Cloud Sequence Live home concert film, Tussen mens en meermin.
This is Cloud Sequence's debut Live Home Concert Film: 'Tussen mens en meermin (somewhere between human and mermaid)'
The film shows a Live musical performance of the electronic musical duo Cloud Sequence, and travels within the digital and live realm to create an atmosphere and mood where immateriality and materiality meet.
The imagary is inspired by Renee Magritte’s painting ‘the collective invention’. The work depicts a surreal creature, a reversed mermaid, that represents his mother that has drowned herself when he was a child. His reality becomes a surreal display for the viewer.
The work is representative for loss and confusion. Is reality immitating surreality, or does surrealism immitates reality? A concept and experience that is kneeded with in the music and images of the film. Somewhere between grieve and acceptance, somewhere between human and mermaid.
Filmed and recorded in the Cloud Sequence backyard in Mparntwe/Alice Springs in collaboration with Drip Focus Films.
