« Ghost Track » (Left screen)
A double screen video & sound installation by RadioMentale. To be played as a loop, and projected, by night, on trees, or very old city buildings.
This installation creates a ghostly, surreal, narrative and poetic sound & visual environment, using images mainly taken from silent films from the 30’s and surrealist films from the 20’s (« Sunrise » & « Faust » by Murnau, « The Fall of the Usher House » by Jean Epstein…). Forgotten faces from the past, faces from dead actors and sometimes dead musicians, who seem to communicate beyond space and time, appear in this kind of meta movie.
The idea is to create, here with film and sound, a very dreamy and immersive space, where fragments of fiction, echoes of forgotten melodies, parts of our common cultural memories (here, cinema) and textured sounds create an effect of a broken narrative work, which has a powerful effect on the perception and imagination of the listener.
