IN SPACE SIGN ADDICTIVE TV
Bringing a new flavour to the mix, leading creative studio Lost In
Space have signed pioneering audio/video artists Addictive TV to their
roster of cutting-edge graphic artists, CGI animators and film-makers.
Addictive TV, who've just directed the Rapture Riders video mash-up
of Blondie vs. The Doors for EMI, are one of the World's top artists/producers
in the area of audiovisual mixing, remixing and live visuals. They've
produced commercial work for clients including Channel 4, BT, Agnes
B and Wella Shockwaves.
Addictive TV have had their work screened at festivals worldwide from
Resfest to Sonar and last year were voted #1 VJs in the world by DJ
Magazine. As performers, this year Addictive TV have been touring
their live cinema project "The Eye of the Pilot" which they've
performed at venues including the Pompidou Centre in Paris, the National
Theatre in London and The Cologne Museum of Applied Arts. The
EMI Rapture Riders project remixes Blondie's Rapture with The Doors'
Riders on the Storm and Addictive TV got the gig to make the video
after creating a series of bootleg movie remixes, including 60's Classic
The Italian Job, which created a real buzz after doing the rounds to
much acclaim on the internet.
"What happened in music sampling is clearly happening now audiovisually" says
Graham Daniels from Addictive TV, "companies have all kinds of interesting
archive material that can be creatively reused, all it takes is a bit
of a new mind-set; but in reality we're as much at home creating new
material as remixing existing".
In December Addictive TV fly east to play an audiovisual club set
in Bangkok, where Lost in Space maintains a studio, before flying onto
other dates in the Far East.
