the french duo gangpol & mit is well-known
for its unparalleled symbiosis of vision and sound, following a unique work
process. starting in 2002, guillaume castagne and sylvain quément have
continuously created their own universe of deviant cartoons and technicolor
anthems. guillaume emails some graphics to sylvain, who then composes a melody
and sends it back - or sylvain coughs up a tune and has guillaume translate
it into animated worlds. the table-tennis collaboration continues until their
graphic and sound collisions have reached perfect synchrony.
for the first
time you can now enjoy this unique love-hate relationship between sonic and
visuals on your own home entertainment system!
the book presents the visual worlds as original
movie posters and scene shots of the most thrilling episodes, while the new
tracks offer sceneries straight from doomsday. melodies crush and rebuild in
various styles, mixing sources dug out deep from a huge digital sandbox: coconut
swings, cinematic italian synths, ghetto can sounds and imaginary folklores.
behind the technicolor frenzy and diy entertainment, an absurd and uncanny
dimension unfolds: hit-and-run canine casualties, technological voodoo
apocalypse and terrorist confetti exploding everywhere. the geometrical bestiary
is being hunted around the globe and a feast of techno-cannibalism is celebrated
on the "island of da motherboard slaughter."
gangpol & mit have toured extensively
through europe, asia and the americas, including concerts in new york, montreal,
mexico, argentina and japan. they continue to contribute to exhibitions, run
workshops for artists, designers and children.
