Ran Slavin (Israel)

Ran Slavin is a cross media audio-visual artist from Tel Aviv. Working with experimental cinema, digital and acoustic music, video art and live video and sound performances. Working between the contemporary art world and the experimental music scene, his visual work has been described as intense urban surrealism. His audio work is a culmination of processed acoustic sources, error music and sonic panoramas often guitar/piano based/derived. His videos, music and live performances present audio-visual realms unfolding between the urban and the abstract, super impositioning the real and hyper real, real time streams of morphing dream worlds. His diverse catalogue of videos blurs distinctions between present and future, documentary digital and fiction and presents a hybrid of moving images, stills in motion, at times on the threshold of digital painting, intense suspension and altered states. Collaborating with the labels Sub Rosa [Brussels] Cronica [Portugal] Mille Plateaux [Frankfurt] AK Duck [Jerusalem] among others, has produced solo and collaborative cd's, soundtracks for various film and dance ensembles and performing/screening his work internationaly.
