Watershed by Tania Haberland

Watershed is a fusion of abstract music video and poetic text. Its maker, Carine Iriarte, calls this electropoetry. As with ambient electronic music, the piece is minimal, with mantric repetition of a fragment of a poem by Tania Haberland, whose spoken voice within the music is lush and lulling to the ear. The images meet the sound in fluid digital layers. The hypnotic experience of the video is like a trance meditation.

The Torrid Zone is another video from these artists featured before at Moving Poems, in that instance from a complete poem by Haberland.

Music and film are credited to Poetics of Reverie, a collaborative project of Iriarte.
