Music by “Halls”

February 26th, 2012 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

Halls – Lifeblood. from Ben Symonds on Vimeo.

Halls – I Am Not Who You Want from The Sounds Of Sweet Nothing on Vimeo.

I really like music by Halls. It’s the solo project of south London-based musician Samuel Howard.  He combines “looped electronic samples with sparse vocals” with dense reverbs. The video for “Lifeblood” was created by Ben Symonds using footage from the BBC’s “Planet Earth” and “Frozen Planet”. Amazing outcome and works really well with the music.

Be sure to check out the Fragile EP on Bandcamp.

Cuthead – Vibratin’

Great track and video from Uncanny Valley’s Cuthead. Originally released in December on his Brother EP, which is just great and definitely worth the buy.
Be sure to follow Uncanny Valley, some great output from Dresden. Video produced by Robert Arnold –

Till Nowak – Digital Artist

January 19th, 2012 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

In line of the Transmediale Festival in Berlin from  30.01 – 05.02.12. I want to show you the work of Till Nowak.

He will present his short film “The Centrifuge Brain Project” at the Festival. It’s not online, but i give you a short vision. In this fictive documentation he builds monstrous machines, which scientist use to overcome gravity. With 3-D-Modelling-and Animation Software he manipulates the reality. After taking live pictures to extract the 3-D structure, he put these animation back to the documentary footage via Match-Moving-Method. So that we get the impression, that gravity is no matter anymore.

The Rhythm between Sound and Motion

August 4th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

Ok first to say. I want that film. Second,I still want that film, Third I want it now. But ok, here are some information about this project. This film is a result of a creative output of established and great sound- and motiondesigners. 20 Motiondesigner and 11 Sounddesigner worked together to explore and research the relation between sound and geometry. They split up in teams, so that they all started from a different point and used different technical solutions.
Maybe these names sound familiar to you: Onur Senturk, Kultnation, Mate Steinforth or Korb set up a team or Audionerve, Mutant Jukebox, Echolab, and World Gang developed developed these experimental work in a double.
The best is to see it for yourself.

To get more in touch with this kind of sound and music, their will be soon ( 15.8-21.8.11) an Event in Berlin, Krake Festival I will be there, more Information coming soon.

Herman Kolgen – Video Art

May 15th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

I saw his video production DUST at the Transmediale 2011 opening. I remembered this video because a fly got on my nerves a couple of minutes before. The good thing, I am not able to see this close-up view with my eyes and my room is not so dusty. But Herman Kolgen gave us the chance to show us an abstract view from a short life of a fly.

for more informations visit his website and you can find more videos on vimeo

Magnetic Movie

March 9th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

“The secret lives of invisible magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic ever-changing geometries . All action takes place around NASA’s Space Sciences Laboratories, UC Berkeley, to recordings of space scientists describing their discoveries . Actual VLF audio recordings control the evolution of the fields as they delve into our inaudible surroundings, revealing recurrent ‘whistlers’ produced by fleeting electrons . Are we observing a series of scientific experiments, the universe in flux, or a documentary of a fictional world?”

In Magnetic Movie, Semiconductor have taken the magnificent scientific visualisations of the sun and solar winds conducted at the Space Sciences Laboratory and Semiconducted them.

With Magnetic Movie, Semiconductor have tapped into a new and ancient aesthetic of turbulence. We can hear it in the sounds of natural radio-naturally-occurring electromagnetic signals from the earth’s ionosphere and magnetosphere-that course through Magnetic Movie, at times animating the animation, a quick nervous response condensed into static.

Weapon of Choice

February 25th, 2011 // 1 Comment // Posted by Andrea

performed by Barbara Lüneburg, composed by Alexander Schubert

I love this combination of a classical instrument performing experimental and challenging sound in fusion with a visual projection. The music is measured with sensors, so that the the projection is following the pattern of the music. Great Live Performance. A mixture between an arty composing and modern electronica style.

In this relation i want to introduce you to sinebag another project of Alexander Schubert, more club like.
It is hard to describe the music, very thoughtful, influenced by classical composing and inspired by electronic music. Produced with live electronics, modular synthesizers and music software.
