‘Seamless’ is a compositional performance mediated through the lens of two video cameras. Jump cut edited, what starts as aural documentation evolves into an electroacoustic composition. ‘Seamless’ objectifies the faceless entertainer, dislocating the event from its history. The title ‘Seamless’ makes reference to kintsugi, the ancient Japanese art of fixing pottery with lacquer resin seams, whilst also winking ironically at the virtuoso dance music DJ in his / her endeavour to make the transition from one record to another imperceptible. Its inspiration extends from Vaudeville to Metzger’s 1959 manifesto ‘Auto-Destructive Art’, from the unpredictable humour of Fluxus concerts, to contemporary laptop electronica.
