«Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms
of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems,
his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display
of simple and functional materials, these works articulate a tension between
the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life.
Carrying an emotional depth, the acoustic hum of natural phenomena
in Zimoun's minimalist constructions effortlessly reverberates.» bitforms nyc


«The sound sculptures and installations of Zimoun are graceful, mechanized works
of playful poetry, their structural simplicity opens like an industrial bloom
to reveal a complex and intricate series of relationships, an ongoing interplay
between the «artificial» and the «organic». It‘s an artistic research of simple
and elegant systems to generate and study complex behaviors in sound and motion.
Zimoun creates sound pieces from basic components, often using multiples
of the same prepared mechanical elements to examine the creation and degeneration
of patterns.» Tim Beck


«Zimoun creates complex kinetic sound sculptures by arranging industrially
produced parts according to seemingly simple rules. Using motors, wires, ventilators, etc.,
he creates closed systems that develop their own behavior and rules
similarly to artificial creatures. Once running, they are left to themselves
and go through an indeterminable process of (de)generation.
These quasi autonomous creatures exist in an absolutely synthetic sphere
of lifeless matter. However, within the precise, determinist systems
creative categorioes suddenly reappear, such as deviation, refusal and transcience
out of which complex patterns of behavior evolve.» Node10

from Kyle McDonald

A scattered array of fifty mirror balls reflect light from three projectors, filling a room completely
with small reflections, casting patterns that fill the visitor’s peripheral vision. Creating a curious
space that alternates between a meditative state, and an uneasy imbalance. An experiment
in combining a found object with computer vision to create a profound and unusual experience.

'Black Books' - Trailer



The complete series is available at www.screenpop.com

Black Books centers around the foul tempered and wildly eccentric bookshop owner
Bernard Black (Dylan Moran) Bernard's devotion to the twin pleasures of drunkenness
and wilful antagonism deepens and enriches both his life and that of Manny (Bill Bailey),
his assistant. Bearded, gentle, sweet and good, Manny is everything that Bernard isn't
and is punished by Bernard relentlessly just for the crime of existing. They depend
on each other for meaning as Fran (Tasmin Greig), their oldest friend, depends on them
for distraction. Black Books is a haven of books, wine and conversation, the only threat
to the groups peace and prosperity is their own limitless stupidity

Tiger Eyes - Trailer 
from Tashmoo Productions
on Vimeo.


Coming June 7 to Theaters and Video On Demand.
Tiger Eyes marks the first major motion picture adaptation from the work
of iconic author Judy Blume, whose books have sold more than
82 million copies in 41 countries.

Davey is a 17 year-old girl abruptly relocated by her grieving mother
to the strange “atom bomb” town of Los Alamos, New Mexico.
With the sudden and violent death of her father, the displaced Davey
no longer knows who to be or how to fit in.
Everything that once mattered suddenly seems insignificant.
But when she meets Wolf, a mysterious young Native-American,
while exploring the surrounding canyons, she feels he is able to see
past her pain and into her true self. The connection they make brings Davey
back from the edge and sets her on a journey from heartbreak and confusion
to transformation as she discovers love and life after tragedy.

Sherlock Holmes | English Opening



Lyrics
Help me, if you can, to find the smile that I lost
You're the only friend that can resolve all my problems
Sherlock Holmes, our detective so supreme
Sherlock Holmes, you're the only one for me
Search the darkest corners for the love that I lost
Cure the thing that's torn us from the happiness we knew
Sherlock Holmes, our detective so supreme
Sherlock Holmes, you're the only one for me
Well you've got all the qualities we look for in a man
And everybody wants to be like you
With style and intuition you can lend a helping hand
So lead us all to happiness when we can start anew
Help me find the killer of the peace in the world
You're the strongest pillar for a soul to rely on
Sherlock Holmes, our detective so supreme
Sherlock Holmes, you're the only one for me

The Recorded Voice Of Virginia Woolf

'This Is Water' | David Foster Wallace's 2005 commencement address as short film



In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the commencement address
to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. However, the resulting speech
didn't become widely known until 3 years later, after his tragic death.
It is, without a doubt, some of the best life advice we've ever come across,
and perhaps the most simple and elegant explanation of the real value of education.

We made this video, built around an abridged version of the original audio recording,
with the hopes that the core message of the speech could reach a wider audience
who might not have otherwise been interested.

However, we encourage everyone to seek out the full speech
(because, in this case, the book is definitely better than the movie).

Listen to the full speech here:

We sourced all the music tracks from a handful of great composers found online.
Here are the artists:

James Ellroy : 'It took me 6 published novels to earn a living as a writer..." | #mediabistroTV



Although best-selling novelist James Ellroy's journey to success was far from a cake walk,
he has a surprisingly cheery disposition about it. In today's media beat, Ellroy talks about
his recent memoir The Hillicker Curse, and details how his upbringing inspired his widely read
crime novels. "I had no family. I caddied at country clubs. It took me six published novels
to tenuously earn a living as a writer. But I don't view it as a struggle," he said.
