TITLE: SCOT JENERIK - PYRO MANIACAL
Director: SCOTT ARFORD
FORMAT: VHS VIDEO
AVAILBLE FROM: 23Five Incorporated
Blurred pictures of flames resolve to show the burning thing (a construction of two-by-fours and some big industrial springs) on which Scot Jenerik, shirtless, bangs. It roars and clanks inhumanly with the noise of its own burning. The video comprises three segments of Jenerik torturing sound from his creations (one is like a lyre with a flamethrower in its head) at a performance at Burning Man 1996; one of the things I like about it is that both Jenerik and the videographer, the great Scott Arford, have made their work here, appropriately, about fire. PYRO MANIACAL burns pretty bright.
