Trigger: Flutter

TRIGGER is an audiovisual collaboration between musician/composer Stephan Meidell and Blank Blank Film. Hacking old, often obsolete equipment – an old Austrian Zither, analog synths, 16mm projectors, and mirrors – with trigger-based robotics.

For the release of the vinyl «CYCLES & CAUSALITY» on Ideophone Records, filmmaker Carlos Vasquez has made two stunning films during the pandemic. "Flutter" was filmed in December 2020.

The project’s visual concept - painting ink on transparent 16mm film triggered by music has been expanded, extracted, and exposed in a way only possible through the film format, and further intensified through dance. Instruments become bodies become movement become ink.
