RHODES RACER (Bonneville GPS) 2007
<< RHODES RACER | Selected Video Still 1/4 >>
A meditation on subliminal datafields below the salt. Recursions race through 'flying' mathematical figurations, against a montage of fleeting shots --GPS-tracking lowriders, a startled pronghorn, pyrotechnics experiments, gushing groundwater. Shot on location, GPS Expo, Center for Land Use Interpretation, Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah, GPS Expo, July 2006. With music by Steve Nalepa, "Rhodes Racer" (2006). Steve Nalepa on "Rhodes Racer" : "The predominant sound comes from a Rhodes piano, offset against backward beats and bioacoustic atmospheres run through delay effects.  The 'Racer' in the title references the point about halfway through the song where I double the tempo of the Rhodes and drum parts.  It is subtle, but it reminded me of cars going around a racetrack, and I also liked the way 'Rhodes Racer' rolls off the tongue."
