detritus II (2009) was realized in collaboration with New York-based filmmaker/video artist Colin Elliott. The audio ingests instrumental samples from existing instrumental pieces, as well as fragments of French proto-surrealist writer Lautréamont's Les Chants de Maldoror. By the same token, segments of the violent and sensual Lautréamont text are manipulated in the visuals, whose raw, grainy, and distorted qualities reflect the anti-digital nature of the electronics. The materials employed in both the visual and auditory domains range from the highly abstract (color fields in the video, noise-bands in the audio) to the highly iconic (landscapes and machine images in the video, urban/industrial environmental sources in the audio).
