In these works I am using small video cameras on the hands of the performers, with a camera on each hand, and the two images superimposed. In the piece N + M, I use six video images displayed on monitors in the space, simultaneously. In Nomis, I use three of the superimposed images, plus one image of the whole setup to show what is happening. For both pieces, I have recorded the rich sound that is produced, in stereo and in sync sound. And in the exhibition, I am mixing the 6 stereo tracks of N + M and the 3 stereo tracks of Nomis to stereo in the different exhibition spaces.

For the piece Nomis, I am pleased to thank Simon Muller, the glass blower, for making such beautiful sounding glass bowls.

« Phill Niblock, photographe, cinéaste et compositeur, directeur du centre "Experimental Intermedia", a composé un film musical irradié. Au rebours de l'iconographie exubérante propre à Sun Ra, il s'immerge dans les gestes musicaux au moyen de gros plans et les restitue dans un négatif noir et blanc qui monumentalise les vibrations acoustiques en galaxie sonore. » (Nicole Brenez)
With Sun Ra and his Solar Arkestra. An immersion in musical gesture rendered in negative black and white that immortalises acoustic vibrations in a galaxy of sound.
