Thollem Electric with Manucinema
Thollem forges intense sonic machinations to the exquisitely
devastating images of real-time manipulated projections of
Manucinema. These two artists have been working together
for many years on very different types of projects including the
documentary 'On Debussy's Piano' with Stefano Scodanibbio
and music videos for Tsigoti and Bad News From Houston as
well as live performances.
Tuia Cherici (IT/DE) - MANUCINEMA - develops filmed stories
made by recycling, animating and recording available materials
in the moment (stop-motion, collage, animated sculpture, mixed
techniques). Aesthetically intriguing, most of her works come
out by observing and molding the materials discovered
in her daily life.
Thollem Electric (US) has been traveling perpetually throughout
North America and Europe for years as a performer and
collaborator. Presently he's touring with a modified vintage
electric piano and analog effects (no looping).
