New York City never seemed that small! Director Sam O’Hare created this short film by shooting more than 35.000 stills that show a day in the life of New York City, in miniature; produced by Sara Eolin.

The original music is by Human, co-written by Rosi Golan and Alex Wong. The piece was created for and inspired by the film. For a description of the shoot, camera, lenses and workflow, read an interview with Sam O’Hare  here.

shocking: M.I.A.’s new video “Born Free”

Posted in film, music by welcomebemymuse on April 26, 2010

If you’re a sensitive person you might want to mind watching M.I.A.’s latest music video to her new single “Born Free”. With the length of a short film this video is a brutal and realistic comment on racial violence, directed by Romain Gavras who already directed Justice’s video to “Stress”.

In this Massive Attack video,  Georgina Spelvin talks about her former work as a porn actress in the 1970ies. I first found this during the short movie night at UCLA’s Hammer Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.

If it is too much for you, you might prefer the more artsy video version:

BLACK TAXI – forget about yellow cabs!

Posted in music by welcomebemymuse on April 15, 2010

Black Taxi guitarist Bill Mayo explains the band’s name as “Tom Hanks once told us to wait fort he black taxi, so yeah, you do what Tom Hanks says, ya know? He was in “Big“, ‚nuff said.“ – True, ‘nuff said!

The four members Bill Mayo, Krisana Soponpong, Ezra Huleatt and Jason Holmes started in 2007 – after Ezra and Krisana met at an orgy in Thailand – “no joke” Bill says. “The rest is history.” Their sound is influenced by The Doors, Dick Dale, Clash, Leonard Cohen and The Police but if you ask Bill to describe it, he’d answer “If you like King Crimson, it sounds like that.  If you like Jay Z, it sounds just like him.  If Cindy Lauper is more your style, Black Taxi is definitely for you. Nobody has actually been able to describe what we do.  The members of this band come from such different musical backgrounds, the songs we create can sound like Depeche Mode or Stephen Sondheim.  It usually has a pretty good beat though.  I give it a 7.2.“ – Why only a 7.2.?

The recording of their album „Things of That Nature“ was documented by the two award-winning filmmakers Nate Kath and Jason Sager in 2009, where they followed the band through the rehearsals and the recording sessions at Bunker.

Anything else? Oh yeah! Don’t miss their upcoming show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY on May 14!

Thanks Bill for the interview!
