Edges; for amplified Plexiglass board and Super 8 projector
is a collaboration between composer Christina Viola Oorebeek, filmmaker Ester Eva Damen and percussionist Arnold Marinissen. Christina Viola Oorebeek creates sounds of transcience - inspired by suitcase wheels bouncing on city streets; tires rolling over highways; an off-kilter bass solo ad the murmur of a Super 8 film projector playing at different speeds. During the collaboration a new instument emerged: a rectangular, amplified board made out of Plexiglass, mounted with strips of decorative wooden moulding - played by Arnold Marinissen with non-traditional objects. Ester Eva Damen explores light and time through shifting layers of nighttime images.
The five movements of Edges show visual rhythms, city streets, a traveling carnival. In this play of shifting phases the music and film complement and define each other in seemingly random ways.
