Gabriel Shalom - HOUSE
House is a whimsical video-music documentary about the different styles of house music. DJ Scott Hardkiss describes the various musical styles while an anonymous actor provides musical illustrations in a house. All the music in the video comes directly from the sounds of the actor moving about in the house.
Nate Harrison - Bassline Baseline
single channel DVD with sound
total run time 21 minutes
Bassline Baseline is a video essay that investigates the invention, failure and subsequent resurrection of the mythic Roland TB-303 Bass Line music machine in the last two decades of the 20th century. The narrative seeks to invite thoughts on technological mediation within product innovation and creative expression. The dead-panned 'documentary' video attempts to explore how and why creative tools fail and how increasingly more options, parameters or intermediaries devised during a tool's research and development phase don't necessarily lead to increased expressivity or virtuosity during the tool's lifetime of actual use, unless the super-structure of its cultural context is dramtically reconsidered.
