Participants: Justin Bennett (UK/NL), Tina Frank (AT),Bas van Koolwijk (NL), Jérôme Noetinger (FR), Gert-Jan Prins (NL) and Billy Roisz (AT). This amazing project premiered at the Kontraste Festival in Austria last year (link). It was commissioned by Kontraste and Sonic Acts.

Also at Sonic Acts: Experimental film performances by William Raban and Makino Takashi. Wave Formationsby experimental filmmaker William Raban (UK) is an abstract film using three screens and sound. It articulates a seascape by using primarily colour fields and sounds to demonstrate that ‘waves’ are a fundamental phenomenon in nature, film and sound.Makino Takashi’s overwhelming abstract works make full use of all the various film and video techniques, treating the image and the sound as elements of equal importance. At Sonic Acts, Takashi will show a special 3D version of his film 2012.
