ISLAND SONG by Charlemagne Palestine
Umatic tranfered to dvd, 00:16:02, 1976

Charlemagne Palestine is a composer and performer, one of the last eccentric American shamans. In his hands the instruments of video and sound become animistic performers.
In Island Song Charlemagne drives a motorcycle around Saint Pierre island with a portapack video system strapped to himself. Singing and shouting, the artits harmonizes with the engine, while desperately trying to find a way out.

"The ultimate escape video."
Alexandre Estrela
