The film Forsvinningens Gang by Iselin Lønn, with the track Forvarsel by Juv. The film is slightly edited to fit the length of the track. The original film can be seen at iselinlonn.no
Forsvinningens Gang was made by Iselin Lønn in 1997-1998, using 8mm film and analogue editing. Originally a silent film, the combination with the Juv track was done in 2011.
Iselin was a fellow student and friend of ours when we were at the Royal Art Academy in Oslo in the late 90s, when a lot of the Juv music was recorded. She was making her film at precisely the same time as we were making our music. Iselin was one of the few people who heard and encouraged our music and at her request we made her a tape.
I remember being very affected by the film when I first saw it – after a lot of experimentation around school, in the summer she had left to stay at a cottage, and once there everything seemed to fall into place. It captures her trying to capture the movement of the wind via smoke, setting fire to water and moving the interior of the cottage into the woods. It was similar to our own summer night sessions on the porch of another cottage, directing the speakers to the fjord and woods, playing for the benefit of boats and animals.
Therefore it seemed only natural to commemorate the release of the album that almost never came to light by finally marrying the images and sound of that period of experimentation in the 90s.
