Title: Motion Paintings
Format: DVD/Book
Label: Uberkatze Studio
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Awesome video and sound work by two of my heroes. There are 15 different motion paintings, each accompanied by loop based music. The motion paintings are abstract videos of colourful and impossible organic processes. Beautiful to look at and superbly complimented by the soundtrack. All camera shot. No annoying digital effects. I cant say I have ever seen anything quite like Motion Paintings rare beauty. Outstanding work." - Swill Radio. Graham Lambkin = 1/3 of The Shadow RIng.

Artist: SHORTELL, TIMOTHY
Title: Windows
Format: Book + CDR
Label: Uberkatze Studio
Country: USA
Price: $48.00
40 page full-color photo book (perfect bound) with accompanying music. Shortell is AKA Brrr, and a founding member of the Anti-Naturals with Scott Foust, Karla Borecky, Graham Lambkin, and Tim Goss. "The music uses synthetic elements, industrial sounds and instruments alongside field recordings. The latter are never gratuitous, nor are they merely a window-dressing (if one will pardon the pun), but function as structural elements to the music. "Tropical Storm Irene" is a good example of this, whereby the sounds of rain are manipulated to take on the same glissando as the synthesized elements, lending the whole affair a rather maudlin tone. Shortell himself writes in the (brief) liner notes that windows serve “as a boundary and a portal between public and private in social life”. While he quickly goes on to state that this project addresses the aesthetic potential of windows, rather than the sociological functions (latent or otherwise), the last track,  "Parque Hotel", sounds rather analagous to just that boundary. Murky and incomprehensible vocals are augmented by washing synth lines, as though reflecting the listeners moments of eye contact with diners while peering into a busy restaurant. Surely the albums flagship, and somewhat reminiscent of Idea Fire Companys work (it is released on the Anti-Naturals imprint Überkatze Studio, and mixed by Graham Lambkin after all)." - Cut and Run blog.

Title: Uberkatze Studio Volume One
Format: Book/DVDR
Label: Uberkatze Studio
Country: USA
Price: $30.00
"Six of the most popular films from Uberkatze studio circa 1997-2004. The early days of Anti-Naturals cinema presented in a beautiful soft cover book which includes stills from each of the films. The films: The Problem Of Anxiety (Timothy Shortell, Music: BRRR) - An excellent static short. Based on a text by Sigmund Freud. The Terrible Comet Salt (Timothy Shortell, Music: Idea Fire Company and BRRR, Narration: Darren Harris) - I love all of these films, but I think this is my favourite. Comet Salt consists entirely of still photographs combined with an expressionist story by Paul Scheerbart read by Darren Harris and a pulsing hypnotic score by IFCO and BRRR. Word, image, and sound flow together perfectly, although the photographs are more of an atmospheric illustration of the story, than a dramatic representation. Perfect throughout. Right Now! (Scott Foust, Music: Tart) - Right Now! was my first film, a ten minute epic.Although it isnt really, in my mind it is the same film as my full length epic, Heres To Love!. This one holds up on its own, though. Ulrich (Timothy Shortell, Music: Graham Lambkin) - One of the Doctors war trilogy. Toy soldiers and cleverly camera manipulated still photos. Disturbing soundtrack. Soon (Timothy Shortell, Music: BRRR) - A short, short film depicting the Anti-Naturals constant power struggle. Tim is the figure in black. I am in orange. Rouffley (Timothy Shortell and Graham Lambkin, Music: Graham Lambkin) -Lambkin and Shortells short morality tale that has to be seen to be even imagined. All Anti-Naturals films deny many elements of modern conventional cinema in order to create new, fresh atmospheres. I expect that when Heres To Love! is finally released in 2007, interest will grow in the whole of Anti-Naturals cinema and this will become a sought after item. Uniqueness is so rare these days. Outstanding object." - Swill Radio. Contributions from members of Shadow Ring, Idea Fire Company, Tart, etc..
