals in London, Berlin, Paris, Dublin, Siena and Zurich.
I have been employing similar techniques to produce a series of multi-layered distorted voyages and illusiory displacements of time and place to compliment the music of Satsangi and their new album “No Shoes in Satsang Hall”.
My latest music (‘these are my bananas’ + ‘and still my bananas’ by DJ 00 Newchair) along with accompanying DVDs, are a diverse mix of pulsating dance tracks alongside flowing, ambient sound pictures.
Powerfully rhythmic, layered beats mixed with hybrid synthetic sound and original sound morsels recorded from the everyday. Drift on the electronic seas of atmospheric chill-out soundscapes.
“Confrontation and chaos mixed with calm and cerebral. Weird and wonderful. Late night or early morning – ‘these are my bananas’ inhabits a space between two worlds of light and dark – a schizophrenic adventure reverberating through an alternative world”. Says my uncle Gordon
