James Schidlowsky - [excerpt from square part]

This festival was convened by local experimental film collective Pleasure Dome as an attempt to deepen the collaborative experience between musical and moving image artists, which was manifested in a variety of ways over two nights.

Originally conceived as a collaboration, this piece from Montréal's James Schidlowsky ended up being a solo endeavour, but was still a satisfying mating of sound and visuals. Presented in a "square part" and a "circular part" corresponding to the shapes created by the visual processing, the lo-fi blipscapes (sounding like the national anthem of some faraway land where Pong is the #1 pastime) mixed nicely with the abstract visual dioramas.
