People Like Us (Vicki Bennett) b. 1967
People Like Us & Ergo Phizmiz - Magic (2010)
Duration 5'25" minutes
From The Keystone Cut Ups (2010)
The Keystone Cut Ups is a live performance that combines video-collage with an original musical score, created using sampling and live instrumentation, to explore the aesthetic, contextual and stylistic relationships between early silent-comedy and early avant-garde cinema.
Using the influence of slapstick comedy on the Surrealists as a starting point, the piece takes us on a madcap journey, combining the techniques and popular imagery of the two genres.
The Keystone Cut Ups is also available as an album-length DVD on Illegal Art.
