Zeitguised’s interpretation of „The Zoo“ (Funkstoerung) is a lighthearted piece that affirmates the ease of synthetic constructions against the heavy, serious notion of established notions of images, including the prevalent and unquestioned photorealism in the computer graphics industry itself.
The piece visualizes the track’s intricate layers of sounds (conceived to be a lullaby) by combining the glitchy stop motion style of Alex Rutterford’s ‘Gantz Graf’ (Autechre) with photoreal rendering, glowing surfaces and bare polygon errors.
Familiarly dull and generic, the environment of unappreciated places offers a perfect backdrop for a vivid zoo of machines mutating. They inhibit a technologically explicit world, where they are part of an ever evolving stream of becoming in accidental recombination and distorted proliferation. Their busy self-perpetuation creates gentle monstrocities and monstrous poetry.
