“inside/outside” review on Film International

Film International did a review of one of my clips, let me share it with you:

Film Scratches: Odd Intersections – Inside/outside (DOGS VIII) (2014)

I am quiet touched by this, it nailed my intentions right to the spot… Thank you David Finkelstein and Film International for taking the time 😉

KAISAR “Serbian Death Polka” (official music video clip)

Well friends, let me take you to the dark side of eastern Europe propaganda folk. This is KAISAR’s new music video clip called “Serbian Death Polka”.

Speaking of found footage, this really is a find. An old (Serbian?) VHS tape, mixed together porn (the nasty kind of) and a Serbian nationalist propaganda music video, I did not hesitate a spilt second. The song praises Radovan Karadžic whom, let me remind you, is responsible for tens of thousands of barbaric killings – if you like (and have a good day) try googleling Srebrenica, it will ruin that day for good, so be warned.
The musical track is provided by an Serbian polkaganda trio of unknown identity or status (maybe the crowd can clear that up) and reworked by KAISAR who are:

MOMA & I – COOP / Official Music Video

Here is some Work I did with the MOMA. Their official music video “ALIVE”.

It was quiet a ride, and it was fun, shooting on Friedrichstraße during Karneval der Kulturen yet nobody gave a damn… guess that’s why I still love Berlin. So much freedom and creative potential… So enjoy and share if you care.

Doves (DOGS XII)

“Doves (DOGS XII)” deals with an estranged couple, either one part of it, unable to go on yet at the same time unable to leave. The romantic notion of everlasting faith and loyalty symbolized by the doves has become an unbearable annoyance.

Doves also relates to a very peculiar setting that is the Berliner Hinterhof (Berlin backyard) which can be a challenge of its own. Finally it is, like the other videos in the series a meditation on the human condition, the complexity of human interaction and the desire to overcome solitude – a desire so often left unfulfilled. Finally it is a nod to Prince obviously and one of his favourite songs of mine “When Doves Cry”.

The music to this video was contributed by KAISAR:

“Death of a cousin and other (slightly less morbid) pieces”

KAISAR are

Klaus Killisch: guitar
Richard Sylvarnes: textures
Enkidu rankX: synthetics

“Tomcat” is the twelfth part of a series of video-art shorts called DOGS specially dealing in relational miscommunication and the effect of technology on the human condition in general. The title DOGS refers to our animal instincts and emotions that, when suppressed, tend to erupt in an uncontrolled fashion. This again often results in war, violence, hatred and misanthropy / misogyny. The series tries to uncover what should remain hidden – those things we better not say or show…

Music for a dead cousin

KAISAR "Death of a cousin" cover

When I finally got together with my dear friends and colleges Klaus Killisch and Richard Sylvarnes to make some noise again, just as we had started, my mother called on my mobile and brought me the sad news: my cousin Jean-Pierre had just died. He was a great lover of 70ies rock and experimental music and I guess this in conjunction with my sad mood led me into this session back again.

I didn’t really listen too much to what I was performing, being deeply moved by the loss of a dear family member, but listening to it afterwards, it seems fitting. A dark ode to his life full of excess and wildness. So this is to you, Jean-Pierre Jacob. Hope you can find some meaning in all of this…
