This is not Cinema, 20 de julio en Barcelona

This is not Cinema

Este jueves día 20 de julio en Crater-Lab, This is not Cinema, una sesión con algunas de mis películas experimentales, abstractas o la etiqueta que más os guste ponerle a este tipo de cine.

La entrada cuesta solo 5 euros e incluye una consumición. La sesión dura más o menos una hora, pero seguramente hablaremos un poquito y demás, así que quizá se alargue a hora y media o lo que dé de sí la charla…

Algunas películas son found footage, otras animación abstracta y otras experimentos que podrían entrar en varios géneros distintos. Un poco de psicogeografía, un poco de data bending, un poco de motion graphics y mucho flicker.

¡Os espero!

Framework Radio #503: 2015.03.15 [blanca rego]

Today Framework Radio has published #503: 2015.03.15 [blanca rego], which is my third rain remix—the first one is unpublished, the second one was made for Détour.

In this case, all sound recordings are from Galicia (mainly A Coruña) and Catalunya (mainly Barcelona), the two places were I’ve lived during long periods of time—in fact, the podcast starts with a recording made at my childhood/teenage bedroom and ends with a recording made at one of my last places at Barcelona, the only flat where I’ve lived alone.

You can listen to the podcast and find more information about it at Framework Radio.

Invisible Cities

“Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears, even if the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules are absurd, their perspectives deceitful, and everything conceals something else.”

Invisible Cities
, Italo Calvino.

The confusions of free will without a clear destination

“Many who’ve written about mazes and labyrinths distinguish between the two of them. Mazes, including most garden mazes, have many branchings and are made to perplex those who enter, whereas a labyrinth has only one route, and anyone who stays with it can find the paradise of the center and retrace the route to the exit. Another metaphorical moral seems built into these two structures, for the maze offers the confusions of free will without a clear destination, the labyrinth an inflexible route to salvation.”

Wanderlust: A History of Walking, Rebecca Solnit.
