Eye’s Walk Digital Festival 2017 (Syros, Greece) Official Teaser

I’m pleased to design ‘Telescope’ in collaboration with musician Mark Nyos. Official teaser for the “Eye’s Walk Digital Festival 2017” of Syros Island (Cyclades, Greece) to be held from 27th to 29th of July.

 

 

Eye’s Walk Digital Festival is an innovative festival in Greece and the Balkans that connects the unique architectural legacy of Syros with public space and the community of the island, through the most modern art, video installation art. All of that is taking place in the cultural capital of Cyclades at Ermoupoli in the Aegean Sea.

Supported by Cinesthesia festival, Multitools and Digitribe Mediahouse.

Fahrenheit 4.33 | Film now available

Fahrenheit 4.33
Project by Fred L’Epee
Jeffrey Beach (Beachfront Productions)
Helicon Films

 

 

Genre Experimental
Year 2016
Duration 12mn. 43s.

 

“The contemporary mythology as the representation of a catharsis. Thousand variations from human vacuum. Translated by the definition of our identities which became amorphous. Stasis. The alteration of our psyche. Vertigo. An existential schism. The Labyrinth built by Daedalus. Death is not an end in itself. Perhaps an inertia. Without reproduction. Neither transposition”.

Helicon Films | Album “The Gas Heart” (Soundtrack for upcoming project)


Helicon Films
are proud to present the film soundtrack
for the next upcoming film project.

"The Gas Heart"

 

#Album “The Gas Heart”
#Sound by Surrealist gesture


The Gas Heart
is a three-act hoax; it will satisfy only industrialized imbeciles who believe in the existence of men of genius. Interpreters are requested to give this work the attention due a masterpiece such as Macbeth, but to treat the author – who is not a genius – with no respect AT ALL.
(Note: This work offers no technical innovation whatsoever.)

 

 


Credits

Released 14 February 2013
Constructed by JDD
Production/ Mix/ Master by JDD
Guitar on track #12 written/performed by Forrest Whitlow
