A new Media Arts Video Co-production, MIASMA, Spectacles of Fantasy, Human Voice/Computer Vox. Directed by Allan Harding MacKay and Myra Davies, with soundtrack by Gudrun Gut, Good Studios, Berlin.
Dainty ballerina, bloody brides, valkyries and suicides; the push and pull of desire radiates from this poetic collage of women in masquerade. MIASMA, Spectacles of Fantasy (Length. 18:35) marks and documents ten years of performances by MIASMA, a theatre and digital media collaboration by Myra Davies (Canada) and Gudrun Gut (Germany).
Award winning Canadian videographer and visual artist Allan Harding MacKay is known for his evocative portraiture and sensual handling of the female image. Here he uses documentary Miasma footage to compose a lush dream stream of women engaged in exploration of feminine identities, archetypes, and desires ranging from self-sacrifice to murder.
The soundtrack by German Electronica artist Gudrun Gut features a strong beat and the satiric wit for which MIASMA is known.

Directed by Allan Harding MacKay and Myra Davies, with soundtrack by Gudrun Gut, Good Studios, Berlin, and produced at The Banff Centre in Canada, this video documents innovative live performance by this theatrical and digital media collaboration by Myra Davies (Canada) and Gudrun Gut (Germany).

Dainty ballerina, bloody brides, valkyries and suicides -- the push and pull of desire radiates from this poetic collage of women in masquerade. Award winning Canadian videographer, Allan Harding MacKay uses documentary MIASMA footage to compose a lush dream stream of women engaged in exploration of feminine identities, archetypes, and desires ranging from self-sacrifice to murder. The soundtrack by German Electronica artist Gudrun Gut features a strong beat and the satiric wit for which MIASMA is known. The four new audio works on this CD display MIASMA's current style of sophisticated satire. thought-provoking witty stories by Davies are embedded in Gut's Electronica. The track entitled 'tick' and 'Lilac' are obviously inspired by the Rocky Mountains where Davies lives, while the other two, 'Luft' and 'Beach' are stories from Berlin where MIASMA is based.
