Karlheinz Stockhausen: "Gesang der Junglinge" (Song of the Youths) (1955-56). A piece of electronic music utilizing both synthesized and vocal sounds. The vocal syllables are derived from the "Song of the Youths in the Fiery Furnace" from Daniel. Unfortunately, due to the time constraints of youtube videos, the last couple of minutes of this beautiful and historically important work of Stockhausen,were deleted from this recording.

Now Playing in the YouTube Screening Room: http://youtube.com/ytscreenroom Craig Welch takes viewers inside a surreal, meticulously crafted world to meet a mysterious protagonist and his otherworldly visitor. In this surreal exposition, we meet a man, obsessed with control. His intricate gadgets manipulate yet insulate, as his science dissects and reduces. How exactly are wings attached to the back of angels? In this invented world drained of emotion, where everything goes through the motions, he is brushed by indefinite longings. Whether he can transcend his obsessions and fears is the heart of the matter. A film without words. Directed by : Craig Welch. Produced in 1996

Zdzisław Beksiński (24 February 1929 -- 21 February 2005) was a renowned Polish painter, photographer, and fantasy artist. He was born in the town of Sanok, in southern Poland. After studying architecture in Kraków, he returned to Sanok in 1955. Subsequent to this education, he spent several years as a construction site supervisor, which he hated. At that time, he became interested in artistic photography and photomontage, sculpture and painting. He made his sculptures of plaster, metal and wire. His photography had several themes that would also appear in his future paintings, presenting wrinkled faces, landscapes and objects with a very bumpy texture, which he attempted to emphasize (especially by manipulating lights and shadows). His photography also depicted disturbing images, such as a mutilated baby doll with its face torn off, portraits of people without faces or with their faces wrapped in bandages. Later, he concentrated on painting. His first paintings were abstract art, but throughout the 1960s he made his surrealist inspirations more visible. In the 1970s, he entered what he himself called his "fantastic period", which lasted up to the late 1980s. This is his best-known period, during which he created very disturbing images, showing a surrealistic, post-apocalyptic environment with very detailed scenes of death, decay, landscapes filled with skeletons, deformed figures and deserts. These paintings were quite detailed, painted with his trademark precision (particularly when it came to rough, bumpy surfaces). His highly-detailed drawings are often quite large, and may remind some of the works of Ernst Fuchs in their intricate, and nearly obsessive rendering. Despite the grim overtones, he claimed some of these paintings were misunderstood; in his opinion, they were rather optimistic or even humorous. His exhibitions almost always proved very successful. A prestigious exhibition in Warsaw in 1964 proved to be his first major success, as all his paintings were sold. In the 1980s, his works gained on popularity in France due to the endeavors of Piotr Dmochowski, and he gained significant popularity in Western Europe, the United States and Japan. Beksiński eventually threw himself into painting with a passion, and worked constantly (always to the strains of classical music). He soon became the leading figure in contemporary Polish art. Before moving to Warsaw in 1977, he burned a selection of his works in his own backyard, without leaving any documentation on them. He later claimed that some of those works were "too personal", while others were unsatisfactory, and he didn't want people to see them. The 1980s marked a transitory period for Beksiński. His art in the early 1990s consisted mainly of a series of surreal portraits and a series of crosses. Paintings in these series were much less lavish than those known from his "fantastic period", but just as powerful. In the latter part of the 1990s, he discovered computers, the Internet, and digital photography, a medium that he focused on until his death. Beksiński always executed his paintings and drawings in either of two manners, which he respectively calls "Baroque" and "Gothic". The first is dominated by representation, the second by form. Among the paintings produced during the past five years, those executed in the 'Gothic' manner have become more and more frequent, so much so that pictures in the other style have almost disappeared. The late 1990s were a very trying time for Beksiński. His wife, Zofia, died in 1998; a year later, on Christmas Eve 1999, his son Tomasz (a popular radio presenter, music journalist and movie translator) committed suicide. Beksiński discovered his son's body. Unable to come to terms with his son's death, he kept an envelope "For Tomek in case I kick the bucket" pinned to his wall. On 21 February 2005, he was found dead in his flat in Warsaw with 17 stab wounds on his body; two of the wounds were determined to have been fatal. Robert Kupiec (the teenage son of his long time caretaker), who later pleaded guilty, and a friend was arrested shortly after the crime. On 9 November 2006 Robert Kupiec was condemned to 25 years of prison, and his accomplice, Łukasz Kupiec, to 5 years by the court of Warsaw. Before his death, Beksiński refused a loan to Robert Kupiec.

Get this DVD and other Wegman titles at: www.microcinemadvd.com A definitive 2-DVD compilation of over 150 videos made by the artist William Wegman and re-mastered by him exclusively for ARTPIX in 2006. From the earliest black and white reel-to-reel tapes to the most recent digital color videos this collection has not been previously assembled and available on disc. It is an exhaustive archive of the innovative and influential, and often hilarious, performances of the artist both with and without his Weimeraner friend, Man Ray. Inspired by the oblique humor of the 1950s radio program Bob and Ray as much as by the atmosphere of experimentation in the art of the 1960s, Wegman created a cross-over form of visual art that had almost no precedent and that received favorable critical notice from a wide audience of art lovers. Wegman and ARTPIX has re-introduced some of the earliest clips that have not been available as well as produced definitive versions of other segments through restoration of the original tapes. Included are Spit Sandwich (1970), Reels 1-7 (1970-77), Gray Hairs (1976) and Reels 8 and 9 (1997-99) for a total running time of 3 hours and 56 minutes. Memorable sequences included are "Dog Duet", "Milk/Floor", "Massage Chair" and "Stomach Song." Included with the discs is a reprint of Kim Levin's essay from 1982 for an exhibition at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis titled "Wegman's Video: Funny Instead of Formal" along with a definitive chronology of the complete videos. The publication of this DVD coincides with the opening of the retrospective exhibition, William Wegman: Funney/Strange at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York (March 10-May 28, 2006).

OPEN AIR SHOW Prêt -- à -- porter (2007) The appearance, the look of somebody or something as perceived by a passerby who has a quick glimpse is at the centre of this performance. How would it look like if the clothes could demonstrate a person's mood, his emotions and the changes in mood he is subjected to in response to his surroundings? Prêt-à -porter is an effort to give flesh in these images, to visualize these concepts. To do so, we focused on the performers' costumes, the relation between performer and costume and the ability of both to transform into something different on stage. The performance is an extraordinary defile where instead of models, a number of significant moments in people's lives parade; but neither the moments not the people are ordinary. These are persons who dare to dream and have the power to materialize their dreams, to transform them into reality. And it is these moments of transformation that the audience witnesses: a kiss among a man and a woman makes the couple flourish and therefore, transform into a bouquet! In another case, a kiss among a swimmer and a frog makes them a couple. A sudden wind blow turns the ladies' heads on the one hand and makes a couple tweets full of joy. The transformations occur on stage through the transformation of the performers' costumes. This defile consists of 60 costumes that account for a number of funny, sweet, irritating, extraordinary and imaginary incidents parading in front of the audience the same way models parade in a fashion defile. Prêt-à-porter is a street theater performance which though can be staged in a venue as well. Concept - Direction: Antonis Koutroumpis Costumes: Maria Cataropoulou Music: Minas Emmanouil Lightings: Christina Thanassoula Performers: Olga Gerogiannaki, Giorgos Vrontos, Thenia Koutroumpi, Eleftheria Larda, Maria Skikou, Konstantinos Michail
