Envelope with Black Print
contains video stills cut from a video I shot featuring a live set
of power-electronics group BLOODYMINDED originally intended to be
edited into an installation but never quite finding the right cut.
This set dates from 2007 when Bloodyminded played with Carlos Giffoni,
Burning Star Core and Prurient at the Flowershop in Chicago.
Instead of being cut into a video the images were removed as stills
from the source footage, enlarged and placed into a new sequence that
emphasizes the dark setting and intensity of this unique group's intense
live performance. The title of this zine come from Mark Solotroff's
inimitable lyrics from the song "Genital Panic" off of the
album Gift GIvers and seeks to link the zine's process with its subject
one of removal and excision.
