DVD release that may be of interest:

'Hi-Fi Rise' - 'Sonic Cities From Another Timeline'
DVD Video/Rom
Available Online from November 2001 see DVD page

This DVD debut by <mailto:remainzATyahoo.com>Semiconductor is one of
the first independently produced DVD
compilations of short films to be released. With 14 films, 8 by Semiconductor
themselves and 6 from guests artists, it sets the standard for future
alternative DVD releases. Set within a unique environment the films
can either be searched for individually, using your remote control,
or all played on loop infinitely. Semiconductor literally make films
out of sound and music, transforming it into a visual material to
compose landscapes and sound worlds. Their music can be described as
a contradiction where 'musique concrete' becomes simultaneously
hypnotic and violent, minimal and maximal. While many of their films
are processed based explorations of sound and the moving image others
explore animated fictional cities. 'Retropolis' takes you through an
imaginary London where all you see and hear is the electricity
passing through millions of flickering light bulbs or 'Linear' that
links the sub-atomic world of the 'String theory' to our own urban
landscapes through the vibrations of sound. Each of the guest
musicians has either produced a film of their own or collaborated
with a film maker. There is nothing MTV here, all of them come from a
very different place. Dat Politics work with Qubo Gas to produce an
insane pixel cut up, while People Like Us brings her 'plunderphonic'
music techniques to video. Others, such as Ian Helliwell, touch on
the infamous early abstract films or in the case of Amon Tobin's
'Slowly' (NinjaTune), Ben Rivers and Jeremy Butler create a delicate
world out of familiar products. Cities are further explored by
Process / Yvette Klein who take a trip through fragmented places and
moments while Top Hat Productions test out their specially prepared
pattern recognition glasses in public. Also on the disc is a DVD-Rom
section 'Earthquake Films' for PC and Mac where you can search
further for the moving image within a sonic landscape. Samples of
Semiconductor films can be seen on the website. Semiconductor is Ruth
Jarman and Joseph Gerhardt. Tel: (44) (0)1273 329477



Totally Radio 5 should be up and running in the next few days - a
compilation of PLU's favourite doo doo, pom pom and la la music, oh,
and the Follyfoot theme. Thanks to Brent and Les for keeping us
supplied. You'll need Windows Media Player to hear these, works on
both Mac and PC. For an archive of all PLU shows so far, go to
