Jacob's Toy

Video,sound by Fe-Mail
3' 20
Originally created for a collaborative compilation of sound and video artists. To my knowledge, the project was never released. I was paired with Norwegian noise duo Fe-Mail. The track is from their excellent album Syklubb fra Hælvete. The project is a sort of ironically literal approach to the visualization of sound. The non-sensical language of Fe-Mail's vocings were phonetically transcribed as best as possible. These "words" were then animated to reflect the gesture and movement of their utterance. The images and objects in the background help tell the story of Jacob's Toy. All of the objects appearing in the video are courtesy of Arford Antiques, Almena KS
