Continuing on from my last post, here is another sample video of work done using Cinema 4D software.
This auto-tune the news segment by the Gregory Brothers is one of my favorites. It always makes me laugh out loud. Catchy tune and the singer has a great sultry raspy voice. For the best entertainment value, check out the original news clip (above) first and then watch the music video version (below).
Fugdale’s second official music video, “Millicent and Madison” has finally been released on Youtube and Vimeo. “Millicent and Madison” is the story of two awkward and ugly teenagers whose very existence gets them teased and bullied. They are excluded from social circles and never granted invitations to all the wild parties thrown by the stuck-up kids in school. If you’ve ever been bullied, you might identify with Millie and Madie. But, this video takes things to the extreme by presenting these two below-average individuals through the eyes of the bully himself. Read more
I, like millions of other people, enjoy listening to Gotye. Their song “Somebody That I Used To Know” remains one of their most recognized tunes. There are several dozen different youtube version of this song floating out there and now Gotye has gone one step further and made a mashup of the song using several of these versions as source material. It’s really cool when you can mash-up your own song. I dream of the day.
ArtiGussy is a one-man instrumentalist, vocalist, and songwriter from Lyon, France. His music recalls John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Boy Least Likely and many other great artists. Lyrically clever, and rich with variety, each song plays harmonically on the ear. ArtiG. knows how to strum a uke and tinkle the ivories as well. He infuses gobs of rich instrumentation from a variety of sources to make each song unique. Check out some of his selections from SoundCloud. I’m particularly fond of “Simply Stare” and “Bitter Sweets”.
Discovered RDTR Productions on Cloudkillers and was blown away at how much fun the music was. Most of it is labeled Hip-Hop on Soundcloud, but this is unlike any hip-hop I’ve ever heard. Take a listen to these two tracks to discover for yourself.
Remixers of culture, Negativland, have always been on the forefront of changing copyright laws back to their original intent of promoting creative works as opposed to squashing them. They’ve been leaders in changing people’s views as they move away from corporate control paradigms of production and distribution of art and music into the new digital era of free public domain of culture (the way it used to be before copyright laws came into existence). For anyone interested in exploring this subject further, take a read at this brilliant article by Negativland, “Two Relationships to a Cultural Public Domain”. Also be sure to read more from Negativland on the subject.
Additionally, for all you musicians and artists out there who are struggling to make a buck in the digital age, I highly recommend reading Andrew Dubber’s e-book (available for free or pay-what-you-want download), “Music in the Digital Age”. Dubber truly embraces the new paradigm that has arisen within the internet and will give you many great words of advice on how to prosper and stay afloat in the new model of commerce and creativity.
Drag queens are hilarious. And Chick-fil-A can bite me. The two together are internet magic.
This track takes you up up up. Really good trance.
Seattle artist Jon Joslin’s music feels moody, solemn, fleshy and poignant. He seriously needs more SoundCloud followers. This awesome stuff is just waiting for an audience.
Italian instrumental band, Calibro 35, has a 70′s jazzy detective style and groove. This video, directed by Francesco Brunotti fits their musical style perfectly. Using retro, paper cutout graphic animations mixed with noir film sequences, it really fills your mind with cop-film madness.
Funk/soul musician Carson Henley heats up downtown Seattle in this video for “Fire”. It’s full of gymnastic flips and Parkour stunts as he and his friends bounce around the city on the tail of an elusive girl. Anyone from Seattle should get a kick out of seeing these folks jumping from site to site. And Carson’s music has a funky groove which perfectly fits his soulful bluesy voice.
