Pillow Girl Lives Again
'A disorienting kaleidoscope around the sultry female form' - Columbus Ledger-Examiner 'A jaw-dropping exercise in formal beauty and digital virtuosity' - Coney Island Film Festival (Named Best Experimental Film) Named Best Experimental Film at the Miami Short Film Festival Pillow Girl was originally a sound-art work created for the February 2004 Risque Invitational at the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver. Musician/Artist Ronnie Cramer scanned the covers and inside pages of a number of lurid, vintage paperbacks and magazines, then ran the collected image and text data through a variety of synthesizers. The resulting sound files were then processed and remixed into a collection of electronic soundscapes called Pillow Girl and Other Songs of Romance. This 'music' was used for the soundtrack for the Pillow Girl film. The recently completed visual portion of the film makes use of the covers themselves, with one illustrated figure morphing into the next every two seconds (each cover is visible in it's original state for only 1/30th of a second). During the course of the film, over 200 covers are presented in this fashion.
