Electro Choc 3 Festival : Cinema Fellini / Le MaTriCe
VilleFontaine, France 04/2008

An original & remix work using excerpts from Jim Jarmusch's film, Coffee & Cigarettes, for Electro-Choc 3 Festival. The film consists of several short stories between two people having coffee and cigarettes.

I love this film! It also inspired me as a video jockey (VJ) because I thought it would be cool to mix the stories with one another. So I proposed this idea to the collective since we were brainstorming for the festival. It was accepted and I developed it further as we started working on it.

Since there were three video artists (me being one of them) and three musicians, I decided on three screens side by side for a video artist + musician team. We also videotaped our own personal coffee & cigarette stories and included them in the show. There are more details about this show, but I'll stop here.

Note: This remix is also in conjunction with the Coffee & Cigarettes Table Installation and a jam session with the BTS of Bourgoin-Jallieu (see both videos below). We also performed Coffee & Cigarettes Remix at Cafe-Lecture in Lyon (05/2008). My remix of Jack Shows Meg his Tesla Coil was shown at The Corridor, Discussions on Film, London, England (08/2009).

Artist collective Le MaTriCe: Benoit Voarick, Pascal Caparros, Cyril Darmedru, Sebastien Eglème, Emmanuel Martin & Julie Meitz. Special thanks to the collective for trying to understand my bad French at the time ;-)

Tools: Adobe Creative Suite + Resolume Avenue 3.1.0 + Creative Keyboard + Live Lab's Tablet 2 Midi + Sima SFX-9 Mixer
