May 19, 1943

Hey, here's a new short film from New College student Scott Ross and alum Ricky Robertson. The pair were responsible for that mini INC documentary on Current.

This new one was filmed on location at the Funny Farm aka the Cooler Ranch aka Skeleton Warrior's estate in the boonies of Myakka. The music is from E.N.'s "You Will Be Outdated Soon."

Here's Tyger Beat's set from Cinema Sounds (04/26/08). Everyone (Skeleton Warrior, Pharaoh Faucett, Math Cats, Stead and His Larson and La Fours) provided live scores to films playing on the big screen at Burns Court Cinema in Downtown Sarasota.

And here's a video of a collaboration between New College student Dorothy Dubrule and Jimmy Schaus from Skeleton Warrior. The piece is called "Flesh and Blood" and was choreographed/scored through an extended process of improvisational give and take: sounds were written in response to movements and vice versa. The clip is from New College's Spring Dance Tutorial performance.
