a tribute to John Peel




oh John from ola rek on Vimeo.



late in the 2010 i made this little film - a tribute to john peel - as an answer to the "eclectic peel" show put on by podcart in glasgow. giorgos created wonderful soundtrack for it that made up for all the technical slips. abi with ingrid built a set furnished with white objects, radios, tapes and paintings. the installation looked really good, unfortunately god of technology was not on my side. first there were these terrible difficulties to put the film together, with programs crashing every two minutes, then before the exhibition opening tv with my film refused to live any longer. but here it is, kind of a wasted project, with good intentions and really great sound!
