Created in 2005, Palladio is a VJ movie by Ben Neill and Bill Jones based on the novel of the same name by Jonathan Dee. Palladio asks the question, “In a world where the line between culture and commerce is increasingly blurred, can you really sell out anymore?” Neill and Jones’ new media work tells the story of an unlikely romantic triangle set against the backdrop of the often conflicting worlds of music, art and advertising. Palladio fluidly mixes sampled commercials, live action cinematic drama and music.

Ben Neill and Bill Jones will present a set of future dub jazz and interactive video for Neill’s newly created mutantrumpet. Dark, dubstep beats and basslines meet the trippy sonic explorations of Neill’s recently redesigned electro/acoustic instrument. Jones provides the video imagery, a black and white urban dreamscape inspired by sci-fi noir films such as Godard’s Alphaville. The video and music are seamlessly integrated in real time.
