Quite Quiet

The video camera follows four separate people, moving through the
forest, each listening to their own music on their ipod, each unaware
of the others, moving to the syncopated rhythm of their music, totally
absorbed by their natural environment, deeply involved with the forest.
Another video camera focuses on a drummer performing on a platform
high up in the trees.

The four tracks of music, in the four separate videos, combine into one
piece of music when projected onto the walls of the gallery. A fragment
of the natural environment, the drummer sitting on the platform in the
tree, has been transported into the gallery to perform with the four videos.
The videos come to represent an artificial fragment of reality. But the
drummer on the platform in the tree in the gallery is an actual fragment
of the performance in the forest.



Yet he is completely out of place in
the gallery. Reality becomes artifice while reproduction shows what is
real. The roles have interchanged in some kind of a short circuit, as if
the drummer orchestrated the whole performance, playing in the tree,
keeping the four different realities together and dialoguing with them.

Then a new element is added. City life comes to the gallery in the form
of a DJ, who adds his live set into the music, jamming with the drummer
and the forest performers.
