JDI ZA ŠTĚSTÍM in Bratislava
datum: 19 March 2009

Jdi za štěstím, a 35 mm multichannel audiovisual experience for cinemas is back, this time in Bratislava, kino Mladosť.

Birds Build Nests Underground decided to attack traditional cinemas by using the venues‘ normal equipment differently and employing primitive repetitions and rough minimalism. Martin Ježek has created more than 40 three-second film loops using a simple half frame camera ČAJKA(tm) II of Soviet provenience with unique characteristics that augment standard movie camera results. (the standard length of a 35 mm film reel times being two = 72 frames). All of the loops will be played on both projectors of the Cinda while Petr Ferenc and Michal Brunclík will route their turntables into the multi-channel amplifiers of the venue’s DOLBY(tm) system while and making sure their artistic efforts will not be limited by the presets of the in-house sound chain. Various meticulous preparations of the record grooves will create loops of sound and all three band members will respond to the dynamics of the images and vice versa. As with such endeavors there always remains a possibility: that nothing will happen, which can also be interesting.
