The Conductor

March 22nd, 2010

The Conductor is a video installation by Rashaad Newsome. He isolated, enlarged and repositioned hand moves from Hip Hop music videos to create a conductor for “O Fortuna” and “Fortune Plango Vulnera” form Carl Orff’s “Carmina Burana”. Dope!

Update: The embedded video is offline, but you can watch the video here. (thanks bob)

This is the music video for Grindin’ by Nobody Beats The Drum. It’s a very impressive stop motion piece made with 4085 photos, yet very simple. The music is … well not my cup of tea and you might want to turn down the volume. The making of video is actually quite entertaining.

AntiVJ made this light and sound installation called “Tour des Convoyeurs” during the Mutek festival in Montreal. We’ve seen video projections on buildings before, but the look and feel of this one is very nice.

Hubero Kororo designed this interactive CD cover for the band Uceroz. When you open the CD packaging on the side, ink is set free and bleeds into the cover of the CD. I really like this idea.
