North London V-tard splicing beauty to the beats



Cafe 1001 was pretty buzzing for a Monday night in January when Dr. Mo‘s occasional live AV night Electrovision set up shop in the back bar on the 12th. I grabbed a few words each with video lovelies neones, Bopa, Oli Sorenson, Pikilpita, Prickimage, Kodek, Mowgli, Subpixel, and DJ Silverio Funk in between some accomplished live AV performances by Mo himself, *spark, Fade In Fade Out and Mowgli. Footage should be up on Mo’s Vimeo channel imminently.

As usual, a sociable night with some of the most interesting and prolific live video artists in the city mixing with new faces and cooking up new collaborations. Of the full-time AV artists I spoke to, none seemed too perturbed by current economic events as far as work is concerned. It could be that the best parties happen while Rome burns.

This week I took my scissors to Ken Loach’s Poor Cow (excellent, moving and surprising) and Mary Harron’s The Notorious Betty Page (it would appear they don’t know anything about her at all other than she stripped and jiggled – “it ain’t hurtin’ nobadeh so wuss the harm in thay-et?”) for Be @ Proud, which was the Guardian’s number 1 pick of the clubs this week. See you there this Saturday at the Horse Hospital in Camden, or at Koko on Friday for Club NME…
