My video dog days is an official selection in the Artists’ Film Category of the Aesthetica Short Film Festival in York, UK. It will be screened on Thursday 7th and Saturday 9th November (yes, twice!). Here is a little interview I did for it…
Generated out of the AGITATE:21C collaboration, using a single video sample each from Sylvia Toy St Louis, Camelia Mirescu, Patrick King, and Ian Gibbins with audio samples from Sylvia Toy St Louis and Camelia Mirescu. The video was processed with Isadora 3 and Final Cut Pro X, and the audio was processed in Logic Pro X. No material other than the samples was used.
The title “let me go” comes from an auditory illusion of coherent speech created from part of a processed audio sample that repeats throughout the piece.
My little video of birds we saw on the island of Öland off the coast of Sweden earlier in 2019 has been picked up to be screened at Klub Kino Split in Split, Croatia on 4th October 2019.
The video is part of a monthly series run by Klub Kino which has been running as a non-profit organisation active since 1952, with the aim of developing audiovisual culture and arts and providing space, technical and production resources for educational purposes and production, screenings and presentation of cultural and artistic content. The program is organised by Darko Duilo and this screening evolved out of the activities of a new international group promoting experimental and avant-garde cinema, video and other arts, AGITATE:21C… Click here for more.

My video these days was short-listed for the 2019 Film Poetry Competition sponsored by Poetry Film Live and was shown as part of The Big Poetry Weekend in Swindon, UK, on 4th October, 2019. The shortlist of 12 was selected from over 200 international entries.
My video dog daze is an official selection for screening in the Artist’s Film section of the Aesthetica Short Film Festival 2019 in York, UK, November 2019. This is one of the biggest and most diverse short film festivals around, so I’m totally amazed that my little video got it there!

During our recent visit to Sweden, I did an impromptu recording session of poetry with musician / artist Frédéric Iriarte [UNIC6 Electroacoustic Universal Art Music]. Frédéric then composed and played backing tracks for the poems. This is a very different approach compared to my usual style. There also are some interesting conversations in the mix…
