NOT ALL THOSE WHO WANDER ARE LOST is an audio-visual journey through the invisible movement of urban landscapes and their sounds. Created from found footage of urban environments, the running magnetic tape will be analogue manipulated with a modified video mixer. The visual motifs sway into the music of The Kanadagans and vice versa. Based on guitars, FX-pedals and synthesizers, they create humming-buzzing drone music.
Dealing with the aspects of intuition, distortion, minimalism and monotony the audio-visual cooperation leaves the established paths of perception, finding the hypnotic pulse of urban landscapes channeling its vibration through the malfunction of the machine. Exploring the medium through malfunction as a homage to the poetry of failure. A cathartic wander through humanity in the machine, and a tribute to the emotive – often flawed – feedback of the human mindscape. Gleaning and wafting within an intuitive communication that rises from the mutual submersion and a subliminal sense for the playing and phrasings of each other‘s musical and visual counterpart. Not all those who wander are lost.
