9 Third Avenue Haiku (Michael, 2008, 52.7MB, 4:32 min)


We normally avoid posting our own work but this
time we’re going to make an exception.
Doron & I have a joint show at HTTP gallery & we’d like to
invite any DVblog readers in the area to come
along to the private view, this Friday, 16th January.
(Details on the HTTP site linked above)
I’ve posted a piece by each of us (which should
give you a feel for whether you’d love or hate us) but the HTTP
show is going to be a little different from our usual work
so please come along, have a drink, take a look & say hello…

Gary Brolsma – Numa Numa (2004, 3.7MB, 1:39)

Is this where I make the case that this was among
the first viral videos on the internets? Maybe, but
I’d rather just post this charming clip from the
erstwhile Staples employee from New Jersey,
dancing to Romanian pop in his bedroom.

Helmut Oehring – BlauWaldDorf

Blau Wald Dorf ( Blue Wood Village) (excerpt) (2001, 1.7MB, 53 secs)

The music of Helmut Oehring is like nothing you’ve ever heard.
A hearing child of deaf mute parents, he incorporates his early
experiences into the music he writes, which frequently features
sign language ( not in a token but a completely necessary and
integrated manner).
The actual sound world of the music, moreover, is suffused with a character that
must surely have been formed by those same early experiences -stringed instruments
are tuned down to points of almost unplayable slackness & there is a fragmentary and
distanced, almost walled-off, quality to it all.
If you’re intrigued by the clip it’s well worth checking out recordings of his stuff.
