You Have Bad Taste in Music
Eman Laerton, USA 2004-05, ca. 30 min.
Eman Laertonís episodic productions follow a standard pattern: go to a big show, like Christina Aguilera or Korn concerts and, as a one-man-show and cyber missionary, confidently confront the fan-mob with a dose of reality: taste is not necessarily to be found in places where a huge crowd gathers.
Charlemagne Palestine, USA 1976, 16 min.
An example of the early ad-hoc video work of Charlemagne Palestine is Island Song
. With a camera on his motorbike, Palestine takes a long single shot of an island, combining his voice with the engine sound to create a rhythmic drone, whose escapist phrasing is equally exemplary of his Gesamtwerk.
