Video sampling and synchronized audiovisual counterpoint create a fusion of contact improvisation and musique concrete. A trio of dancers move through an empty industrial warehouse. Contact improvisation technique creates encounters between bodies and architecture. The sounds created by the dancers interactions with the space serve as concrete music. The video editing explores a counterpoint of synchronous, synchronized and asynchronous relationships between sound and image. The dancers dance to music made from the sounds of their own movements.

Created for Berlin Fashion Week, these six videos feature music composed 100% from the sounds of clothes. Each piece of clothing is transformed into an instrument. A necklace is a synthesizer; a bra strap is percussion; a pair of Doc Martens are kick drums. The project has a limited run microsite as well as a live performance debut at CAKE Studios Berlin.

House is a fast-paced videomusical crash-course in electronic dance music that transforms the early morning routine into a one-man dance party. DJ Scott Hardkiss demystifies house music genres as original house tracks are created directly from the rhythmic cutting of sound and image as one medium. Blurring the lines between a music video and documentary, the video is simultaneously entertaining and educational.
