huge facade animation

June 7th, 2011


 

 

suposedly, this is a handful of abandoned buildings in Oslo which André Chocron uses as canvases when he creates an impressive animated visual. However, I am not sure if should belive the story.

in any case, the piece is great and speaks from my heart.

this project is the official music video for Cold Mailman’s “Time is of the essence”. This is a shortened version of the song, the full version of which appears on the album “Relax; the mountain will come to you”.

london tube guerilla

May 26th, 2011

When there is nothing else to do I discover myself reading the subway maps. These underwent a guerilla update after a bunch of crafty conceptualists boarded the 13:50 tube from Epping to West Ruislip armed with wit, stickers and a camera. They upgraded the factual signage into humorous comments on travel and life in London. Super simple, super effective.

They form an ensemble that the conductor, harpsichordist and composer Michael Petermann, alias weiserrausch.de, has now completed after eight years of preparation: The Stupid Orchestra.
