Using animation, projections and her own moving shadow, Miwa Matreyek performs a gorgeous, meditative piece about inner and outer discovery. Take a quiet 10 minutes and dive in. With music from Anna Oxygen, Mirah, Caroline Lufkin and Mileece.

I recently bought an issue of Wolphin, a DVD magazine. It was a 'Best of' issue and this documentary was on the disc.
It's probably the best 25 minutes you should spend on watching/surfing the internet today!
it is about a heavy metal band formed by 10-yeard old kids. They're crap ofcourse, but they think they are good. And especially the dad (of the singer) is extremely... extreme. They are rehearsing for their first perormance for '2000' people. Only if they knew...
A must-watch! They are serious about it!
Great music video/documentary!
The author's statement:
"We just returned from Los Angeles shooting a documentary/ music video for Dutch indie band ‘TIKA’. We battled the crazy heat that kept this city in a ferm grip, and followed actor Carel Struycken (The Adams Family, Star Trek, Het Paard van Sinterklaas) on his voyage from ‘the best that civilisation has to offer’ to the wildest of nature, in the middle of Californian deserts, mountain ranges and lakes.
FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE is a documentary disguised as a music video. It’s a short documentary that is made as a music video for the Dutch indie band Tika, a combination of Moss and El Pino.
The film explores the increasing unease that many feel with modern society. We show this feeling through the eyes of ‘giant’ Carel Struycken, who rose to fame by playing iconic freaks in pop culture, like Lurch in the Adams Family and Mr. Homn in Star Trek.
The 63 year old actor has sharp observations on the way we live our lives and how we perceive one another. "
This is such a great idea. For the new single by Steye they made a interactive video, a 360 degrees video with karaoke text if you click on the video itself. Have fun and sing-a-long. Nice music as well!
The critical acclaims below are pretty much explaining why you should take a look at the amazing sound sculpture works by ZIMOUN.
With hundreds of dc-motors, wires and cardboard boxes he creates wonderful artworks.
«The sound sculptures and installations of Zimoun are graceful, mechanized works of playful poetry, their structural simplicity opens like an industrial bloom to reveal a complex and intricate series of relationships, an ongoing interplay between the «artificial» and the «organic». It‘s an artistic research of simple and elegant systems to generate and study complex behaviors in sound and motion. Zimoun creates sound pieces from basic components, often using multiples of the same prepared mechanical elements to examine the creation and degeneration of patterns.» Tim Beck
«It is a poetic and humorous absurdity we find in Zimoun’s work, which opens up a wide, refreshing and enriching space for discoveries, associations and a multitude of approaches.» Nina Terry
«Zimoun creates more than moving structures; he develops a space where the oeuvre, once it’s set in motion, can create itself.» Oscar Gomez Poviña
«Zimoun is best compared to a watchmaker of a self-reproducing time constructing his own gauging station.» Radjo Monk
Andreas Nicolas Fischer is an artist working with generative systems, physical representations of data as well as visualizations of digital processes. And the work he makes is very intrigiuing. His latest work, the PL I, II and III serie have also some videos.
Reflection II, commissioned by 5 Days Off Festival, combines sound that reacts on the sculpture when it's scanned. But there are a lot more projects worth watching on his website.
Turn your speakers up! ;)
This is an excerpt from a performance made in part to demonstrate the effect of noise pollution from opencast mining and in part to demonstrate the art heritage of the Vevring community which is about to be destroyed by the mining project (www.bygdasframtid.com). The instruments are part of "Desibel", an exhibit made for the 30th anniversary of the Vevring Art Exhibition (www.vevringutstillinga.no), created by Geir Hjetland. The composition is by Maia Ratkje.
