Year: 2003

A visual and sound composition constructed exclusively from contemporary advertising sampling.


Synopsis

Film-music. A twenty-five-minute film by the Berlin band Column One: A roller-coaster ride through contemporary advertising and media images. The filmmakers catalogue individual situations and, with the gradual examination of details and miniature time loops (to a merciless techno rhythm), they undertake a journey beneath the surface of communication to try to understand the goals of advertising designers. The filmmakers often dissect their material into the tiniest possible fragments of information: from the fragments then come rhythms, images, and a new message. The film could be seen as a composition from the era of club electronics and the dance scene; it also seeks to minutely examine life values, needs, desire and emotion in media images.

About the director

Column One, the collective who made this film, is a Berlin-based post-industrial and ambient band focusing on music and the treatment of other forms of media. One of its members is Christoph de Babalon, who heads the music label Digital Hardcore and who appeared on stage before performances by Radiohead during their 2001 tour. Column One released a joint album with British industrial classic Genesis P. Orridge. The most recent of many releases is called The Audience Is Sleeping (2002).
