    Chronomops opens up a shimmering, colorful space that is simultaneously an excess of color, a frenzy of perception, and a pop carousel. An abstract architecture of vertical color bars is set in endless rotation, whereby the modules and building blocks fly around themselves, and the entire system likewise rotates. The forced movement forms a digital maelstrom whose suction pulls the observer deep into it. Chronomops, accompanied by music from General Magic, which is also composed as a slip stream, shows what the pop psychedelics always knew to be true: that the “other” side looms right around the corner of the perfect groove, a labyrinth of colors and forms set in irregular motion, which merely has to be raised from its invisibility and liberated from its incomprehensible state. Electronic music’s inner life has seldom appeared so colorful and captivating. (Christian Höller; Translation: Lisa Rosenblatt)

    Chronomops was first released on Crónica (PRT) “VA – Essays on Radio: Can I have 2 min. of your time?” It received first price in 2006 at diagonale 06 for best innovative, experimental, animation or shortfilm 2005/2006.
