What is this? Who are we?
Bleu Nuit Video is an experimental video distribution and production label. Founded by Montreal video artist Rob Feulner, the goal of Bleu Nuit Video is to give opportunity to experimental audio/visualists to showcase their work outside of the embedded streaming medium.
Feel free to contact Bleu Nuit Video at the following address:
An exploration of the VHS medium and the subterranean trash which thrived in it. Using source material from Emmanuelle 6,
this DVD-R/VHS further blurs the line between low and high art.
Beautiful cinematography coupled with smut. Strategic pauses and
tracking errors guides the viewer to discover the true depth and sadness
of the seemingly one-dimensional Emmanuelle. Soaring arpeggio synths
and pulsating rhythms by Rob Feulner.
The utter destruction of arguably the most beautiful film never seen,
lost and forgotten on the shelf of your local video store, behind the
cowboy doors or dangling beads. Written off as pornography by most,
written off as too soft by creeps. This is the plight of Emmanuelle.
The DVD is duplicated on glossy DVD-5 discs, using the highest quality 6-colour inkjet printing possible. Keeping true to its title, there are three different disc “faces.” The DVD is packaged in a professional quality DVD-sized jewel case named the Super Jewel Box King, a case like no other, and is unfortunately no longer being manufactured. Full colour double-sided printing for both the cover and trapsheet.
The VHS is hand duplicated straight from the master source to a premium-grade T-40 VHS tape. In true VHS fashion, the tape is subject to flickers, tracking errors, and off-sync audio. Limited to 25 copies.
Montreal artist Guillaume Vallée's blendings of visual mediums open worlds not meant to be travelled. Film scratches and cigarette burns appear, and then further distorted by VHS tracking errors. His unique approach to analog manipulation is accompanied by the new school of Montreal experimental musicians, including Charles Barabé, Ritual Inc., and A Sacred Cloud.
"b0dyg0d" (Dir. b0dyg0d")
In the same tradition as James Benning's One Way Boogie Woogie,
New York artist b0dygod places 30 second pop snippets out of context,
redefining them through slowed down radio loop. By second 25, the viewer
is anxious as to how this video will end and what the next one will
bring. Layers of the human soul and the future of humanity are unveiled
through mere repetition.
