Bornn's latest release, Ocean's Edge – Spirit's Journey,
sets dramatic coastal images, evocative abstracts, and natural ocean sounds
to original, improvisational duets with Laura
Worth. Their observation of gratuitous violence in typical "savage
documentaries has led them to develop the alternative, nonviolent, nature
film series, Ebb and Flow. First in
that series, Ocean's Edge – Spirit's Journey features
seabirds as a metaphor for the persistence and poignancy of life.
In it Robert weaves their six instrumental ballads with his natural visuals
to create an exciting journey through the eyes of a seabird. Filmed
on digital videotape at sunset, nature provided all the vibrant colors
and visual "special effects."
For more than four decades Robert
Bornn has created a wide variety of films and images. In 1968 his
first lyrical film, Mandarin Orange Matrix, was screened at the historic
Filmmakers Cinematheque in New York City.
Robert and Laura (pictures
and bios) have also each been making music for more than four decades.
Prior to developing their duo style, they built a musical ensemble, DIAJ
(Drummers in a Jam), creating a new African-Inspired, California-Grown
music. Robert produced their abum, Pangaea:
Old World, New Visions on which their melodic and rhythmic improvisations
are featured with lead vocalist, Ma Boukaka,
the Congolese-American entertainer and teacher.
