Youtube bricolage

[Youtube= ]

I love Youtube bricolage (the art of remixing “found” video clips and music) and while I’m not particular fond of the soundtrack to the clip above (a Brian Eno remix of the Lopez-track from 808 State’s album Don Solaris), I would still like to share it with you for the film snippets listed below. In case your wondering who 808 State are, here is a badly hissing clip from their best track: Pacific. (And here is a clip from The Beloved and “Sun Rising”, at the time a similar outfit to 808 State)

    A little kitsch, but interesting montage indeed. I’ve just discovered the work of criminaly underexposed armenian artist Artavazd Peleshian, and this reminds me of his very particular technique he called “distance montage”, or “counterpoint montage”, where the shots follow a non-narrative chain of events through analogy of movement or composition.
    There are a few of his shorts on YouTube.
