7. Same Place (Eps cut)
When a couple of year ago all the TV channels showed news about a terrorist
act, I was absolutely frustrated since I could not record these magnificent
pictures anywhere except my own memory. The outstanding mesmerizing scene of a
global historical event turned into a series of news blocks chaotically
broadcasting street panic, smashing airplanes, falling twin towers, exploding
tons of dust, New York smoke panorama... I witnessed the calm and secure
"doll-like" life of millions of people turned into dust, the very idea of
potency and invulnerability (cultivated in all the super-powers) was smashed
by the cruel and daring terrorist act. I saw my relatives growing pale as they
called their friends in New York and there was no answer...
I could go on forever, but do I really have to? Watching this video, I
traveled two years back in time, remembering all that panic on TV and among
myself. The music composed by CYCLOTIMIA to the clip (made up of TV recordings
from CNN, BBC and EuroNews broadcasts) is absolutely appropriate. "One day in
wasteland" is a perfect soundtrack to the show: it's magnificent, it's sad -
as if it were carefully supporting and commenting on the show.
It's absolutely natural to ask whether or not this is a cynical work, does it
harass those who were touched by the tragedy? I personally do not think so.
The movie does not make you happy, but it impresses. It creates a unique
atmosphere which urges you to see it over and over again, like a memorial.
The CD also contains a bonus, "Same Place (Eps cut)". It is quite different
from the rest of the video. This is a traditional video-clip with lots of
special effects, fairly professionally done. This seems to be one of the best
videos I have ever seen to such kind of music: the picture and the sound
"One day in wasteland" is a limited released in two formats: 21 VHS's and 90
CD-r copies in a DVD box.
