November 17-23 it will be part of the OFF and Free Film Festival in Seoul Korea. I can't read the program so I don't have any more details but if you are in a position to go, maybe you can. If you do, please let me know how it went. I can see the images and it looks like there's a bunch of cool stuff, especially works by Max Hattler. Thanks to the organizers for the invitation.
credits: Direction and Video by Scott Draves and the Electric Sheep, Music by Kenji Williams, Sitar by Mark Deutsch. In a turn-about compared to the usual process of making "visual music", Scott produced the animation first, and then Kenji scored the music to follow, like a movie soundtrack.
synopsis: The Electric Sheep is a cyborg mind. It harnesses the
collective intelligence of 450,000 computers and people ti create
abstract art with mathematics and Darwinian evolution. The result is
seamless, organic, and infinite. "The Firebird" is an homage to
Stravinky's ballet, but now light and artificial life dance with
humanity. Our universe started with a fiery explosion -- the big bang
-- and through the acceleration of technology we are headed into
another singularity, and headed for our rebirth.
