The workshop is suitable for people interested in learning how to use a variety of video cameras and mixers to create experimental video work. No experience required, and you don’t have to be tech savvy! Minimum age 16.
IMPATV host an experimental video workshop prior to the Outlands ENSÕ SONE Tour, revealing some of the techniques used to create their videos and visual work.
The artists will guide participants on a journey through their creative processes and approaches to their diverse and perpetual output. You will get to play with a variety of cameras used to capture live footage, and use different formats and processes for video mixing, new digital effects and outmoded, lo-fi technologies to create an experimental video work together. The outcomes of the workshop will be recorded for participants to have their own experimental video work to take away with them.
Equipment and techniques used in the workshop will include:
Panasonic MX50, Panasonic WJ- AVE7, Roland V4ex, Korg Entrancer, Canon XL1s, Canon XF100, Hitachi FP7, Green Screen, video feedback loops.
Ensō Sone expresses a freedom to create loudness, which marks the starting point for this exciting new collaboration. Further ideas from Japanese Zen practice; of oneness, natural opposites and equilibrium, the spirit of harmonious cooperation, the visible and the invisible, absolute fullness in emptiness, simplicity, completeness, and endlessness are explored.
The tour includes special guests electronic, industrial act group A (now the solo project of Tommi Tokyo) who in turn collaborate with Berlin based visual artist DEAD SLOW AHEAD on a new multi-dimensional video universe, opening the gate to the inside-self, mixing slow ethereal abstract sounds with mind-shattering stroboscopic video pulsations, designed to challenge the observers’ expectations of AV work.
Formed in 2013, QUJAKU are a Japanese heavy psychedelic rock band based in Shizuoka. Their dark, heavy psychedelia is replete with rich distortion and feedback creating a unique decadent ambience. The apocalyptic sound they muster fuels an urge to release from the everyday to discover an ephemeral beauty behind the fierceness. The delicate yet strong leading voice, filled with destructive guitar, repetitive rhythmic percussion, and deep, bellowing bass combine to create Qujaku’s unique sound atmosphere to preoccupy the mind and enhance the experience.
IMPATV is a collaborative video and stage production project from UK artists Isadora Darke and Jamie Robinson. Using new digital technologies and live mixing methods combined with costumes and stage design they produce immersive installations, music videos, live streaming, and art and music productions across the realms of DIY, experimental and underground culture.
group A present a mix of synth heavy minimal wave, avant noise, striking visuals and performance art that carries the very breath of early industrial pioneers such as Throbbing Gristle or Cabaret Voltaire. Their early shows came as a shock to most spectators, non-stop waves of experimental noise, intensely emotional poetry readings and nude live-paintings. As the violinist Sayaka goes on a long hiatus, group A is evolving, currently the solo project of Tommi Tokyo, she continues to collaborate with Berlin based visual artist DEAD SLOW AHEAD for live A/V performances. The work of DEAD SLOW AHEAD centres around erratic geometry, slow strobe destruction, and negation of the visual comfort zone.
