<div align="left"><font face="Arial"><span style="font-size:10pt">BACKGROUND:&#160;&#160;&#160; </span></font></div>
<div align="left"><font face="Arial"><span style="font-size:10pt">Founded and curated by Carol Goss as a sponsored project of the
New York Foundation for the Arts, Not Still Art began in 1996 when
four video artists (Goss, Walter Wright, Peer Bode, Bob Doyle)
from the 1970s gathered together in Cherry Valley, New York for a
public screening of&#160; their abstract and non-narrative video art.&#160; That
event evolved into the annual Not Still Art Festival International
Screening pimarily by word of mouth and e-mail relay.&#160;&#160;&#160; </span></font></div>
<div align="left"><br/>
</div>
<div align="left"><font face="Arial"><span style="font-size:10pt">The impetus was twofold:&#160; first, there was a need for a festival that
focused exclusively on abstract and non-narrative electronic
motion imaging with music/sound design; secondly,&#160; with the
internet and e-mail it was at last possible to reach many of the
international artists working in this form with a very small budget.&#160;&#160;&#160; </span></font></div>

<div align="left"><font face="Arial"><span style="font-size:10pt">Abstract and non-narrative work has never been easy to fund raise
for - mainly because it defies description - so try to write a grant
proposal!&#160; So the Not Still Art Festival has progressed with the help
of the artists, who contribute an application fee, and the
Experimental Television Center, which pays a stipend to traveling
artists from a Presentation Funds Grant (redistributed funds from
the New York State Council on the Arts) .&#160;&#160;&#160; </span></font></div>

DISCUSSION

Festival Review


Thanks to all the artists and musicians that participated this past
weekend in the 8th Annual Not Still Art Festival of non-narrative
and abstract electronic motion imaging and music/sound design.

Overheard during intermission:
"Several people said that they never get the chance to see this kind
of art because it is so rarely produced. Anthology Film Archives
(NYC) used to do it, but no more......"
"Artists get an opportunity to see and share which is important
because the work is typically created in extreme isolation."

***********>>>>>>><<<<<<<<************
LIVE PERFORMANCE:
::::Martijn Tellinga, attending from The Netherlands, opened the
Friday evening performance with sampled noise from Amsterdam
in concert with an impromptu processed video sampling of Smith
Street activity by Carol Goss.
::::Janene Higgins mixed graceful, luscious, swirling layers of New
York sites to the intricate electronic guitar and computer processing
of Elliott Sharp.
::::BopAnts finished us off with superb improvised electronic jazz
(Marc /electric-treated guitar, Mitchel Ahern/lid, John
Voight/electro-acoustic bass, Katt Hernandez/electric violin,
William Buchanan-drums). Walter Wright's geometric and staccato
shredded video was rendered live on his personally coded Targa
board.

***********>>>>>>><<<<<<<<************
On Saturday night the NSA INTERNATIONAL SCREENING
received applause after each piece.

::::Geoff Adams' delightful 'Birdbeat (Fugue)' opened and set the
theme for the first half of the program. The macho war of the
worlds fought at the birdfeeder was followed by Phyllis Bulkin
Lehrer's 'Moon Worshipers', which brought us subterranean, where
we could still hear the birds, but were sure the worms had the upper
hand.

::::William Brown's "Mexico Burning" was entrancing in its power
and simplicity - and lack of explanations - especially for the fire
eater-blowers, which we won't soon forget.

::::'passe-partout', the glorious abstract animation of Stephanie
Maxwell and constructed electronic voices, chimes and percussion
of Allan Schindler dazzled us with its variety and playfulness.

::::'L'anatomie du desir', visual montage by Dinorah de Jesus and
sound design by Gustavo Matamoros elicited sighs and gasps -
the connection between sex and parenthood couldn't be more
natural.

::::Kyra Garigue's 'Toilet' humourously transitioned us from the
bedroom to the institutional bathroom, halls, laboritories of
Slankard's Room Tone #1, which made raucus music of an empty
university building.

::::Kyra's 'Ice' cubes were crystalline and clinking beyond belief,
and led us directly into Carol Goss' 'Zwischenraum' which swept us
from warm to cold, fan to ice storm.

