audio/video ~ 9:15
3rd video collaboration with Michael Fleming

from Michael's website:
Never Never Land is about our obsession with physical perfection, our domination and wanting to control everything. Not only being the perfect human being but also creating him. Chance is replaced by choice.
This idea that all is possible and engineerable arises the belief that even our fantasy is realizable. ‘Shaping my life’ this becomes our individual main goal; our life as a project.
In our greedy 'me-itis' we want to fully explore ourselves, create our ultimate dream. Our demand to be 'Homo Perfectus', being Superman, the DIY-made Uber-God 3.0!


In Never Never Land, the music explores two main ideas: transformations and mappings.  Transformation occurs both as the vertical layering of different versions of the same thing and as the horizontal morphing of one palette into another.  Mappings exist from audio into audio and from visual into audio.  Some structures are modeled after already composed materials, using smaller components of the same thing to re-imagine the existing material as new material.  Additionally, many of the layers of sound come as thorough mappings of various forms of visual data, including pixel values, orientation of objects and mass of objects, with these values scaled and then fed into various audio processes as a way of allowing the visuals to drive the auditory ideas through time.
