It’s funny when people call out certain music saying “oh this has potential”, I almost started to write that about A Gap Between then thought, no I just want more of this, its a satisfying listen because that seems to be my honest reaction after just 30 seconds in.
Walls are pushing forward, taking that Kompakt sound into this synthesized organic realm full of bells over swelling arpeggios, beautiful energy.
Dam-Funk is the master of what he does, he lives and breathes a sound that might get written off to the unexperienced ear or the sport watching happy hour goers but the people that understand him are highly rewarded.
Watch this AFX video, if you never were in the rave scene and just love AFX start from 5:05
Ladies and gentlemen we are floating in space…actually we’re debuting this amazing Com Truise video, its kind of a mystery/love story meets gaming thing that actually has some feeling to it, amazing work by the 10 lb Pictures crew.
Incredible, working model of an airport in miniature. Apparently this is called “real-for-real”, described by CDM as “photographing real-world things, making real things in miniature, and setting the real world into motion”. Second video has some nice making of shots. Can’t even imagine the hours that must have gone into this.
Loving this new song and video from Beirut. The video is by Sunset Television. I don’t know much about them but I remember someone telling me they were a student collective from Columbia (could totally be making that up though). Anyways, loving the humor and aesthetic; very fitting.
Ivan Maximov created these opening titles for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea for a school project. Relatively simple, compared to some of the intricate excellence you see on Art of the Title these days, but I think they are extremely well executed. I really like the combination of live action underwater footage with some slick After Effects motion overtop. Would love to see a longer version.
A gorgeous informative short documentary about 3/11 in Japan debuted today via VBS.TV and Palladium Boots featuring Pharrell exploring the country and visiting artists and having them share their thoughts, feelings and creative work.
“Tokyo faces a new reality after the tragedy of 3/11. While persistent challenges still lay ahead, the city’s creative class is hell-bent on making sure that their hometown thrives. Innovative and resilient, they are defining the future of Tokyo on their own terms. We put our boots on and went exploring.”
I haven’t listened to Sigur Ros in ages yet I definitely credit their earlier work as some of the most beautiful live band shows i’ve ever seen. As for any info on INNI, we have none besides just signing up for their newsletter and watching this video below.
There’s always been an arms race of sorts, between startups, surrounding their 404 pages. Often times sites do something unusual on this (hopefully) seldom viewed page. When we first started working on Nosh, we had a lot of fun brainstorming ideas for our 404 page. We wanted it to be crazy and I think it ended up being just that.
Above you will find the video that became our 404 page. It’s loud, crazy and weird. Definitely the most fun I’ve had on a Sunday in a long time. I’ve written up some production notes here — if I miss anything feel free to ask in the comments and I’ll be sure to answer. Follow me on Twitter here.
