Provisional Admitted / Provissional Admission
The Ambulence Ride
see also tape-024 (hospital)
...(hostpital - slow "walk in" along the coridoor)...
lighting here should be almost too bright
- ie, the exact opposite of death
something "dark" but clasical - adagio something..
the first 00:00 - of
the adagio for organ, violin and strings in g minor
but NOT into the first "violin" intrusion...
this should be looped continuously as with some
of Glass' or steve reich - possibly even
"toy soldiers" by Liz Story, mmmmm ????
BEGIN LARGE THING ............................................(
As the camera comes in, it slowly dodges back and forth
along the hospital hallway towards the room
finally it comes to rest on the figure - mimicking the
final hotel scene in 2001 a space odyssey.
the figure wakes slightly then reaches up feebly for
but then the monolith disolves slowly into an
array of rectangles
the B/G of the rectangles is at first only slightly
less black than the original. This then goes towards
a dark green - no white or even grey should be used
for the inter-sitial spaces. But, then the color
goes back towards pure black. And then back away
from black - but this time towards a dark blood-red
The following is the hand gestures that are to accompany
the sequence of the monolith:
SOLID, MASSIVE MONOLITH
the B/G of the mini-monoliths slowly fades
from totally black to a dark colour
then holds, gets slightly lighter - ie,
possibly even to a dimly lit hue of the colour
then fades back to black
holds this, then repeats this sequence
BEGN: HAND CYCLE -- SPIRITUALLY PLEADING FOR??? --
During all of this, the "patient" (Dave Bowman figure)
has his/her/neth's hands forward almost in suplication.
As the first dark green comes forward from the B/G of
the array of mini-monoliths, the hands slowly turn
from slightly akimgo (ie some-what upward but mostly
vertical) to more upward (as in not just suplication
but in yearning - almost a holy (religion/gesture to
VARY at the artist's discression) - until the are
almost flat (but still curved/cupped) flat pointing
upward. They begin to shake (each time this happens
they end up shaking more and more at the end - ie,
just before the fade of the tinted colour/hue back
END: HAND CYCLE -- SPIRITUALLY PLEADING FOR??? --
The color at this point starts going back to totally
As this happens
As the cycle ends we hear a sequence trying to
overcome the adagio
)................................................... END LARGE THING
The juxtaposition is that from
the adagio ...??? which ???
Happy 2B HardCore - "SunRize"
00:12 - 00:25
The first 12 seconds (almost certainly drawn out
longer) mimics the heart beat - poss with a
heart monitor "beeping" in the B/G - but this
would fade more and more.
The BEAT of the heart is based on the first
00:00 to 00:09
with the double beat at 00:05 - but in
each of the HAND CYCLE's this double beat
becomes more pronounced and then in the
fourth or fifth cycle it becomes much
more "ominious" and then
=============================================== but then.....
but then: ANYTHING TO BE PLACED HERE..
eg, the monolith turns completely yellow, and
then all of the mini-monoliths start flashing
(eg, similar to the opening film credits of
"Bannannas" by Woody Allen ---
flash / smash / splash
but NOT gnash NOR slash
.. or not (then that would lead to madness
Well, that's about it for now.
I'll try to make a film of this and
post it soonest on my youtube site...
