mordant music - MisinforMation

'MisinforMation' is one of the most surreal, evocative and compelling DVDs you'll ever have the pleasure of watching. It's a collaboration between the enigmatic Mordant Music and the esteemed BFI, who commissioned MM to spend eight months researching and re-scoring an array of 70s and 80s public information films and documentary shorts produced by the Central Office of Information (COI). For a generation of UK citizens over the age of 25 these films were an inextricable part of life's curriculum, instilling a government-sponsored sense of fear, wonder and boggle-eyed delight straight to a captive demographic primed for collective socialisation. Baron Mordant has re-spored the footage to fit his own peculiar agenda, enhancing pieces such as 'Illusions', a film on solvent abuse, the well known 'AIDS: Iceberg' short, or Peter Greenaway's nascent 'Inkjet Printer (Living Tomorrow 245)' and the stunning 'Sea In Their Blood' with the kind of intensely trippy flavours that will just completely re-program your memory banks. And even if you don't recollect the original films, the marriage of grainy, grey and archaic footage together with MM's style of psilocybic drones and tones is vividly redolent of some shared past experience buried in the most remote corners of the mind - in conditions favorable for the germination of fearful ideas. The film has aesthetic shades of Mark Leckey's Turner prize-winning 'Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore' or the black sense of humour in the classic 1st series of the Chris Morris-produced 'Look Around You', but 'MisinforMation' is more subtly febrile, lucidly reflecting the effective slow infection of a nation's psyche present in the original films. The scope of the project is pretty much unprecedented and the effect is deadly potent, making this not only a prized Hauntological document (Simon Reynolds, in fact, recently asked if it was the ultimate hauntologicall artefact), but also a strangely alluring and oddly beautiful document of a bygone era we just cant seem to let go of. Essential viewing.
