The Mirror Neuron (poetry mix) is an art rock film divided into three vignettes that investigate complexities of interconnection beneath an awakening of the sun. Mirror neurons activate when we observe the actions of others. They allow us to empathize through feeling, not thinking. Their discovery confirms our evolutionary path to see others as similar to ourselves. The Mirror Neuron celebrates our biology through a series of musically driven gestures intended to activate our neural networks.

RÉPÉTITIONS is a french expression that names the act to repeat something, it’s also the word used for rehearsals.
2 dancers, a choreographer and the director play their own role in this short movie showing a team in the act of making. Micro and meta directions given by the choreographer and the director are being appropriated by dancers, making those indications an expression of their own. And, in between the execution of those tasks is emerging a short term system of affects and common energies that paths the way to a deeper mutual field of understandings.

Radar Vienna INTERNATIONAL Competition

What happens to us in the moments of our lives when we go in one direction instead of another? How small a motion would create waves in our lives?
‘There Alone’ takes a magical realism turn and asks: What happens if we split apart at that moment, and became two?
And how does that sound with two scores?
Version 1 score by Elizabeth A. Baker

PIANO DECONSTRUCTED is a video by Media Artist and Filmmaker Clara Jacquemard and Noise Artist Johanna Schlömicher. In front and behind the camera Johanna Schlömicher acts with a piano. Proof of a long lasting relationship, the instrument was declared un-tunable.
Memories are being processed, grief is a challenging process. Expectations and desires one has for themselves are being projected upon and the piano can become a snarling monster. Despite of impressions of unvoluntary adaption, the bare instrument opens up new space. The camera between documentary and performance, new variations are being explored.

Collaborations can be fruitful, fitful, and sometimes both. The opponent or obstacle is sometimes internal. This dance for camera piece is an exploration of a lifelong collaboration (and constantly shifting relationship) with my dance partner, Gravity. Mostly predictable, not always kind, I accept the challenge to dance with you again.

It’s a self-examined process for assess your present time. In the regular bass sound surround space, you could find there’s a few teenagers are having a madness house party, and there’s a girl awake but exhausted for being there. There’s a slightly smog or light gently but regularly move in the space. The smog represented a spiritual inside a space. It could be the spiritual from you or others. It’s like you are just in a conference or a party and suddenly there’s something pull your spirit away from your body. It makes you look at yourself in a different angle, but you’re still in the group. What would you do and what’s the connection between you and others?
If the smog was another you – a same existence from another world to look at your body in this group full of chaos and desired. However, there’s nothing you can changed as a member in this group. All you can do silently look down at your body, and move away quietly.