::::Brit Bunkley as succinctly as possible shared what could be
'Lost' and 'Found' if we lost it all. Bunkley's lost & found object
turns out to be a rubber duckie, and so it should come as no
surprise, that Jung-Chul Hur (video) and Vichaya Vatanasapt
(music), both from South Korea, put swans twitching to a calliope
song.

The second half of the program opened with John Power's
'Freteration', which thrusts the possibility of annihilation upon us,
followed by Kasumi's 'Jimmy' about a young boy who is annihilated
from within.
::::Lest we become morose, Bob Mataranglo's 'Venus Does Video'
whips us into arcade ambience, where annihilation is followed by
reincarnation. Sylvia Pengilly's 'Haunted Resonance' is the perfect
afterlife, with fractured cathedrals, echoes and cries.

::::'The Fall', by Martijn Tellinga and Sami Kallinen describes a
more existential and self conscious passing.

::::Edward Ramsay-Morin's 'In Here Out There' puts us into reaches
of space without leaving the Renaissance. And Stephan Larson's
'Duality (balance)' literally propels us into a light hearted abstract
space of twists and torques...

::::Reynold Weidenaar's 'Hang Time on Jones Street' brings us
back to earth, particularly Greenwich Village, where we see and
hear architectural appurtenances. We are then catapulted into
'Times Square', Muriel Magenta's highly collaborative computer
animation of our favorite light show.

::::Matt Costanza's (animation) and Kozue Jinnouchi's (music)
'Reverberations' closes the show with a tour de force of exotic
musical transitions and simple abstract graphics that act as a
sorbet after a feast.

Curator: Carol Goss

***********>>>>>>><<<<<<<<************
The International Screening was preceeded by a Saturday
afternoon of ARTIST/MUSICIAN PREVIEWS & TALKS.
Many secrets were revealed:

::::John Power, who attended from Melbourne Austrailia, explained
the dense layering of subliminal images in his :90 piece,
"Freteration", including a jelly fish which no one could identify.

::::Kitao Sakurai represented media artist Kasumi. When asked
how long he has known her, he replied, "She gave birth to me." He
then proceeded to tell us that she had a concert career as a
classical lutist under a different name. He described Kasumi's work
process and studio environment, which is the environment he grew
up in.

::::We discovered that the beautiful computer animations and
musical compositions created regularly by Stephanie Maxwell &
Allan Schindler are not the only thing they collaborate on. Their
two sons attended and we found that they regularly match up their
respective students at Eastman School of Music and Rochester
Institute of Technology for joint projects.

::::Phyllis Bulkin Lehrer read the tea leaves for us - when we were
sure it was mulch! Her preformance-like cell frame animation was
all done digitally.

::::Reynold Weidenaar showed us version #3 of 'Hang Time on
Jones Street', which this time includes a clarinet track. The base
track is composed entirely of three short location sound samples.

::::Kyra Garigue, another trained classical musician, turned
photographer, is now messing with all her household appliances.
intrigued us all with her startling close audio capture and musical
rendering of ice and flush.

::::Bob Mataranglo revealed that the Venus of Wildendorf makes
frequent appearances in all his work - not just his piece, 'Venus
Does Video'.

INTERNATIONAL SCREENING:::$10. at the Door

Each year the NSA Festival Call for Entries taps into an
international collective unconscious and a self-declared theme
arises. One year it was water. Another year it was bio-
engineering. This year there are six programs that refer to
birds, either in imagery or sound. To give you an example of
how differently three artists treat this theme:
Geoff Adam's "Birdbeat (Fugue)" is a jazz war at the
birdfeeder, great original music with real birds fighting for turf
in sync. Jung-Chul Hur and Vchaya Vatanasapt's "Morning
Cuisine" (from South Korea) features swans tweaked to a
catchy dance. In contrast, Martijn Tellinga and Sami Kallinen's
"The Fall" (from The Netherlands) is nearly abstract, but the
text, which at one point declare's "His back muscles ache as he
is flapping his imaginary wings" draws our attention to the bird
that is falling...
You will be amazed and surprised at the work screened -
>>>Look forward to seeing you there!
