RE:VIEW | to draw some attention – preparing to release my third music album | tr2 men zen | it’s time for a re:view, here‘s a photograph taken approx. between 1979-81 playing my Fender Rhodes and Korg Delta. Dating is sure after the 1979 summer since there’s the “Rock gegen Rechts” sticker from the first open air in Frankfurt where I went on the back of the Rhodes. More soon…

FRAGILE ESQUIF, D 2011, 35mm, 1:1.85, color, sound, 17 min. – In endlos weißer Leere schwebt das Gerippe eines Bootes. Ein Mann sitzt darin. Er paddelt durch dies lichte Meer. Er hält Ausschau. Er zeichnet. Er dreht sich im Kreis. Er angelt im Nichts. Eine Flaschenpost taucht auf.

Dressed completely in white a man gets lost in a luminous void of space. His thoughts spin in spirals. All activity in this vast nothingness shows no result. When he finally settles in a boat for fishing a message pop up in a bottle…

IKILIIKKUJA – PERPETUUM MOBILE, D 2005, 35mm, 1:1.66, b/w, sound, 5 min. – Zwei Männer, eine Flasche, Schwarz und Weiß, Yin und Yang. Was für den einen leer, ist für den anderen voll. Von Markku Peltola, dem Hauptdarsteller aus Aki Kaurismäkis Film DER MANN OHNE VERGANGENHEIT, stammt die ebenfalls sehr reduzierte Musik

Two men, one bottle. Black and white. Yin and yang. What is empty for one is full for the other. Peltola who is the main character in Aki Kaurismäki’s film The Man Without A Past adds a place- and timeless folk music. With very few notes, it says all there is to say.

concept, photography, optical works: Thomas Bartels
music: Markku Peltola
production company: KAROFILM

MICHANEVOMAI – ICH ERSINNE EINE LIST, D 2004, 35mm, 1:1.37, color, sound, 9 min. 30sec. – Kinetische Skulpturen träumen Menschenbilder. Männer und Frauen umkreisen einander als blaue Schatten in endlosen Schleifen. Doch wenn sie schließlich im Kuss verschmelzen, ist das ein Traum: Ein Happy End, kitschig wie Kino.

2004, Prädikat ‚wertvoll’, Filmbewertungsstelle FBW

A poetic journey through a mechanical universe. Electric shadows of men and women circle around each other in endless loops. They finally meet in THE KISS. But it’s just a dream.

cinematographic twaddle: the happy end
