Born in Beirut, Bruno Zalum is currently an MFA student at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. His short film, Orgie Dyslexique, originated as a class project as an ode to absurdity in a stop-motion animation using type and subliminal messages.. For the soundtrack, Zalum reveals an interesting working arrangement, “When I contacted my talented friend Marc Codsi in Beirut, I threw him a carte blanche and asked him to compose a demented soundtrack for my type video. We had collaborated in the past on a bunch of projects but we never had such a blast working together. Skype was the main hub in which we improvised and merged bits and pieces of children’s educational toy sounds, “google translate” recordings, cheap simili-egyptian moanings and a compelling electro beat.”
