This is stunning…
I’ve just discovered something wonderful! They’re a series of video podcasts by La Blogotheque.
Every week, we invite an artist or a band to play in the streets, in a bar, a park, or even in a flat or in an elevator, and we film the whole session. Of course, what makes the beauty of it is all the little incidents, hesitations, and crazy stuff happening unexpectingly. Besides, we do not edit the videos so they look perfectly flawless, instead we keep the raw sound of the surroundings. Our goal is to try and capture instants, film the music just like it happens, without preparation, without tricks. Spontaneity is the keyword.
Here are some of my all time favorite bands right now and, guess what!?? They all have mini concerts on La Blogotheque! Check them out or go peruse for YOUR favorite bands too! (Bonus, they have some great little stories about how each video was shot… what some of the hang-ups or great moments were and other little tidbits so it’s definitely worth jogging over to the actual site)
Thanks for sharing Joe!
William Wegman‘s Weimaraners from Sesame Street.
Our friend and fellow RA here in Craftsbury, Chris Dorman, is a pretty wonderful musician. He just posted a nice video about a song he learned from his son, Henry who makes me giggle every time we cross paths.
You can get a free download of my favorite song of his, Family Farm, and listen to more music here.
As I watched this interview with Billykirk on etsy today I could actually smell the leather they were working with and imagine what it would be like to watch them work together in their shop all day. The moments between dialogue where the camera focuses on the fellows working says volumes, a feeling their website couldn’t begin to convey. It’s worth watching for the general beauty of the camera work, the process behind their products and for the wonderful interactions between the two men.
Want to watch a mind-bendingly amazing music video? Check out “Pursuit of Happiness” by King Cudi… It’s been a while since I’ve seen something this beautiful and unexpected.
Kate shared this today.
I wish I’d seen this when I was little!
