Speed Tribe

"Speedtribe is an audio-visual album created by digital filmmakers Sharon Matarazzo and Rod Chong in collaboration with legendary electronica producers of Front 242 Daniel Bressanuti and Patric Codenys. Put simply it is a record of last years Lemans race set to music.First impressions- very slick and professional looking, great colours with spectacular audio. Then, when you watch for a second and third time with a critical eye as I did before writing this, you realize just how much thought and sheer artistic talent has gone into each and every frame. I can honestly say that you could freeze the thing at any point and have yourself a superb image to grace any gallery wall. Plenty of clever special effects, and Rod has woven some footage from the PC game Sports Car GT into his film, chasing down the straight through the spray at night. This would look great on a cinema screen.The rain last year was a nightmare for the teams but a filmmaker's gift. Great shots of high-speed clouds rolling in behind the Dunlop Bridge and sheets of rain sweeping the track. I began to wonder how Rod got some of those angles without being run over!
If Britney and S Club are your musical bag you might not like the soundtrack. I love it but then I have twiddled a synth knob or two myself in the past. The music really compliments the visuals in a big way and of course there is another tune I guarantee you will enjoy, Lemans cars howling down the Mulsanne. The sound sweeps across the speakers in a great surround-sound way so turn it up and to hell with the neighbours!All in all, this is a brilliant piece of work. Not sure if the makers will like me saying this but it has a definite feel of the Steve McQueen movie brought bang up to date. Good stuff!"
Total visual and audio onslaught l!!!!!

"OMG! In three words: WHAT A TRIP! Some of the most dazzling visuals yet to be seen on a DVD of this kind. I'm in complete awe as to the overall soundtrack, mixing and editing of this awesome blend of Super-cool, Ultra-fast cars, with a timeless soundtrack provided by the Legends themselves: Front 242. I grew up listening to them and there sound still pushes the sonic envelope, I'm just too happy with this buy!!! If there ever was a "gimic" or "visual toy" you just HAD to have....THIS IS THE ONE!."
When your at speed there is no fear.

"this simply is an amazing piece of art! front 242 fans should not even think twice about buying this. perfectly captured video from the le mans 24 hour race, accompanied by the magic of patrick codenys and daniel b. from the packaging to the overall presentation, speed tribe is perfect. this should be shown to students of music, photography, production, and computer generated imagery as an example of excellence."

"Like a sonic boom that races across your mind's uncharted territory, delivering dose after dose of pleasure stimuli and pushing your neurons to capacity. This mind boggling work takes you to the extremes of tonal ecstasy.This work is so far beyond the electronic frontier, I shudder. It seems to activate previously unexplored senses, expanding your nervous system into multiple directions...what a ride!Dare I say it - it somewhat requires a refined pallet. It's delightfully less accessible than anything I've listened to in at least 1000 years. The rewards are just as endless. Synaesthetic connoisseurs welcome here. Others need not apply or at least be willing to enter at your own risk.More like CNS architects than traditional musicians, the artists are shamans from the future, always heralding the next wave of music and delivering on contact with precision and great vision.It's almost spooky that so many moods can be felt. Outstanding work...and that just describes the music!"
