Other Film Festival Sound Walk, Brisbane 24/03/2006 - video

I went along to the Sound Walk workshop and walk at Other Film Festival in Brisbane earlier this year. here's a slideshow video of some photos taken along the walk. it brought back such memories! the walk was from South Bank to the city along the river. we went through the Botannical Gardens near QUT Gardens Point which is where I went to Uni. everything was so familiar though I hadn't been there in a few years.

the music is "Don't you worry" by The Beloved

Other Film Festival in Brisbane

1. OFF at Trash Film Club
2. OtherFilm Festival - 23-26 March 2006 Brisbane

1 - OFF pre-festival LAUNCH PARTY TONIGHT!
7pm Tuesday 21st March: Troubadour

Tantalise your senses with a big night of hand-coloured film, art and
mayhem as Film Club hosts a special teaser program for OFF 06.

Relive the magic of the Wednesday Audience Film handpainted,
scratched, coloured by over 20 people at the OFF 2004 festival, with
live soundtrack by Brisbane noisemakers Impromptulons, performing a
highly rhythmic free-form improvisation based on the "everybody solos,
nobody solos" principle...with extra handmade short film by Gregory
Godhard.

Arthur and Corinne Cantrill will show their beautiful handmade, hand
processed short 16mm films Studies in Image De-Generation (1975),
Floterian (1981), and the very fun funky Milky Way Special (1971).

Finally for shorts - American avant-gardist Paul Sharits' infamous
perception-warping 1966 flicker film Piece Mandala/End War on 16mm
film.

We'll climax with the stunning 1969 Czech surrealist feature Fruit Of
Paradise [by Vera Chytilova, maker of Daisies (a Film Club hit in
2005)], a social satire, a serial killer mystery, a perverted fairy
tale, shot in luscious colour scheme of rotting browns and slimy
greens overlaid with bleeding scarlet, with Zdenek Liska's enigmatic
avant-garde score.

Globe Cinema, 226 Brunswick St. Fortitude Valley

Otherfilm sees 'cinema' differently, as something that's open to
re-imagining; crying out to be liberated from industrialised models,
and predetermined structures and experiences. This year's festival
features performances that expand traditional notions of 'cinema',
installations that elaborate on the idea of 'the screen' and workshops
that introduce participants to ideas of acoustic ecology, as well as
shooting, processing, editing and projecting super8 film. Of course,
we've also included fantastic screenings program featuring new film
work and retrospective selections.

In celebration of Australia's contribution to expanded cinema's
international history Otherfilm are delighted to welcome Arthur and
Corinne Cantrill, pioneering film artists and authors of the
long-running avant-garde film journal, Cantrills' Filmnotes. Arthur
and Corinne will perform a selection of expanded cinema pieces
involving voice and body movement, sculptural objects, specially
crafted screens and avant-garde film. The Cantrills' have also curated
a screening program of their own films, a retrospective tracing the
development of their unique approach to filmmaking, spanning five
decades.

Curators: Danni Zuvela, Joel Stern and Sally Golding

and extensive oeuvre, selected by the filmmakers especially for

works, articulated images, experimental documentary, colour separation
and much much more.

LIGHT AND SONIC EXPANSION PART 1

Lloyd Barrett premieres 'Mise en scene' for diegetic and non-diegetic
filmsound, Vanilla (Van Sowerwine and Camilla Hannan) create a
beguiling and bizarre mix of shadow puppetry and noise. Abject Leader
(Joel Stern and Sally Golding) expose their unhinged expanded cinema
dreamscapes featuring sonic contributions from Terracid. Pride and
Prejudice (Melbourne's Pia Borg and Mark Harwood) evoke "the uncanny"
through multiscreens, voice and unique projections.

and films designed for projection on other specially-made screens.

LIGHT AND SONIC EXPANSION PART 2

Botborg perform a "brutal audio-visual barrage, erratic as it is
blinding and deafening. In effect something like a rainbow in a
blender screaming television static." A new 35mm film by Jim Knox,
'cortical landlord after compost'. The Rejuvenation Loops
(Auckland's Eve Gordon and Sam Hamilton) meditate under murky curtains
in droning cyclic scramblings seen through pinhole glimpses of
glimpsing pinhole flares, and finally, a blast for the eyes and ears -
dada-meinhof, Danni Zuvela and Tina Blakeney use projections and
prepared homemade instruments to gnaw at the edges of perception with
fed-back ruminations on the military industrial complex, nature's fury
visited on Bunjalung, and a minimalist exploration of petroleum
aesthetics.

Sunday 26th March
6:30pm-11:30pm - Cube Galleria

EXPANDED CINEMA - CLOSING PARTY AND SCREENING

Closing rituals featuring expanded cinema re-enactments of classic
avant-garde works and scavenged rip-offs, the world-shattering OFF
collaborative film and sound work produced by the previous day's film
re-film and soundscape workshop participants. A screening of Paul
Sharits' 25-minute Razor Blades (1966), which "consciously challenges
our eyes, ears and minds to withstand a barrage of high powered and
often contradictory stimuli". Brisbane's sprawling and unpredictable
psych-heroes The Lost Domain perform a live soundtrack to a special
16mm film print premiere screening of the new work Memorium by
legendary Melbourne avant-garde filmmaker Dirk de Bruyn., Jamie Hume
emerges from Auchenflowers's cabinet Voltaire to perform his
unclassifiable extra-musical nonsense poetics amidst the general
chaos. Audience joins in and enjoys until everyone goes home. OFF
ends.
