I’ve been getting lost in Soundcloud lately. I’m especially feeling the dreamlike, deep house mixes from Viperflo. Perfect headphone music to work to. This mix starts off slow, but every piece of it is amazing. Do yourself a favor…hit play, turn up the volume and just open a new tab in your browser. You won’t want to shut this one off. Enjoy.
Before moving to TX, I was fortunate enough to have been handed a 1979 Nikon EM as a gift from my grandmother. Until last weekend, it has just been collecting dust on a shelf, along with its original owner’s manual and a couple of other loose documents it came with. I brought it down from the shelf as if it were a piece of ancient machinery, not even knowing how to load or unload the thing. After watching a couple of videos and reading through the owner’s manual, Charmie and I planned a little photo shoot around the house. I bought her Neil Krug’s Pulp Art Book for Christmas so we have both been wanting to experiment with photography for several weeks now. I couldn’t be happier with the way these turned out. The results are something I’ve been trying to achieve with digital images for some time now. I love the darkness and natural graininess that film produces. It doesn’t hurt that I have a beautiful subject to focus on either. I’m looking forward to many more explorations with this camera in the future.
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.
