With great pleasure I present Lost In Linear Valley. my first release for Undervolt and Co.
Lost in Linear Valley was intended to simply be a series of experiments using the combination of the Fairlight CVI and LZX Video synthesizer. However, while I set out to explore the fusion of thetools, I found myself falling into a new dimension where I no longer thought about the electronics in front of me but instead found a clear pathway to expression. I hope you enjoy it!
Also be sure to check out the rest of http://undervolt.co/. It includes incredible works from video artists from around the world and includes Cristopher Cichocki, Jimmy Joe Roche, Spectral Net (Birch Cooper, Brenna Murphy,Sabrina Ratté , Roger Tellier-Craig ), Johnny Woods, & Yoshi Sodeoka.
Many thanks to founder Yoshi Sodeoka and director Johnny Woods.

Mandala is 1977 an experimental film, made by Art Clokey. While an episode of Gumby can easily capture your heart, in this film we see the depths of his character manifest through the medium he knew best, clay.
Art Clokey on the creation of Mandala:
“Well, we shot that in our basement in Topanga. We had an 1,100 square foot basement in an A-frame on a hillside. It was perfect for our needs. My whole family worked on it, my daughter and Gloria’s daughter. That was our second marriage for both of us. She had a daughter and I had a daughter. They were both artistic, and my son and Gloria worked with the camera. So it was a family effort all in clay.”Mandala was to communicate “the idea of evolving our consciousness from primordial forms to human form, and then beyond the human to the spiritual and eternal. The theme was the evolution of consciousness: we begin in the mud and we just go out and up.
Afterwards, watch GUMBOT. All love to the memory of Art Clokey

On Video is a very interesting and inspiring television documentary mini-series about video art in Britain and Europe in the 1980's. It delves deeply into trying to define video art, interpreting media with broadcast tools, and the discovery that playback machines were play-with machines!
It also gives great insight into British television politics and the purpose of video art through interviews with video artists with varied disciplines. The bonus is a peek into the studios of video artists in the and their equipment. Watch it, learn, and drool.
Features interviews and full works of :
Sean Cubitt (Society of Education in Film & TV)
Marty St James
The Duvet Brothers

Vertical Roll is a seminal work. In a startling collusion of form and content, Jonas constructs a theater of female identity by deconstructing representations of the female body and the technology of video. Using an interrupted electronic signal — or "vertical roll" — as a dynamic formal device, she dislocates space, re-framing and fracturing the image. The relentless vertical roll, which repeats throughout the tape, disrupts the image by exposing the medium's materiality. Using her body as performance object and video as a theatrical construct, Jonas unveils a disjunctive self-portrait. As she performs in front of the camera — masked, wearing a feathered headdress, or costumed as a belly-dancer — her feet, torso, arms and legs appear as disembodied fragments. Subjected to the violence of the vertical roll and the scrutiny of the video mirror, these disjointed images of the body — including a photographic representation of a female nude — are even further abstracted and mediated. The incessantly jumping picture frame, with its repeating horizontal black bar, both confronts and distances the viewer, creating a tension between subjectivity and objectivity. The tape's staccato, insistent visual rhythm is heightened by the regular, sharp crack of a spoon hitting a surface, which resounds as if Jonas were smacking the video equipment itself. In the tape's final moments, Jonas confronts the viewer face-to-face in front of the aggressively rolling video screen, adding yet another spatial and metaphorical layer of fragmentation and self-reflection to this theatrical hall of mirrors.

Here is a lovely piece on Daphne Oram, the BBC Radiophonic Workshop's co-founder.
As a child in the 1930s, Oram dreamed of a way to turn drawn shapes into sound, and she dedicated her life to realising that goal. Her Oramics machine anticipated the synthesiser by more than a decade, and with it she produced a number of internationally-performed works for the cinema, concert hall and theatre. Daphne Oram was among the very first composers of electronic music in Britain.
