tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE 's Neoist Movies

(from early 1981e.v. to december, 2018e.v.)

(in order of most recent to oldest - with the exception of the Philosopher's Union Members Mouthpieces & the HiTEC documents - which are organized together regardless of how they fit the overall chronology)

Neoism is a patanational subversive movement founded by Istvan Kantor in Montréal in 1979 in his incarnation as one of the participants in the Collective Identity Monty Cantsin. Kantor coined the word "Neoism" on May 1, 1979 & performed the 1st Neoist action on May 22, 1979. Neoism has always been an open context resistant to oversimplification (including this one) & deliberately defiant of definition. Anyone who can feel comfortable w/ such an undefined thing is likely to be a Neoist. Neoism came to be somewhat centered around Apartment Festivals. The 1st of these was in Montréal in September, 1980 & involved mostly Montréal-based people w/ one person from France & one from Denmark. By December, 1980, there was an uneasy merger between the Krononauts in BalTimOre (wch I was a member of) & the Montréal Neoists. Some of the Krononauts went to Montréal in February, 1981 to participate in the 2nd Apt Fest. I organized the 3rd Apt Fest in BalTimOre in May-June, 1981 - thusly making the 1st Neoist Fest outside of Montréal. After this festival, I was the only Krononaut to remain connected to the Neoists. Strictly speaking, I, at least, don't think that there's anything intrinsically Neoist. However, when people define their work/activities as Neoist when there are pre-existing contexts for it that're more appropriate (such as Visual Poetry) then I become particularly disgusted. The movies of mine that I list below as Neoist are so-listed b/c they're quasi-documentaries of Neoist events & actions &/or b/c they explore Neoist approachs to the world. Imitating them wd NOT be Neoist. There're 65 Neoist movies listed below out of the 562 I've made to date.

The 3 websites I most recommend for Neoism are:

130. a. "VAUDIO"

- a compilation of video work with a strong audio component from 1980 to 1989; some of the parts of it are online in the same formk but most of the parts are different versions than are otherwise available

- 1:56:18

- possibly as early as the beginning of 1990

b. "VAUDIO"

- This is the version I made to put on my onesownthoughts YouTube channel here: https://youtu.be/yamGE-mVW8A . It's different from what's on the original VHS tape because I wanted to make some improvements:

- the components are:

"Crab Feast No.2 & 1 Halfish" (1980) - a film by John Ellsberry. That's not John's title, it's mine. I added the soundtrack too - it's by Crab Feast, a band of mine that John was in. We're shown rehearsing at the end. I had the transfer done & added the titles, John may not approve. - https://youtu.be/yamGE-mVW8A?t=20s

"booed usic at t he telectropheremoanin'quinquennial" (January 24, 1984) - a longer version of this without these titles is on the Internet Archive. - https://youtu.be/yamGE-mVW8A?t=2m58s

"Chinese for Celli" (1985) - already separately on YouTube. - https://youtu.be/yamGE-mVW8A?t=8m2s

"Transparent Smile (Monty Cantsin performing with White Colours)" (1984-1985) - the original VAUDIO version of this was of an early print of the film before I'd added scratching to the internegative. This is the same version that's on YouTube already except that the earlier upload is in 2 parts. - https://youtu.be/yamGE-mVW8A?t=15m1s

"Easter Island Bunny Booed Usic (excerpt)" (1987) - I didn't try to salvage this, what's presented here is the glitchy version direct from the VAUDIO 'master'. - https://youtu.be/yamGE-mVW8A?t=31m55s

"Generic As-Beenism - Part II: Bird-Brain-Ism" (1987) - In Montréal at Ultimatum II. Not previously on YouTube. - https://youtu.be/yamGE-mVW8A?t=40m16s

"Brain Waves Goodbye - Part VIII" (1987) - This is a complete section excerpt rather than the edit presented elsewhere on YouTube. - https://youtu.be/yamGE-mVW8A?t=49m40s

"Sound Along w/ t he Bounding Ball(s)" (1983-1986) - The silent negative version owned by the Enoch Pratt Library with a soundtrack added from various performances of the film as a score. The other version on YouTube is edited. - https://youtu.be/yamGE-mVW8A?t=54m46s

"Tents Muir" (1988) - The same version that's elsewhere on YouTube. - https://youtu.be/yamGE-mVW8A?t=1h4m16s

"Murraygate Busking" (1988.08.13) - The original version on VAUDIO is the same version that's on YouTube separately. This version is a straight shot without the PXL-2000 intercutting. - https://youtu.be/yamGE-mVW8A?t=1h14m50s

"Something That Dissolves The Shadow of Something That Was Next to Something That Combusted Twice. Once." (1989.11.04) - This is a version that's almost twice as long as what's already on YouTube (which is also broken into 2 parts). - https://youtu.be/yamGE-mVW8A?t=1h26m51s

"Transparent Smile (Monty Cantsin performing with White Colours)" (1984-1985) - the original VAUDIO version of this was of an early print of the film before I'd added scratching to the internegative. This is the same version that's on YouTube already except that the earlier upload is in 2 parts. - https://youtu.be/yamGE-mVW8A?t=15m1s

 

044. a. "The 8th International Neoist Apartment Festival" {version 1}

034. a. "Apt 7" {version 1}

- shot by Lizard Media Systems &/or Craig Considine (color) & Laure Drogoul (B&W) w/ additional footage (super 8) from Laure Drogoul & Boris Wanowitch

- organized & edited by tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE

- 1/2" VHS cassette

- 2:00:00

- '83 (etc..)

b. "Apt 7" {version 2}

- 1:00:00

c. "Apt 7" {version 3}

- 31:20

d. "APT 7" {version 4}

- This is version 2 with scans, titles, & credits added. There were problems with digitizing the parts that were originally reel-to-reel so the last section with Monty is particularly funky. Note also that Monty's flier for the festival has the last day as the 28th instead of the 25th. I tried digitixing version 1 1st but there were too many technical problems so I settled for reworking version 2 instead. This means that footage from Laure Drogoul's "Drilling Nails" is missing but she complained about my using it so much in the 1st place that that's probably why it's not in version 2. Obviously, other things are missing too. Still, it's the best version yet (& likely to be the last one because I had so many technical problems with making it that I don't think I want to spend anymore time on it.
