The first edition of BSB at Spektrum will feature two different sets of connected short films:

1. “Glitch Is Fucked” (see below for playlist)
… or should that read ‘Glitch Is Fucking Great!’? We’re not sure. Herein we will explore those visions which will either glorify or lay waste to the so-called Glitch Movement. Get ready for epileptic blasts of computer graphics; rainbowing mushrooms of data corruption; analog synaesthesia processes; documents of pseudo-science; propaganda for non-existent conspiracies; classic early-internet viral weirdness; found videos from unknown sources; and maybe the odd cartoon.

2. “Music is Fucked Too”
It’s a lot like the first one, except you can nod your head and talk if you want to.

May your video life contain flashing lights!

Presented by Big Screen Brutals and Spektrum.

Anime = Seizures

Looking at TV shows that caused photosensitive seizures:

Finding the original clips seems to be quite tricky (in Germany, on the Internet) – like they became instantly taboo once a seizure was reported. I would love to see the originals in full resolution. This will have to do:

And then I found this on a somewhat related AV-techno-culture trip:

EDIT: and…

Masaaki Yuasa – Mind Game (2004)

This film is a great mix of constantly changing animation styles. And this ‘changing trick’ is used to it’s full effect when the protagonist meets ‘God’:

Although the animation is wild and wonderful, while watching Mind Game I started to wish that the music was somehow more integrated into the film. This scene remedied this:
