Lights, Camera & Sound: Disciples, a short film about the Malaysian Skinhead culture

I was excited to watch this documentary advertised on Instagram page of nowness. The name of this film is Disciples. With the recent surge in right-wing politics, it was only a matter of time when the term “Skinhead” would make it way on national headlines. I’m a fan of hardcore punk, black metal, experimental metal and grindcore, etc. There exist skinheads in the confines of … Continue reading Lights, Camera & Sound: Disciples, a short film about the Malaysian Skinhead culture

Lights, Camera & Sound: Post Cinema Discussion II (Digital Cinema)

Around 1970’s in Moscow, Andrei Tarkovsky was asked the question about an interest in creating abstract films. His response was there can be no such thing. Cinema’s most intrinsic function is to operate a camera that opens a shutter, begins rolling film, and recording the action set in front of the lens. Nothing more. Tarkovsky settled for this notion, nothing more. Well Tarkovsky, the 21st … Continue reading Lights, Camera & Sound: Post Cinema Discussion II (Digital Cinema)

I remembered when I heard of Roadburn back in the early 2000’s. Mainly, because of bands like Neurosis, Red Sparrows, Jesu, and Isis to name a few. The first music festival I ever went to was Lalapolooza ’91. I was 16 years old metal punker living in Cary, North Carolina. I never saw so many punks, freaks like me at one event – even, I … Continue reading Roadburn Festival: Two Decades of a Sonic Atom in Transmission……

Lights, Camera, & Sound: Post-Cinema, a Movement, Genre or Neo-Paradigm?

I was pondering a term to explicate the style of the existing cinema culture. Hence, whenever the term ‘Post-‘ is applied in art, music and film it usually refers to ‘after‘ or ‘in between periods.’ I am certain theorists – in this paradigm – are churning the preverbial engine to get their scholarly journals, books, and symposium in circulation to render a clear definition of … Continue reading Lights, Camera, & Sound: Post-Cinema, a Movement, Genre or Neo-Paradigm?
