Birds Build Nests Underground
Profile of the performer Birds Build Nests Underground:
Birds Build Nests Underground is a Prague-based trio working in the fields of found sound and vision. Their basic tools is a double DJ set and 8mm, 16mm, 35mm and KP8 film and slide projectors. Their goal is, however, not a standard DJ/VJ entertainment muzak and screensaving but a deep dive into the very nature of sound and image. The turntablists of the band – Petr Ferenc and Michal Brunclík – are manipulating records by keeping them off thein avers, placing stickers on them, cutting, scratching and piling them on turntable plates in order to maket all the „mistakes“ and coincidental sound events equally important to the recorded sound. Martin Ježek, the filmmaker of the band, treats (not only) found footage the same way as the turntablists treat their records: he juxtaposes, collages and edits the image to create a wholly new visual experience. Birds Build Nests Underground (BBNU) are not one of many bands that create „live soundtracks“ to an already existing filmwork. Their music and images interact, coexist and are created at the same time.
Started in 2003, since 2007 a trio of Petr Ferenc, Michal Brunclík, Martin Ježek.
