Jud Yalkut

Videotape Study No. 3 (1969) 16mm, black and white, 4 min

Genre: Experimental

Co-made with Nam June Paik. Sound by David Behrman. Sound Editing by Ken Werner. "With David Behrman's music, VIDEOTAPE STUDY NO. 3 has found its perfect media mate." -- Carman Moore, The Village Voice. "VIDEOTAPE STUDY NO. 3 was shot completely off the monitor of the videotape recorder, from previously collected material. There are two sections: the first shows an LBJ press conference in which the tape was halted in various positions to freeze the frame in devastating grimaces; the second section shows Mayor John Lindsay of New York during a press conference, asking someone 'to please sit down,' altered electronically and manually by stopping the tape and moving in slow motion, and by repeating actions. The soundtrack is a political speech composition by David Behrman. In the editing of these films, Yalkut has managed to create an enduring image of the metaphysical nature of video and its process of perception." -- Gene Youngblood, Expanded Cinema, Dutton, NY. Presented at David Behrman's "Electric Ear" concert at the Electric Circus in New York., and in its final version at the "Vision and Television" exhibition at the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts in 1970.
