(2007, live cinema performance)
TIA MAK is a live VJ performance that remixes the classic documentary NANOOK OF THE NORTH into an avant-garde, pre-apocalyptic rock and roll show.
It’s different every time. Like a live music performance, there is a set list and a general blueprint for what will happen. But the specifics… shot choice, rhythm, and pacing change as the performer gets a feel for the venue and how the audience is feeling.
TIA MAK has been performed in many different kinds of settings; from film festivals where the audience sits and watches as if it were chamber music, to outdoor venues where beer flows freely.
While I am generally performing newer things, I'm always keen to dust this one of and play it again, updated for the times. Please feel free to contact me to arrange performances.
