International film, art, poetry and music cross-over festival.
EYE Film Institute Netherlands presents the Film Biënnale, featuring unique film events at special venues throughout Amsterdam from 7 to 11 April. The programme was created in collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art in New York, which will present a selection drawn from its internationally renowned film collection.

The Film Biënnale showcases film productions which blur the boundaries between different artistic disciplines, merging music, art, theatre and poetry. The festival kicks off with the screening of The Man with the Camera (1929) by Russian film pioneer Dziga Vertov. The Michael Nyman Band will perform the soundtrack as a live accompaniment.

Great stuff from Baltimore's Double Dagger , really fresh sounds with a bunch of very cool influences , its a post-punk with more intensity that could sound something like The Fall with The Death Seat

"Double Dagger’s new EP, Masks, continues in this vein, taking up where their acclaimed 2009 full length, More, left off. Masks presents a series of vignettes, ranging from acerbic to facetious to self-reflective, on the facades we build within our lives. Masks contains some of Double Dagger’s most catchy songs to date, yet characteristically the tone of the album encompasses the abrasive and sarcastic as well as the upbeat and closes with a surprisingly delicate instrumental. The EP was recorded by the band using a necessarily DIY setup, and like More, manages to capture the loudness and energy of Double Dagger’s explosive live performances." thrill jockey

A phosphene is a physical sensation of light caused by something other than light: a physical pressure on the eyeball, an electrical or magnetic field, or a chance firing of cells in the visual system.

A poly-rhythmic paradise of liquid harmonics to be poured into the ears. jahcoozi's music is as original as the phonetic imagination of their name.

those behind this creative alliance are song-writer /mc/singer/stage-animal sasha perera (london/sri lanka), beat-freak producer robot koch (germany) and the bass-embodying sound-tech fetishist oren gerlitz (tel aviv, israel). both musically and culturally speaking, jahcoozi are a mash up operation who have consistently managed to deliver their very own mongrel style of electronic pop music.

the band have just finished off their 3rd album which will come out on 19th april 2010 on ellen alien's berlin label bpitch control. Bpitch

It's been a full year since Will Oldham was in Rock Island for this encore taping. It was St. Patrick's Day circa 2009. There was a parade happening nearby, with all kinds of non-Irish folk wearing green hats covered with sparkly glitter and shamrocks. It was relatively warm, under a sunny sky and we had burritos and specially ordered coffees and teas waiting for the Bonnie Prince Billy and his band. Oldham had been here about three years prior to this visit and to this day, we are still eternally grateful for his generosity and the kind words he's spoken to others about what Daytrotter is. He was here and gave us a shot when we were nothing and we couldn't be more honored than to have had this modern master as a repeat offender.
