Laz Rojas is a master of transformation! He makes work in film, photography, and art that consistently tread a tenuous line between complex and simple. His work is sharp, witty, multi-layered all in all thorough. One could say there is an idiosyncratic variety of different meanings to his work. In his mélange of imagery he is responsible for every little detail we see, for every role, for every costume! He shot, directed, edited, wrote and styled a four-hour, 52-scene audition tape, now known as One-Man Showcase, where he kisses himself, shoots himself and he has a dialogue with himself…. Rojas, with his One-Man Showcase, assuringly produced one of the most legendary ‘audition’ tapes in the history of cinema. The still aspiring actor-writer-director, at the very beginning didn’t get the response he wanted, the response he deserved, but all these years later he is finally on the right track. With today’s audience and appreciation for indie and art production, Laz could now finally get his big break.
Katja Horvat sat down with the master himself and talked about movies, life and what is there to follow: http://tissuemagazine.com/?p=6719

Cleveland born electronic musician and cofounder of the famous “first true post-tourism publication“ The Travel Almanac John Roberts just released his third studio album Plum on his label Brunette Editions. But instead of presenting Plum with a traditional live performance Roberts has made a series of short movies called Odeon. Plum and Odeon as a whole world-premiered in Berlin’s old beautiful Passage Kino in Neukölln, as a part of the Pop-Kultur festival in the beginning of September, for once Roberts could be seen relaxed among the audience at his own show.
Emilie Engbirk met John to a talk about body parts, chance and ambiguity. Read the full interview here: http://tissuemagazine.com/?p=6620
