The majority of video created during my active period as a performance artist (1998-2005) consisted of a live, improvised mix from multiple prepared sources subjected to real time effects manipulation. Venues ranged from trance parties to club shows to festival and gallery installations. Very few attempts were made by me or anyone else to capture samples of the stream. Part of the utter freedom of performance was lack of trace. Every installation was a gift to the sands of time.
In years since, I have made—and continue to make—occasional video shorts. The best place to see these is on the Stikmanz YouTube channel.
