Wow…the amount of detail in this video is incredible. He has several more hand-drawn experimentations definitely worth checking out on his website, inkwood.net
Great visual work by Sabrina Ratté.
This amazing picture is probably more the reason I’m sharing this post. The music seems to fit the imagery well though and it’s some great headphone tunes nonetheless. It’d be great to see some motion graphics to go along with this mix. Maybe a hazy looping mix of scenes from classic 70s porn. Ha. Enjoy.
Just discovered a local Austin artist that goes by the name of Lazerhawk. He is one of the founding members of Rosso Corsa, a record label specializing in Outrun Electro, Dreamwave and Chillwave in dedication to the 1980s. If you’re into this style check out more of Rosso Corsa’s artists on their site, rossocorsarecords.com
I love stumbling across photography and video footage from the early days of Southern California skating culture. Synced together with music and it’s pure gold. I’ve posted this Jonathan Boulet video from quatuorlindsay before, but after gathering these images and seeing this Express Rising video I wanted to share it again.
Somewhere in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district, in a labyrinthine warehouse, down a twisting hallway, in a dark room, Pixel Memory is channeling transmissions from the interzone. A PA system pumps out a muscular beat, followed by a subterranean bassline. As the rhythm darts and ducks, an icy synthesizer plucks out a disorienting motif. Austin Fraser’s fingers tightly grip the knobs of his machines, giving the sounds life, cuing vocalist Lisa Greyson to step up to the microphone. Her lips unfurl an unearthly melody, full of dark emotion and desire. When the sound builds to a point of near-unbearable tension, drummer Joe Gray unleashes a gale-force beat. An orchestra of synthesizers twists and mutates into unrecognizable forms and the band charges into unknown space.
“There was a concept. A concept involving 10 Russian models, a Lamborghini, and Dion boosting virtually every air in the book, plus a couple new ones. Electric blue water contrasting against wild mountainous backdrops.”
“By the end of 2017 Dubai was effectively deserted. Many of the wealthy locals left for their summer houses in the UK and elsewhere. The evacuation of expatriates started slowly but soon become a mad scramble as the possibility of Iran’s intervention started to look a certainty. Most western expatriates got out before the summer, but tens of thousands of Asians struggled to find transportation and many perished as the power stations and de-salination plants ground to a halt. Humanitarian ships attempting to ferry refugees back to India and Pakistan slowly cleared the backlog of desperate people all along the Gulf coast; a job that was eventually completed by the end of the year.
Before leaving, the caretakers of the UAE’s zoos, wildlife parks and private animal collections opened the gates and cages of their facilities. Some animals refused to leave their accustomed accommodations and died there, but many escaped out into the empty streets.
On the outskirts of Dubai there still stood many of the incomplete construction projects, relics from the 2000′s building boom. Some of the remaining Bedouin discovered that abandoned excavations and subterranean basements could be easily converted into effective self-replenishing receptacles for groundwater and thereby created oases at various locations around the city.”
