Sketches of Pain
2008, Uncompressed (PAL Quicktime 720×576), 16:9, 24:01 min, Stereo. Music performed by Pink Twins & Zugeer L, live at Chameleon Disco Club, Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, 24 August 2006

In August 2006 Pink Twins played in Mongolia’s oldest disco (Chameleon Disco Club in Ulaanbaatar) together with a local metal band Zugeer L. Sketches of Pain is based on the footage of the concert. Rather than a direct documentary, the video is a psychedelic treatment, a re-interpretation of a meeting of people and artists with little in common other than music. What happens when artists of different cultural background, different language and different musical conventions take the stage together? Achieving a meeting point unavoidably involves great pain.
