"The DVD consists of three movies with the visuals from DeKam and the music from Pure. Together they tell abstract narratives by improvising, sampling and carefully re-working their recordings into new compositions. Each piece of the trilogy holds its own unique style, and are technically superb. As a whole, the trilogy acts as a strong, dark, complimentary statement. This DVD is the result of Pure and deKam's teamwork initiated by the French association "Meeting", a joint effort between Rennes' College of Art, the Visual Arts department of Rennes University and le Collectif Jardin Moderne, who hosted a residency for the two artists in summer of 2003. Pure is currently living in Vienna. Besides caring for his own label dOc, he has released on several other labels like Mego, Staalplaat and Praxis. After having released around 20 vinyls since the beginning of the 90s which were deleted for years recent CD releases from 2003 made all the different projects available again. Johnny Dekam is an video artist based in upstate New York. He is a member of DYAD, the critically acclaimed live project with Swiss artist Jasch, He frequently performs both solo and as a VJ for major acts. DeKam is the founder and principal architect behind VIDVOX, purveyors of fine video software. He has recently moved on from VIDVOX to focus on new projects at the intersection of video art, research and performance." (label info)
