dolphins into the future

"this is the soundtrack for a film, created for Silver Ghosts, an audio-visual company based in The Hague, The Netherlands. "as canções de pele" is a documentary, tracing the songs and movements of an imaginary volcanic island. it's a film in four chapters, sung by the goddess Pele. as being a Hula Dance, personating certain shapes, forces and lines. the footage was shot between september and december 2011, on the Açores Archipelago. the film was edited, mixed, and provided with a soundtrack, march 2012.  

note: since we felt that the "audio version" of this release should remain reminiscent to the video experience, we've chosen to not use the original recordings, yet offer the actual sound from the VHS tape. including all its inperfections, its hiss, buzz, and its little cuts, clicks, silences et al."

visuals: Wietske Van Gils, Lieven Martens Moana (hd camera, vhs tape, effect processor)
sound: Lieven Martens Moana (fm synthesizers, midi module, sampler, field recorder, tape recorder)
released by Silver Ghosts.
