remf: umfeld

'Umfeld', a surround sound DVD project by techno producer Jochem Paap (Speedy J) and filmmaker Scott Pagano, premiered at V2 this weekend as part of the Rotterdam Electronic Music Festival.

Designed to explore the possibilities of the Dolby 5.1 system - said to be the next big leap in music after stereo - the hour-long abstract audiovisual piece had some interesting moments, especially in Pagano's weird mosaic-type montage of Rotterdam architecture.

But soundwise it suffered from, as Paap put it, his desire to "cram as much in there as possible." As a result, the project appeared to use the six speaker setup mainly to just create three times as much volume...

DVD to be released early next year. V2 will host a free downloadable version.
