Since setting up his own label Istheway in 2015, Verona-based producer Shinoby has been pushing deviant floor-aimed material through multiple formats, be it in the form of proper twelve-inch wax with support from choice remixers Madteo, MGUN, Hieroglyphic Being, Samo DJ, Tzusing…, or chopped-and-screwed hip hop-style mixtapes.
This time, Omar Contri is back with a very special project, having recorded the soundtrack to Paolo Gioli‘s ‘Film Stenopeico‘ – an out-of-time audio-visual ode to the frailty of being. As its title imply it is a film made using the pinhole technic and based on images shot over a sixteen-year period, from 1973 to 1989. The DVD will be available for direct order from Shinoby himself.
Gioli’s work has been shown on an international level, gracing a wide scope of art institutions and festivals amongst which the Centre Pompidou in Paris, New York MoMA, the Art Institute of Chicagon, San Francisco MoMA, Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie of Arles, New York Film Festival, Cinémathèque Française, TIFF, Rome’s Palazzo delle Esposizioni… to name a few.
Film Stenopeico (dedicated to Rainer Gemma Frisius) “L’uomo senza macchina da presa” is scheduled for release in DVD format on 22 September 2016.
