The Green Ray – Kris Merc/Kool Keith

Been meaning to post this for a long time. Behind the scenes thoughts and insight. Quite a laborious process, but an interesting style that works in tandem with flow and feeling of song. Well Done.

The movement of air

Similar shapes to last blog – very different ideas.

Watch a Scientist Shoot Himself Underwater

Underwater science and entertainment. I’m sold.

“Physicist Andreas Wahl set out to show the power of resistance by setting up a daredevil experiment: Head out of water, the scientist pulls a string attached to the trigger of a gun, just feet away underwater. But, as the slow motion footage demonstrates beautifully, the water’s density magically stops the bullet.”

Good stuff. Beautiful as well.

Movie Mondays: Eggplant

Some fascinating ideas in here. What if your every instinct was opposite of what is expected? What do we really say when we communicate? Who decides when a gesture is appropriate?

Every Frame a Painting: Buster Keaton

Buster Keaton – The Art of the Gag from Tony Zhou on Vimeo.

Every frame a painting is a brilliant series. About time they profiled the most brilliant filmmaker ever (in my humble opinion.)

Movie Mondays: WAVEFORM

A little too trippy for my tastes, but undeniable flow and vision to make this happen.

Movie Mondays: Sounds of Surroundings (the Wikisinger)

Wow. This is amazing.
As a photographer, I get super exited when I’m in environments of interesting lighting. I’ve often have wondered if people of different professions/passions are always judging/taking in micro-aspects of places they are in: are Foresters always seeing what types of wood are in the buildings and furniture around them? Do Dentists sneak peeks at strangers’ teeth? This is a great representation of what curiosity of differences made manifest with sound and singer. Strikingly well done. Beautiful.

This guy sings the same song in 15 different places. Hear what happens!
No artificial reverb added.

The Wikisinger sings the same song in different environments experimenting with natural reverb, early reflections and short delays.

One of the scenes is recorded in an anechoic chamber without any sound reflections.

Movie Monday: Breath Again

Well this is disturbing and odd. Thoughtful? Maybe. Interesting? I’d say so.
