Volor Flex :: Sabo

Volor FlexSabo” // Dark Clover Rec. // Release 30 November 2013 // Art: Jesse Somfay.

A master of lovelorn emotional surrender, Volor Flex brings his narrative to an end with Sabo, his fourth and last album under this alias. The reasons are only his to know, but Volor Flex certainly won’t be this producer’s final musical persona. Parts of Sabo already hint at subtle changes in direction and style – natural consequences of artistically perfecting oneself – showcasing even more of Volor’s expert manipulation of samples and composer skills.

Volor Flex’s reputation and popularity have been steadily on the rise for the past two years; he has released 3 albums and 3 EPs, all representative of what it means to brilliantly adapt the specifics of a signature style while living up to the staple sound itself. The man who has been referred to as Burial 2.0, Alex Frolov of Syktyvkar, Komi Republic, Russia delivers us a complete, 20-track long, intensely introspective album, possibly his finest work to date.

Sabo is laden with familiar bittersweet moods made of crisp, dancy garage breaks paired with artfully constructed soundscapes as fragile as glass that Volor peels back until they break apart and fade away. All twenty tracks enclose the darnkess of the boreal forest, the harshness of the tundra, the anxiousness of isolation, the solace of being lost in thought and the memories of a loved one. Volor Flex adds a new expanse to the timeless comfort area that he’s been building and has now completed, a place of relief and daydreaming the listener will repeatedly want to come back to.

The Art of Chucco // Alexandre Belbari

Diese ausgewählten Illustrationen stammen von dem 25-jährigen Designer & Animator Alexandre Belbari, der seine Arbeiten auch unter dem Namen Chucco veröffentlicht. Gleich nach seinem Studium begann er zunächst seine Karriere als Animator in verschiedenen Unternehmen in London. Trotzdem hörte er aber nie auf zu zeichnen und so begann er darauf im Jahr 2011 als freiberuflicher Charakterdesigner und Konzeptkünstler zu arbeiten. Ein Jahr später arbeitete er dann unter anderem für BBC in London, als Charakterdesigner für einen animierten Kurzfilm, der einen Preis in der Kategorie Kinderanimation gewann. Danach zog es Chucco nach Deutschland, bis er schließlich in Australien landete, wo er seine Konzeptkunst für mehrere unterschiedliche Firmen entwickelt.

Mouth Wide Open, Ears Shut Tight

A graduation film by Emlly Noy & Tom Madar.

A day in the life of a young woman living a silent, lonely life with her friend the fish. The silence is broken when a new tenant comes to live in the apartment next door. Notwithstanding the constant sounds and noise penetrating through the other side of the wall and perhaps because of them, the young woman finds herself falling in love with her neighbor.

The Unfinished Painting

A young painter desperately tries to draw the best eyes for the woman’s face in his painting and mysteriously falls into the surrealistic world, created by his own imagination.

“The Unfinished Painting” is a student animation short. The stylistic of the film is inspired by Giorgio De Chirico’s works. The animation technique involves a combination of live action and animation.

Director & Script: Rositsa Vangelova • Music by Lyubomir Denev “Junior”.
