A following transmission.
I will bloom from this new shoot that is sprouting from my origin. I build all musical scores. A deeper exploration/construction/EXPRESSION of soldering my own circuits. A bolder, heavily analogue, fashioning of instruments. Creating rich textured hand made, progressive musical scores. Pairing simplified otherworldly animation. Birth, is continuing to thrive.

A film about friendship and a wondrous dream. Omeyma is Marijke De Belie’s expression of her fascination for hands and voice. Almost by accident we are witness to a conversation between the maker and her subject. The wondrous story which unfolds along the way, frames this beautiful portrait. The friendship between both women manifests itself in the lively game of hands and voice. The lines of the watercolour pencil on wet paper that Marijke De Belie uses to tell the story, give a poetic air to the film.

Marijke De Belie uses an animation technique to capture the drawing process. By manipulating the images she creates a bewildering environment of motion and repeated actions in time.
The Women of Thermi
Length: 11:31 min
Directed by: Philipp Bückle
Country of Origin: Germany
The Women of Terhmi I is an experimental short film by Philipp Bückle. The footage was shot in the area of Thermi on Lesvos, Greece. In ten vignettes five women dressed in black gather at different locations.
You will also see the sea and a white horse. Each scene lasts exactly one minute and is divided by one/two seconds of black screen.
Philipp Bückle, born 1979 is a musician and filmmaker from Dortmund, Germany.
After over 10 years of musicianship under the name Teamforest involving Europe-wide concert engagements, record releases throughout the world and numerous collaborations with internationally acclaimed artists Bückle felt the urge to explore another medium. First attempts in filmmaking were made and almost instantly appreciated. After a couple of music videos the first short movies were completed.
Length: 38:00 min
Directed by: Cesare Bedogné
Country of Origin: Italy
This film is based on documentary material but is not, strictly speaking, a documentary film. Nor it is a work of fiction. The film rather appeared to us like a dream, not a nocturnal dream, but one which unfolded day by day while shooting. A dream shared between the photographer-director and the actress (or, better, the woman portrayed in the feature), which nevertheless seemed to follow its own, enigmatic necessity through which the daily shots joined almost magnetically, interweaving in a pattern of superimposed layers that unceasingly merge and dissolve one in another, in the constant flux, crystallization and reshaping of psychic interior. At a certain point, this dream seems to end but in fact it only opens up to another dream, or hallucination, where the film itself abruptly starts to burn, unleashing new and old visions - fragments of reality - until it is put out by a sudden storm and dissolves in a twilight of sea-waters. In this sense, the film is also a meditation on the elements, Water and Fire, Wind, Earth and Skin: about a sun-eye that appeared by itself in one of the first shots and took possession of the narration, in the endless flow and unfathomable metamorphosis of all things and beings.
Cesare Bedogné is an Italian photographer, film-maker and writer. He graduated cum laude in Mathematics, with a thesis on Minkovski Space-Time, the geometrical theory at the basis of Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity. In the course of his studies he also deepened his interest for the visual arts, with particular attention to cinema and photography. In the 90’s he set up his first darkroom in the Netherlands, where he had joined his girl-friend Monique. In those years, “in the aim to capture the gaze in its pure state” , he concentrated on his Innerscapes project, focusing on “the strange moments when interior and exterior, the eye and the things looked at, seem to dissolve one in another”. After the loss of Monique, due to leukemia (1998), Cesare Bedogné returned to Italy and started working on the “Broken Images” series in a deserted TB Sanatorium in the Italian Alps, where – in his own words - he recognised his “personal landscape of desolation, stilled in a frozen twilight: the mysterious bareness where the soul, alone, returns to itself”.
