As fourth stage of 'AlmostREAL' art project / Commissioned by European Cultural Foundation / Amsterdam, NL
What happens if the sponsor and the sponsored swap positions? That was the fundamental question of the project AlmostYou.
This film analyses the relationship between ‘guest’ and
‘host’. How does the host present his
‘home’ to the guest?
Is it a transparent place – which just seems open – or is
there a sense of porosity; leaving real space for

‘TREE/study-II’ 2007 / 8.5 min
_______ _"Swinging"- video /
This audio-visual composition is a musical reflection of the actual movement of the tree
branches in space and time.
The “swinging” motion is depicted in the piano melodies and
motives, supported by the video, and complemented by
the spatial sound distribution of 6 channel speaker system. While observing a natural synchronisity between the
movement of the
and the “swinging” sounds of the piano, after some
time, the illusion arises that the
branches are actually producing or
triggering the sound.

'Broken projections' 2005 / 2.5min’ film
video by: Aliona yurtsevich
music by: Morton Feldman
projections” is a experimental visual expression for
electro-acoustic composition “Intersection” for magnetic
by Morton Feldman (1926-1987) - a composer for an original soundtrack for the Jackson Pollock
film, as a contribution to the
“Project for magnetic
tape”, initiated in 1952 by John Cage.
There no concrete pitches are composed, rather Feldman notates in a
system of little squares solely the number of tones, which are to
during a certain period of time on section of tape. In the same
illogical and disjointed manner, visual images appear and disappear,
creating an impression of a broken projector or a broken film. In
parallel, there is an impression of the nature of our random thought
processes and its incoherent behavior sometimes.
'STEPS' 2004 / 8 min’ film
directed and produced by: Aliona Yurtsevich
camera and sound field recording by: Aliona Yurtsevich
'STEPS' is a film made from the subconscious viewer – our
feet. Our life is a long journey that we have to walk
through step by step.
Our steps are the rhythm of our life. It is the
subconscious pulse switched on the day we are born. By
changing usual angle of our
perception of the world and daily
life, it anables us to, in this case, hear more sounds
surraounding us in our daily life, sounds that
we are not aware of
their presents. We walk in our daily life, not always noticing every detail around us,
under our feet, above us,
passing by small, but important things around
which proves that our world is in perfect harmony as it is. It has
a life of its own, conducted in One polyphonic orchestra, where we
all playing a solo part in some unknown composer’s piece.
'The story I read on the way back' 2004 / 10 min film
directed and produced by: Aliona Yurtsevich
camera by: Aliona Yurtsevich
music: selected works of early 20th century composers
A visual collage created by observing the nature and its objects on a bus journey from the country side to the city.
It is the flow of non-narrative imagery that uses site seeing as a
dramatic storytelling experience. The music becomes its inner voice,
just like a needle, sewing images together, inside-out and outside-in,
into seamless flow of raw emotions, making objects come alive.
“urban earth” 2003 / 5 min video
film by: Aliona Yurtsevich
music by: Michael Litvinenko
A stream of non-narrative imagery exploring themes of creation and
decay, the life force that permeates all objects,
man-made", and the inherent beauty of these processes.
“Urban Earth” is an out-of-body peregrination at an
abandoned building. There, among rusted girders, corroded aluminum
rotted wood, and rectangles of blue sky that once held window
panes, but now only shards of glass, a reminder that all can be
bent, torn and shredded into spider vein shapes.
