|Still Life (almost) Another Day in Three Acts
A live audio, cinematic performance for a slow-motion
ambient Zombie movie. Still Life (almost) is a crawling detournment of
Jorge Grau's 1974 masterpiece Non
si deve profanare il sonno dei morti. Rather than focus on the
gore and horrific elements of the film, short clips re-shot from a television
screen are used to portray a world full of lonlienss, unrequited love,
and urban despair. The Zombie becomes a metaphorical vehicle for the critique
of a cannibalistic society which furthers the cycle consumption and decay.
The soundtrack is a similarly distorted and haunting interpretation, reminiscent
of numerous zombie and horror films.
