Straying from a conventional dance video, Syncretic Noise, created it’s own genre of dance videos through it’s usage of a man dancing secluded from a city at battle with itself. While utilizing background noises from the dancer’s feet hitting the dusty pavement, to the outside world’s chaos, a hyper society is portrayed in time-lapses as the dancer’s natural motion continues across cuts over discontinuities of space from forest landscapes to gritty urban life. Syncretic Noise will engage you from the start as the fluidity of editing places you inside of the screen, with the isolated dancer.
