Boy - Making Salad’s first single
Animated in stop motion and starring Milgrom’s own Dolly Breakfast, the video tells a short urban tale placed in a cyber analog setting. Under a light and entertaining surface it touches gently on the classic dilemma all ambitious pop musicians face – the desire for fame and its threat on authenticity.
DessertLand is the space between two source of light
DessertLand, 2008, 8 min single channel video animation.
DessertLand is the space between two source of light; the commander’s projector and the the moon light. The viewers are sitting with Shvil in the back of a command-car driving along the border of Israel. This movement from left to right is like a visual text of history that is being revealed by means of light while moving along a linear border-line. The lights are illuminating the deferent parts of a deserted landscape that exist along the fence line, separating what is inside and interior and what is outside and exterior.
An abnormal phenomenon occurs in an olive grove as one of the trees evokes an uprising. As this spontaneous protest spreads, a police squad rallies through the landscape in an attempt to suppress the uprising. Inspired by the ancient olive harvesting methods in which aggression and cultivation come together, the film portrays the absurdity of enforced ideologies and the impossibility of taming the wild.
A new musical group orbits Barcelona with a proposal that wouldn’t let you down. La Piccola Orchestra Gagarin lives up to its name in every way. It’s small because there are only three players, but it sounds like an original orchestra (with instruments tuned to that point). And “Gagarin” is a nod to history’s first cosmonaut launched into space, with whom they share the same uncertainty when they go up on stage, never rehearsed.
