● Test Pattern [4:45]

Instead of God’s supreme love a test pattern for reference is sufficient for me. My track ‘Test Pattern’ is combined with a stop motion film I made during a two and a half hour walk in 1992. The trip from the middle of Central Park to Battery Park in the south is equivalent to 12.000 steps but armed with a Bolex film camera this resulted in 3.000 single exposures and an aching finger on the release button. The duration is here stretched by doubling every frame of the film. There is also the original version called ‘Diving’ with music by Fiskvildfjerkræ.
