Bernard Parmegiani - L’Ecran transparent/The Transparent Screen
from Seth Watter 4 years ago Not Yet Rated 1973 video by Bernard Parmegiani with accompanying musique concrete score. The source is a VHS rip, the origin of which is unclear. Special thanks to the CiNEMAGROTESQUE uploaders for this one, despite the fact that they attributed it to Polish animator Piotr Kamler… whom he had composed for previously. “L’Ecran transparent” comes from a fruitful period of audio-visual art during a residency in Köln, after Parmegiani had returned from a tour of the U.S. The score can be found separately on a 3” CD called “Musique Concrete Soundtracks to Experimental Short Films, Vol. 6.”
Murder, sex, drugs, art, politics … sneakers hanging on telephone lines have become a powerful urban symbol, inspiring genesis theories both hilarious and sinister. In an effort to get to the truth once and for all we asked the people of earth to help us solve the mystery. Using an online call-out and a phone message bank, this documentary was made entirely from donated photographs, phoned in theories, video, vlogs, and animation. The mystery of flying kicks is the result of this unique digital collaboration between the film makers and the international public.
