Bataille Film Maker Request's Animal-Man/Animal Woman Images: Deadline 25th of June, 2012

Open Call: a short but fierce call to image makers!

Image makers, we are seeking images of man-animal (man is any gender, any sexuality, perhaps not even man anymore, metal-based machines-and-the-animal-body-parts...

We are working on a film for Bataillle, that is due to play in Portugal, early July 2012.


We are seeking those who would work for credit! You will be credited for your images in some matter that has yet to be decided. We are thinking but are not settled on either using something we call a Balance Sheet (as if credits were like debts to be paid) or in Traditional type Credits (beginning or/and end of the film).

The issue of Credits is a problem that is being address at this very moment discussions are underway as to what this means, what it would means to use other methods of crediting creators and contributors, as well as supporters and dedications... if this is of concern, please email us before submitting work, by submitting work you agree to allow us the use of your work in this Bataille celebration film, and only this film and its related promotional material, without any strings, any monetary compensation, or any compensation beyond some acknowledgement for their work.

for example: this animal headed woman from Proda

IF it makes you feel better, we aren't either being paid for our work. It is a work of a strange love, an odd devotion, a societal sickness that has given greater health, burning in little deaths, in the flames and out-worlds arrowed into the pregnant abyss beyond my words construction, sorcerers of death injunction; final push in and out, north and south, until this means nothing.

So, are you in?! If so, please, send your image and all the pertinent detail of your artistic project, such as artist-name (if different from your 'flat' name), website info, etc... and do this, please and thank thee, ASAP! As the great sage once relayed to us as we dangled over a cliff called delirium, "DON'T PANIC!" The deadline for receiving images is short, only a little bit more than over the weekend. Again, Deadline is 5pm 25th of June 2012

If we are going to use your work, you will know by July 1st 2012 at the very latest. Often you will find out immidately of our intention to use your peice, regardless of whether it makes it to the final cut, you will have acted as an inspiration and for that will be acknolodge at min, in our textual material put out with the project (the back-store, the names of all involved, those that inspired, contributed, etc).

Okay... lets see these Polymorphic Creature Photos, also accepted Polymorphic Creature-Borg/AlienNonCarbonBasedLIFE

SEND ALL WORK to Thee Uncondemning Monk's Facebook (Uncondemning Monk) OR send an email to them at: nonphilosopher (AT), with a subject Bataille ART!

Thee Uncondemning Monk (St. Stephen Agleaca), Coyote Satan High Priest, Freemason,  & Academic Scholar

The film is dedicated to the enduring memory and name that is Bataille, so much to so many; with our work we salute thee!

Thee Purr Project (TPP)

Greetings to all,

We, of Thee Uncondemning Monk (aka, UM), are restarting a project that never took off. We are opening up Thee Purr Project or TPP. TPP works thus:

after receiving 10 recordings of your (or your friends, etc) felines purring, that is after receiving 10 tracks of different purrs, we will then post these track to SoundCloud. After they are posted to SoundCloud they will be open for peoples to create music utilizing them. How you use them is up to you. Here are the rules

Please send a link to your .wav or .flac file if possible, but we can handle most any music file type (we will let you know if we have a problem)

Tracks must be uploaded to the internet, preferably to soundcloud, once we have downloaded your track, we will notify you so you can take it down if you so choose, as we will be reposting them in the soundcloud purr project... 

you can submit purrs as often as you like as long as they are not the same purs from the same cat, if "your" feline has different purrs, then we will except each track as a new and individual track...
the purr project will have a creative commons licensing with the restrictions that none of it is to be sold, that derivatives are allowed only if they credit the creators of the work... this will hold true for all work create in the project, BUT if you create a unique song from the purr, you have all rights beyond our use, we will only be compiling the work into a bandcamp album (with min. mastering, mostly normalization of volume), and it will be free to download w/ no email address required (at the very end of each session). A Session will be marked by whatever the time limit is on band camp for a single album, then we will more on to the next, all done in the order they are received/submitted...

the min for a purr track is 30 sec, the max 3 min.
the min for a sound werk/song created from one or more purr tracks is 1 min, with a max of 15 min.

What else? Please, be sure to include all relevant band information, email information, etc, with the song (in the file name if need be), so we can contact you if needed, at least to let you know about project update (only when there is something to report, such as the release of the purr project, or that the purrs are up on soundcloud for work)... if you need to email information to us (NO ATTACHMENTS!, links only please!) then...

email thee UM this way, subject line: Thee PURR Project TPP: (and then put here your band/artist name)

send your  email to: nonphilosopher (AT) Gmail (dot) com OR 

Personal Message us on Facebook: Uncondemning Monk, not our band page which is Thee Uncondemning Monk...

So, what do you think? Making music from the music maker themselves, those loving little purr machines... Good time ahead, that is what we think!

The Purr Project is currently open and will remain open for the year... if we decide to close the project we will let you know, but as of now we are accepting links to purr immediately!

Approved by the Jack Frost Committee, 5 June, 2012
