TV: ‘Audiovisualize’ at the ICA Digital Studio
January 14 – February 7 2004
Audiovisual crew and DVD label Addictive TV are curating an exhibition of leading edge AV (audiovisual) work produced for their television and DVD projects. The exhibition explores the synergistic relationship between music and visuals, focusing on AV mixes - a new genre of art that bridges the gaps between cinema, club culture and the digital arts scene. Featured will be examples of film remixes from Addictive TV's ongoing Mixmasters project; classic and cult films that have been re-edited, re-soundtracked and reworked into ten minute AV remixes and include: Akira Kurosawa's epic Seven Samurai, the Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn thriller Charade and George A Romero's zombie classic Night of the Living Dead.
This exhibition will feature Addictive TV's own work alongside that of some of the world's leading AV artists, VJs, DJs and music producers. From the UK, featured artists include Giles Thacker (Orbital's resident animator & VJ) with The Mellowtrons, Si Begg and Robin Mahoney as the Noodles Foundation and Exceeda, winners of the 2003 Diesel-U-Music VJ award. From further afield there's work by US artists including DJ Spooky and AV pioneer Brian Kane (Emergency Broadcast Network), key figures on the Japanese VJ scene Glamoove (creators of the Motion Dive VJ software) and Gooddy, and from mainland Europe - German AV gurus Bauhouse and French award winning short film directors and VJs Metronomic.
