TRACK NINE: song for the untitled from Tommy Becker on Vimeo.

“All things come out of the One and the One out of all things.” – Heraclitus, 500BC

Track Number Nine: song for the untitled | 3min 40sec | DV | 2004
Track Number Nine is a celebration of the unknown. It’s an embrace of the often obscured unity presented to us by the twisting opposites continually untangling in our fragile lives.

TRACK SEVEN: song for disobedient youth from Tommy Becker on Vimeo.

“Youth cannot know how age thinks and feels. But old men are guilty if they forget what it was to be young.” – J.K. Rowlings

Track Number Seven: song for disobedient youth | 2min 35sec | DV | 2008
It’s a natural response for teenagers to question and react against their cultural conditioning. Song for Disobedient Youth is an exhortation to embrace unfettered joy and chaos before the agonies of adulthood set in. It invites the viewer to momentarily indulge in the fantasy of youthful rebellion, self-discovery, recklessness, love, disregard, dream and contempt that continues to escape us as we are pulled further into the constructs of age and culture.

TRACK THREE: song for hellos and good-byes from Tommy Becker on Vimeo.

“We die to each other daily. What we know of other people is only our memory of the moments during which we knew them.”
― T.S. Eliot

Track Number Three: song for hellos and goodbyes | 2min 35sec | DV | 2010
This short video poem is dedicated to the fleeting relationships which so often percolate through contemporary life. Song for Hellos and Goodbyes leads viewers through the birth and death of a romantic relationship using the cliché lines of purchased gift cards. Within the script, a second voice emerges to reveal a more authentic picture as the relationship blossoms, sours and disappears.

video & music: written, recorded, performed and edited by TBecker | 2010 | text compiled from a variety of gift cards at the local grocery

TRACK TWO: song for the fate of animals from Tommy Becker on Vimeo.

“What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, man would die from a great loneliness of the spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts, soon happens to man. All things are connected.” ~ Chief Seattle

Track Number Two: song for the fate of animals | 2min 10sec | DV | 2003
Track Number Two is a celebration of the wild. It’s a war chant heard bellowing from the mouths of animals as they march, fly and slither down the streets in protest. Images of the untamable flash across the screen as a stream of consciousness unfolds. A recited mantra drives the pack to the beating of tribal drums. Titled after one of his paintings, “song for the fate of animals” is dedicated to Franz Marc, an artist who expressed so much beauty before witnessing so much death.

TRACK ONE: song for a significant other from Tommy Becker on Vimeo.

“pulling down the sky to give you the sun”

Track Number One: song for a significant other | 1min 50sec | DV | 2005
After piecing together a yellow outfit from second hand stores, the simple act of jumping is turned into a performed act of giving as a figure struggles to transform himself into the sun. Track Number One was a belated birthday present and is a gift to be shared with others, especially the artists who continue to exercise their light and amuse their imaginations.
