Quote: Depression (February 2010)

Johnathan Davis:A lot of people don’t realize that depression is an illness. I don’t wish it on anyone, but if they would know how it feels, I swear they would think twice before they just shrug it.”

Ephémère

One of the most spectacular shows I have ever attended whas the Ephemere fireworks show last summer. (Yes, I am lagging with my posts about half a year) 😛

Ephemere is one of the most famous fireworks theaters in Europe. The show was a choreographic artwork that was synchronized  in perfect harmony with classical and modern music.

A friend of mine played in the accompanying orchestra and I said to him after show: “Poor you, you were not able to enjoy the show, because you had to play while we were watching the fireworks.” He replied: “Why poor me? It was fantastic. I was part of the show. The fireworks sounds matched our playing perfectly and it even made me goosebumps.” I think that underlines the perfect choreography.

The show was 25 minutes and FREEEEE!

Good thing I forgot my camera at home, so I was able to focus on the music and the visual artwork entirely without having to worry about camera settings 😉

Pixelated Music – A Picture that Goes with a Song, Johann Sebastian Bach: Air on the G String

This is the first post of my new series: Pixelated Music – A Picture that Goes with a Song.
The idea came to my mind while I was surfing the flickrsphere. When I like a picture, I automatically connect it to a song, so this blog series is just the logical consequence 😉

I have not been very active on flickr lately and have hardly kept track with what my friends were doing. So, when I logged on the other day…….a NICE surprise was waiting for me. Zonja Capalini has made some really great videos, they are simply AMAZING ! 😀

Zonja: “I filmed a lot of raw footage in wireframe under extreme WindLight settings, then I filmed Condensation Land using again WL settings that give an almost-black-and-white look, white fast-moving clouds, and the rest are remnants from the last video, I put the model to dance underwater under, again extreme WindLight settings”

….as simple as that 😉
Of course, there is more to it than adjusting environmental settings / WindLight parameters. Hopefully, Zonja lets us in on the secrets of artistic video making soon. For the time being, however, she’s busy getting footage for her next videos. One thing is for sure, she’s a brilliant artist and I will certainly cover more of her artwork in the coming week.
Zonja, you’re the Queen of Rhythm and WindLight!
