PraxisCat
Christine is a synthesist and multi-instrumentalist that has been exploring electronic instruments since she was seven years old. Born with sound->color synesthesia, Christine explores everything from noise, probabilistic rhythms, and modular expressions in her compositions and improvisations, to invoke abstract textures, colors, and moods. Not satisfied with just creating music, Christine spends time making DIY synthesizer modules, as well creating software instruments and effects with visual programming.

Human Food
Drawing influence from a wide array of genres, Human Food creates what sole member Michael Denny describes as "absurdist soundtrack music for no film". From dark mountain top vistas of icy synthesizer tones, to empty airport terminals of ambient drones, Human Food crafts vivid soundscapes with a variety of tools and techniques.

Plus experimental short films!

  1. Hudson River Landscapes-DIR: Patrick Tarrant
    Recorded from a 24th floor window on Broadway, Hudson River Landscapes maps the elevated terrain of Manhattan's Upper West Side where laborers and layabouts, while displaced from the city beneath them, and framed by the river behind them , function like secret agents in an unscripted spy drama.
  2. Windows and Clouds- Dir: Chris H Lynn
    Window cleaners dangle on a skyscraper in Shanghai. Their movements are accompanied by sailing clouds reflected in the windows.
  3. Those Inescapable Slivers of Celluloid - DIR: Jeremy Moss
    Part lyrical exploration, part structural landscape study – an abstract/personal Super 8mm collage documentary. Music-Olivia Block
  4. De Luce 1: Vegetare - DIR: Janis Crystal Lipzin.
    The colors and light of a garden are transformed by Janis Crystal Lipzin’s alchemical experiments with the film material and photochemical processes.
