Small Room tango is an experiment in videomusical technique usingnothing but the synchronous sounds and images captured in a pianopractice room.

Intended merely as a proof of concept of some ideas I had back in thewinter of 2003, this piece went on to be featured in the Best of Optronica, Best of Cologne OFF II and numerous other short film and videofestivals. It was finally published on DVD by Raum für Projektion in2007 as part of Loop Pool On Ice, commissioned by the 53rdInternational Short Film Festival Oberhausen.

Special thanks to my producer, cousin and camera man Cory Choy.

Anyone who has attempted this kind of video-sampling-whilst-letting-the-audio-determine-the-structure will know just howextremely bloody difficult & fiddly it all is. Hats off big time,then, to Gabriel Shalom, who not only makes it look natural & easybut even squeezes poetry from it.
