excerpt from Word Music Fire
excerpt from ‘Word Music Fire’ (1981, 8.7MB, 7:45 min)

Found at newmusicbox ,which also has lots of interesting interview footage
with the composer. Despite the low quality of this clip, it suffices to indicate
what a thrilling piece of work this (originally made for TV by Channel 13/WNET)
must be in its entirety.
I’ve been a bit of an Ashley agnostic until now, but this has really whetted my appetite
for more.
Partly it’s that, music aside, the vid by John Sanborn in collaboration with
Kit Fitzgerald
is so great.

Arlene (1994, 19MB, 54 secs)

Beautiful and delicate, yet somehow tough, bit of
performative portraiture from 1994 by Eleanor Suess.
I really like the fact her work doesn’t scream look-
but when one does look
carefully, there is art enough to engage,
reward and move.

Jail La La (2010, 65MB, 4:36 min)
Another music video, this time from
the Dum Dum Girls.
Great song, great film too, from Christin Turner.
Both make me dizzy inside & grin stupidly
on the outside.

Food Terror (2008, 73MB, 4:36 min)

More from Manchester’s Doodlebug.
This one is particularly splendid and
meal times will never be the same again.
Here’s the text Michael Barnes-Wynters sent me but
I don’t really know what it means:

Doodlebug Presents…25/10/08 at Contact feat.
Ronald fraser-munro’s RFM-UNPLUCKED. manc. poet
amanda milligan’s ‘mz.milly does…’ debut outting
with ‘On Becoming a Human Being’ (AV mix).
a sneak preview of Urbis’s Black Panther artist
Emory Douglas expo. French guerilla photgrapher
JR’s ‘Women are Heroes’ plus Terrorist’s FOOD TERROR mix.

I think we’re watching that last item.
Anyway, it’s great.
More soon.
