Deft :: Blue Jasmine

DeftBlue Jasmine” ★ Label: Project Mooncircle ★ Released 02 December 14 ★

Deft sets the tone early on his Blue Jasmine EP with an intro that juxtaposes the meaning of hypnosis and awakening, foreshadowing the way ambient elements are fused with heavy drums and complex rhythms. Energetically pulling the listener out of any hypnosis – or rather into? – the dark and massive basslines will haunt us through dark underground clubs all over.

“Further explorations with footwork/dnb with ambient pieces, a direction I want to take further in the future.”Deft.

Crowded by Andrew Khosravani & Cristina Florit Gomila

The denizens of Crowded amble through their ever-expanding habitat seemingly oblivious to their mutating landscape – while the voyeur sits back and inhales the swarming scenery.

The convivial tone veils the dystopian message of the narrative. Cranes, trains and automobiles instil a sense of constant industry – as the populous swells upwards, outwards, downwards and inwards – contorting and adapting – forcing the inhabitants to recast themselves.

Direction, Animation, Set Design: Andrew Khosravani & Cristina Florit Gomila.

Bruce by Jason Stanfield

Bruce Riley is a hardworking Chicago artist who’s redefining the meaning of the word “painting” – which even that is somewhat misleading. They’re more like psychedelic chemical reactions inside a microscope as seen through a telescope. He calls it flow.

EDEKA präsentiert “Kassensymphonie” // Sponsored

Weihnachten ist angestimmt!

EDEKA stimmt die Weihnachtszeit mit der weltweit ersten Kassensymphonie an.

Das ist einmal wieder eine “supergeile” Idee von EDEKA, die sich diesmal einen Konzertgenuss der ganz besonderen Art ausgedacht haben: die erste Kassensymphonie der Welt!

In einem EDEKA Markt in der Nähe von Koblenz, an einem normalen Verkaufstag und mit echten Kunden, wird der Klassiker Jingle Bells live vom typischen Kassenpiepsen performed.

Mit dabei sind 13 versteckte Kameras und 9 Kassierer, die das Weihnachtslied an ihren Kassen einstudiert haben und von dem Beatboxer RoBeat unterstützt werden. Aber sieh selbst:

Ergänzt wird die tolle Aktion durch einen Adventskalender mit täglichen Gewinnen auf der EDEKA-Website. Auf Facebook bekommst Du weitere Informationen und kannst Fan werden.

Wanderers // A Short Film by Erik Wernquist

Wanderers is a vision of humanity’s expansion into the Solar System, based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens. The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available.

Without any apparent story, other than what you may fill in by yourself, the idea of the film is primarily to show a glimpse of the fantastic and beautiful nature that surrounds us on our neighboring worlds – and above all, how it might appear to us if we were there.

Visuals: Erik Wernquist • Music: Cristian Sandquist • Words & Voice: Carl Sagan.

Postcards from Pripyat, Chernobyl

Earlier this year Danny Cooke had the opportunity to visit Chernobyl whilst working for CBS News on a ’60 Minutes’ episode which aired on Nov. 23, 2014.

“Chernobyl is one of the most interesting and dangerous places I’ve been. The nuclear disaster, which happened in 1986 (the year after I was born), had an effect on so many people, including my family when we lived in Italy. The nuclear dust clouds swept westward towards us. The Italian police went round and threw away all the local produce and my mother rushed out to purchase as much tinned milk as possible to feed me, her infant son.

It caused so much distress hundreds of miles away, so I can’t imagine how terrifying it would have been for the hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian citizens who were forced to evacuate.

During my stay, I met so many amazing people, one of whom was my guide Yevgen, also known as a ‘Stalker’. We spent the week together exploring Chernobyl and the nearby abandoned city of Pripyat. There was something serene, yet highly disturbing about this place. Time has stood still and there are memories of past happenings floating around us.

Armed with a camera and a dosimeter geiger counter I explored…”
